    Default Nirvana...the band

    Who else here has absolute love for Nirvana? I'm listening to Do Re Mi and it's orgasmic.

    The only Seattle band I could say I loved was Alice in Chains. Nirvana was okay, but too (hmmm...I can't think of the right word) for me to really get into them.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Nirvana's been my favorite band since middle school. Kurt Cobain was a rhythmical genius, finding beats and tunes that could repetitively get stuck in your head and become your absolute background music to the soul.

    I remember when Cobain killed himself and the local student newspaper ran an editorial asking why it couldn't be Eddie Vedder.

    LOL

    Nirvana was groundbreaking in their ability to meld punk with catchy anthems. Some bands in the 80s got close, but not like Nirvana. Even Sonic Youth saw their potential. Still, I have a hard time believeing they ever got THAT big.

    I have an easier time believing that than I do believing that Hootie & the Blowfish were, briefly, the biggest band in the world.

    That would've made more sense. Pearl Jam's music just went to hell after Ten (haven't really kept up with it after Vitology), but Nirvana was still good on In Utero.

    They were going pretty far off the radar when Cobain died, which was arguably intentional, because Cobain hated most of the kids who bought his records!

    Anyway, I adore Nirvana, but I hate Butch Vig, so I have trouble listening to Nevermind anymore. Incesticide is "The Essential Nirvana."

    Here's a fav. performance of mine. Cobain's guitar or amp fails halfway through. YouTube - Nirvana - Drain You (live)

    Dude, Drain You and Aneurysm are my favorite Nirvana songs

    I think Krist Novoselic becoming a politician was just as big a surprise as Cobain dying.


    During MTV Unplugged, inbetween songs:

    Random guy in crowd: MTV Sucks!
    Kurt, tuning his guitar, looks up: Then why are you here?


    [youtube=BJWldQbi9D8]Nirvana - Talk to Me, Live 1991[/youtube]
    ^one of the less known songs that I truly enjoy, of course you have to be a Nirvanaholic to really like it. i think, anyways. You folk may surprise me.
