I'm of that generation (and have always had very wide ranging musical tastes), and I always thought they were truly garbage. Kobain himself seems to have been as unpleasant a character as you could ever hope not to meet.

They don't say very much about musical ability, either...

Generally with music if I don't like it I just ignore it - but Nirvana spread (at best) a nasty depressive/agressive/hopeless attitude amongst an emotionally unstable and immature agegroup and caused real harm IME.

Mudhoney has been played extensively in t'shop this morning. Anyway one thing most people will agree on is that in the main, british music goes to the toilet over pretty much everything else.

Ajm, you're talking out of your bum. That's like saying punk spawed political and social unrest.

How about if use the 'name that shall remain unspoken' and put it in the previous sentence along with the words 'pyre' and 'sizzling'...would that be better?

Have a listen to this:

An impressionist of a dead star singing a dead stars song.

Can it get any better?

Saw these in the summer after being given a free ticket and thought they put on a great show.

Much prefer to see them again then the Nirvana 'reunion'.
