I like the Wipers quite a bit - one of my band's older songs was obviously influenced by them, even - but the way some people I know go on about them like they were the second coming of old time religion itself is just weird to me.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

"Accidentally in Love" by Counting Crows is, discounting the performance and production, a good pop song.

Hee Haw and Prayers on Fire are both much better than Junkyard.

idk if the songs are that much better, but i agree that Junkyard sounds kinda off. but those songs in the Peel sessions or live lp sound incredible

The 90's are our parents 60's and you're just going to have to deal with that.

What does this mean? Surely the 60's were our parents 60's? Do you mean that the 90's are to us what the 60's were to our parents? God I hope not.

My parents are in their 60's, does that mean I'm actually in my 90's?

Am I going to die soon?

I'm saying a lot of people my age (around 40) talk about the 90s the same way my parents talked about the 60s when they were about 40 and a lot of people who are around 15-20 talk about the 90s (Nirvana, Pavement, Pixies) the same way I talked about the 60s (Young, Dylan, Hendrix) when I was that age.

maybe middle age makes you miss the freedom of your youth when you look fondly on that decade in life, but it especially might bring you back to feeling 18 when millenials all walk around wearing the more popular great bands from when you were 18 like little time capsule pirate hoes.

I had an interesting thought about that, and how Boomer-centric our culture really is. Let me elaborate:

In 1991, Nevermind was new. Today, Nevermind is 26. In 1991, music that was 26 years old played on the oldies stations. Today, songs from Nevermind make it onto classic rock stations, but still play on current rock radio. What plays on the oldies stations? The music that the Boomers' parents listened to, or, perhaps, what the Boomers listened to when they were children. What radio considers "contemporary," "classic," or "old" is defined almost solely through the point-of-view of the Boomers. Therefore, the names mean nothing, they simply indicate some nebulous combination of genre and year range.

And yet, despite the fact that the Boomers have done a good job of making time appear "frozen" to the observer of American nomenclature (god save their vanity), Nirvana is still "old people music" to the current generation of young adults. The way that most of the twentysomethings I interact with at school react to Nevermind is almost the exact same as I did when I was a kid and someone put on Roy Orbison or Buddy Holly or Elvis. "Hey, this is kind of neat, I guess my parents had cool music after all." And yet we don't consider Nirvana an "oldies" band, even though, by a consistent set of standards, we well ought to. Bleach came out almost 30 years ago. But to the Baby Boomer, Nirvana is that "new noisy music that put an end to the good 80s tuuuuueeeeeennnns." And they continue to maintain a strangle hold on American culture. My favourite moment in Star Trek 13 was when they referred to the Beastie Boys as "classical," much the way we refer to the popular orchestral music produced before the dawn of the 20th century today. "Classical" wasn't called "classical" in Mozart's time (granted, a lot of what the average idiot calls "classical" is baroque or romantic anyway). They acknowledged that culture is always moving forward, and that, eventually, even our Boomer-centric view of older music will die... but it hasn't happened yet.

The Hullabalooza episode of the Simpsons has so much extra unintentional irony now that it's a whole generation out of date.

sitwell, total_douche: Hm, that's interesting. I don't know much about what the tweens think of them, but I think of Nirvana very much like "young people's music". And I am a millennial, albeit in the upper year range. It might be different in the States.

Saw a group of 18 year olds or so in a record store a month ago, and one of the girls said "guys, I miss Kurt Cobain." That he died before she was born didn't phase her.

Nirvana are still revered among the youth, I guess there must be a real fire in his voice.

They only looked through the hip hop section before leaving, which made it even better.


None of this is a judgment, btw. I've paid beaucoup this year to see artists who are well over a decade out of their prime. My indie confession is that the most expensive ticket was also the worst by a mile - At The Drive-In.
Kerouacian as fuck.

I dunno, speaking anecdotally I have two teenage kids who discovered Nirvana with no prompting from me and were able to read pretty quickly into the songs' meanings. The songs stirred something in them that I haven't been able to, about things I want them to be passionate about, so I count that as a positive. Plus the kids think the stuff I actually listen to for nostalgia is too weird, so it's not like I'm gonna score any breakthroughs by starting them with the Jesus Lizard.
