now i wasn't even into music when Nirvana's 'explosion' hit the mainstream, i got into them round about 1995, but i think everyone talks bollocks.
MTV and magazines love to romanticise the past:
e.g. Jimi Hendrix (didn't people start riots cos they thought his new tunes were shit?)
what exactly did Nirvana's 'explosion' achieve
it got upper class kids to listen to and make watered down rock music.
bands like sum 41 are no different to 80's rock, it's all about gimmicks and marketing.
tons of quality rock, metal, punk, exciting bands were around before MTV decided to create this hype around Kurt Cobain:
but of course these bands owe everything to Kurt Cobain don't they? yeah right!
what's my point? fuck knows.
i'm gonna lie down.
