RIP Kurt Cobain - 18 years.
I actually like this song.
Layne Staley too. Well, not 18 years and give or take a day or two either side.
Yep, I forgot to mention Layne. Both legends gone way too soon.
I know you're a technical music supremacist that rags on Nirvana, but why not give In Utero a spin in memory of the great man?
Then maybe Dirt or Alice in Chains s/t for Layne.
Alice On Chains all the way. R.I.P Staley.
Have you ever listened to In Utero or what?
Yeah I listened to In Utero, good album, not as good as people make of it.
I find it's fairly underrated to be honest. You'd be forgiven for thinking Nirvana only have one album (or song for that matter). They truly crafted something unique on that album.
In Utero is an amazing album. I have no problem with people genuinely disagreeing with that but I notice there's a lot of contrarians about these days who deliberately choose not to like an album/band because it's something of a sacred cow. It's a bullshit, pretentious and smug attitude that I can't stand. For some reason Nirvana get the brunt of it in recent times. I'm not saying that's Abo, just a general comment on an attitude I see more and more of these days.
I have to say Foo Fighters are absolute muck too. Two good albums- the first and second and even then TCATS could do with losing 3 or 4 songs.
Nevermind is Nirvana's sacred cow.
I'm not a fan of Foo Fighters either, was just trolling Parksey.
Haters gonna hate.
Agreed. I have a lot of friends who are apparently into "indie" music and most of them don't like Nirvana because they "don't like their sound". One's favourite band is the Foo Fighters and even he doesn't like Nirvana ffs.
I actually have a lot of time for Foo Fighters. Sure they had a few average albums but Grohl can always come up with a monster song. I think their first 3 albums are classic.
I don't much care for Nirvana but I love Pearl Jam. Not related, it wasn't ever because Nirvana hit it big (although it worked out better for Pearl Jam in the end) and Pearl Jam didn't become as mainstream. I just don't like the sound of Nirvana. Different strokes...
Side note, I do like most Foo Fighters, but they aren't a band I rave about. Foo Fighters are also more likeable as Grohl is generally hilarious and doesn't take himself serious.
I've never really been able to get too into Pearl Jam aside from a few songs. I do think they are a good band, though.
I agree with you about the Foo Fighters. There's no way in hell I'd ever say they were one of the best bands out there in terms of the quality of their musical output.
Why is this stuck in my head major sad face.
New song from Beach House. Loving it, probably even more so than their last album.
Here's some Cocoon for you, don't know which songs you posted abo, I didn't look:
