I actually love this band. Cobain because he has great taste (Anyone who likes Neil Young and John Lennon are good by me.), Grohl because he seems to like McCartney quite a bit, and because he is a good drummer, and Novoselic for his bass work. Certainly the masters of the 90's, and Cobain's death raises the question of what if?

I really like Nirvana as well. I thought Nevermind was a brilliant album. Tragedy about Kurt. God only knows what life would have been like if he hadn't had died and was still around today.

I am a fan of Dave and the things he works on. He seems like an amazing guy to work with and be around. He's a fan of music which counts for a lot.

I love Nirvana.  They are runner up favorite band.  They were favorite for about 5 years before I discovered The Beatles.  All three of their studio albums are amazing.  I love how Kurt expresses just raw emotion in so many of his songs.  Dave Grohl is also an amazing drummer as previously mentioned, and the Foo Fighters are not bad at all either.

 

Kurt wrote About a Girl after listening to Meet The Beatles over and over.

I like Nirvana, but dislike Foo Fighters. "Lithium" is my favorite song from them ( Nirvana, that is).

I didn't know that. About a Girl, the unplugged version, is one of my favorite Nirvana songs.

Here's where I get to do my music-snob one-upmanship thing and say that I was into Nirvana even before Nevermind! And passed up a chance to see 'em in Toronto in '91 because I actually found Nevermind (which I bought the week it was released) to be (at first) a disappointment compared to the debut. So I went and saw their buddies Mudhoney instead. But Nevermind grew on me, and I played it more and more as "Teen Spirit" became a hit and climbed the charts - even though I had to read about its hit status in the music magazines 'cause I never listened to the radio or watched videos. And of course I eventually preferred Nevermind to the debut, and In Utero to Nevermind, although I switch back-and-forth on that. And naturally, regretted not seeing Nirvana that one time ever since.

I've never much cared for what Foo Fighters I've heard.

How the hell does a mid 20's Torontonian get a copy of Bleach in 1989/1990?

He's vonbontee. He has the Music Force. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

(after hours of searching I have finally found it... finally...)

Wow. The last post was nearly 3 years old, and since I like Nirvana, imma wake this up.

My Nirvana favorites are Sliver, Breed, Spank Thru, Come as You Are, and You Know You're Right.

Yeah, they are really a great band! In addition to your tracks I also like Polly, Lithium, Heart-Shaped Box and, above everything, Where did you sleep last night. The last one is so intense in the end I'm always left as a sobbing mess.

Let me tell you younguns about these wonderful places that used to exist called "record (and CD!) (and cassette!) stores"! I bought it at a place called the Record Peddlar that had all the cool imports, although I didn't like going there much because this one guy behind the counter was kind of assholish.

If we are comparing to similar artists, Jane's Addiction is my preference, but to be honest I have listened to no more than five grunge albums.

The dancer in Live At Reading is actually Antony Hodgkinson, a British session drummer. Wikipedia even listed him in the personnel!
