Nirvana had a larger cultural impact.  They galvanized youth culture in a way that Gene Simmons could only dream about.

Nothing Nirvana did lasted 20 years.


Are you kidding?  There are all kinds of bands that broke, and are still around, because of the groundwork laid by Nirvana.

Let's talk about the cultural influence of an habitual junkie who offed himself.   :lulz:

Such an example!

Yeah, this is just my experience here, but I've never heard anyone gush about Nirvana's cultural impact who didn't have a bong in one hand and a crack pipe in the other.

I think we should most definitely commermorate his life and cultural influence on youth.

Maybe we could name a needle exchange program after him.

A needle exchange program and a suicide prevention hotline and a new hybrid of marijuana. For medicinal purposes. To fight depression.

I think the hopeless fangirling about Nirvana is just a troll, guys.

Naw.  The insane inconsistency is actually consistent for RWHN.

I hope not.

Because listening to RWHN gush about that dead junkie is like watching Jay & Silent Bob going off about how Morris Day and The Time was the best band ever.

Such as...


Radiohead, for starters.  They got their foot in the door because of Creep which had the same soft/loud dynamic, angsty lyrics, and a buzzsaw guitar approach.

The Smashing Pumpkins were languishing as a weird alt-metal band, relegated to Headbanger's Ball and 120 Minutes until Nirvana came along.

For better or for worse, they also paved the way for Green Day and The Offspring.

Radiohead, you say? 

Why, yes, considering how they formed 2 years before Nirvana did, and their music made it big at about the exact same time on two different sides of the Atlantic within a few months or so of each other, that has to be the case.

:lol:

Another crime to lay at Nirvana's feet.

And where have the Smashing Pumpkins been, recently?  Playing county fairs, perhaps?

The Offspring formed 3 years before Nirvana.

A troll would be awesome in comparison to someone REALLY REALLY believing Nirvana was that earth-shattering.

No, it warms my cold & dead heart to think that someone like RWHN exists, exactly as advertized.
