    Thumbs up Nirvana appreciation thread....

    .... I miss curt and the boys soo much...





    How the hell did we wind up like this
    Why weren't we able
    To see the signs that we missed
    And try to turn the tables

    I wish you'd unclench your fists
    And unpack your suitcase
    Lately there's been too much of this
    Dont think its too late

    Nirvana was the first band that I ever liked. Growing up around Alabama hillbillies meant that I had never heard anything other than country music up until the day I first heard of Nirvana on our local school channel 1 closed circuit news. I was 11 years old, and Kurt had just killed himself. But his death brought attention to his music which I feel in love with immediately. Nevermind was the first piece of music I ever purchased. My introduction to good music came at the cost of one of Rock Music's greatest heros.

    I saw Nirvana after Bleach came out right before Nevermind hit the shelves. They opened for Pearl Jam and the Chili Peppers. I still remember the ovation for Nirvana after they finished seemed to go on forever. Then Eddie Vedder walked onstage by himself and asked the crowd-"just how the fuck are we supposed to follow that?"

    I lived in Seattle when they came out and I'm probably the only one who don't have a good story. I remember when they had the memorial at the Seattle Center when Kurt died though. I think I have all their music on my computer, but only listen to it every so often.

    So you're saying that you're listening to Nirvana caused Kurt Cobain's death? It's got to suck to be you then.

    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    I think the picture was meant to represent the downfall of Rock music.

    I was in High School when they started to become popular, but secretly I was already a fan after the record store dude sold me the Bleach tape, 1991...8th grade, my best mother, the only woman who ever seemed to actually care about my feelings died of adrenal cancer. Then came Nevermind which just blew me away, the tone of that tape just resonated with my depression, but later when they started becoming more popular I didn't start wearing flannel shirts and ripped jeans, nope just stayed an average nobody with no clique, just playing football, making easy A's and playing in a garage band with my neighborhood buddies trying to just blend into the background of everywhere while in my head I would be replaying Lithium, or In Bloom, or of course Jimi 'Hear my Train A Comin' "take this town and put it in my shoe"....

    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    this may have just been the case here in Dallas, but the only alternative/rock station is 102.1 the edge- and they played the sht out of Nirvana. I loved em until i was forced to listen to teen spirit twice a day for 10 years

    Naw, bud, it's not just in Dallas. I can't even listen to the radio these days, just for that very reason.

    Nirvana was the shit at the time. If, well, so many ifs....
