I won't get into it, and I know LOTS of people love 'em, but if you want my opinion... I think Nirvana is for the most part crap. Grunge never did anything for me, not to mention all these people I keep running into at jams who are inspired by Kurt and have been playing for a couple years yet can only play patterns of power chords up and down the neck... Tongue

BUT... I know Kurt Kobain was influencial to music and all that, I just really don't (didn't?) care for his music or his attitude. But that's just me, like I said before there are plenty of people who love the music and I've got no problem with that.

Kurt Cobain definetly wasn't the most talented at guitar. And I'm usually not into the less complex 4/3 power chord stuff, but for some reason the band Nirvana really appeals to my music taste.

and I pity you for not appreciating the enlish language enough. There refers to a place ("A dog is sitting there") or is used like "there is a dog.". Their, is used to show ownership by a group.....

Also, you must realize that it is not just opening up our minds. Music means many different things to different people. To think that if we don't all agree because our minds are  closed, that is backwards. It's the other way around. Personally, I am not feeling any lack in my music enjoyment, so don't feel any need to pity me.

It's not that I'm closed-minded, I just don't enjoy his music much. You're perfectly entitled to your opinion. Smiley

and i pitty you for being so close-minded.  it's not that people aren't open minded, it's that the music itself (in it's complexity) kinda sucked.  but, of course, the teenyboppers fled to the crimescene and screamed like idiots, thus, making it popular.  if you want to listen to grunge, try motherlovebone or mudhoney, not pop-music like nirvana.

and yes, kurt kobain killed himself because he had become what he hated, a pop-star.

hehe nice try, i own all nirvana records as i was once like you, young. nirvana have some really nice songs no doubt about that. but as other ppl already stated their music lacks complexity and cobain was neither a good singer nor a good guitar player. listen to alice in chains or mudhoney or the screaming trees or sound garden or helmet or or or.... if you want to give more modern aproaches a try listen to tool a perfect circle. those have the by far most complex patterns in their music ( granted there's a lot of metal bands that are more sophisticated in terms of guitar playing but you can't find any better drumming out there. )

again nirvana is nice to some extend but not outstanding. it's a hype and you fell for it....

Quote from: "Something Awful"

If I hear another shuffly-haired VH1 twerp pundit smirk out a sardonic little nip of garlic about how Nirvana saved us from hair metal, I’m going to swear off of bad pop-culture-based cable programming forever. Nirvana didn’t save us from shit. They just happened to wander across the teetering fulcrum of shitty eighties music and tip it towards shitty nineties music. I’m no hair metal apologist, but do you think I’m going to thank Cobain for popularizing the humorless angst-sludge that we’re still trying to get rid of today? No way. Grunge basically turned into its own form of hair-metal eventually by way of Creed and Nickelback. Am I blaming Kurt Cobain for stuff that went down way after his death? Yeah, I pretty much am. His suicide made him a martyr, and now we’ll never be rid of him, and he’s galvanized hordes of young longhairs to clench their teeth and make some really serious shit. Also, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was and still is a major bore. I’d take Skid Row any day. At least “I’ll Remember You” moved around a little.

Actually... Gene Hoglan of Strapping Young Lad. (and many others)--Listen to his drumming. Not JUST fast and crazily complex (it is when it needs to be) but also has lots of style. There are quite a few amazing drummers out there from both metal and jazz bands. (yes I said jazz :wink: )

i would never dare to compare a jazz drummer to a pop band drummer or anything the like. yes you are right there's plenty of good other drummers in the alternative scene. the dresden dolls drummer for example has a very interesting style. never listened to the band you mentioned i will check it out.
