Nirvana Thread

Since I couldn't find a Nirvana thread, I thought I'd make one.

Nirvana is one of my favorite bands ever. They changed the music industry forever. They helped to create the best style of music(in my oppinion) grunge. Kurt Cobain is one of the best guitarist/singer/song writers ever. Dave Grohl is one of the best too. Krist, plays bass, which is easy, so there is no "best"

OP, as much as I like nirvana: please make like Kurt and have your wife kill you.

As others have said, you either are a complete idiot or a failure of a troll.

It's a she. She is 16. That is all.


Nirvana is overrated. And, no, I'm trolling this time. I like Nirvana occasionally, but they're not as great as people say. Neither are the Foo Fighters or Dave Grohl.

TS is right, Kurt was a great songwriter.
But he wasn't "the best" guitarist.
I personally think some songs could really use a (better) solo.

And is NIRVANA overrated? Maybe. But that's thanks to all the anoying teenage 'fans' who only know Smells like Teen Spirit and think they are hardcore. Kurt never wanted to be succesfull in the pop music industry. He wanted to start a band and make the music he loved.

So tell my again, why is this tread a bad idea? I've seen more treads for grunge/punk bands on UG.

Since I'm feeling like I've been a little harsh. I'm going to be civil and break down what is wrong with the OP without being a dick

It's in the Modern Rock forum. Use the search function next time:

How exactly? They were a independent band that then hit major label success... the Beatles did that in the 60's.

Writing songs you like does not make them the best at what they do. If you want to have an opinion taken seriously then you need to back it up with something.

Liking something and something being great are two incredibly different things. A useful thing to learn if you're gonna take music seriously. Liking something doesn't have to be justified, something being great has to be explained.

As a Bass Player I am incredibly offended, I COULD go into a large essay about why you are wrong, but it'll be easier if I post some youtube links.







Bass is as simple as you make it. Just because Nirvana was mostly about Kurts ego (he refused to tune his guitar and made Kris tune to him for example) and not about good bass lines, doesn't mean that bass is an easy instrument.

Where did you get that information about how they tuned?
I've never heard that before.

His playing out of tune on purpose is well documented. If you try playing a long to a lot of the tracks you'll find that any kind of common tuning wont sound right.

But for what reason? For his ego or to make the music sound "original''?
I personally don't believe he did it just to piss of Krist.

That's true. I've actually tried it once.

In part it was because he refused to buy good guitars and then beat the crap out of his cheap janky guitars that went out of tune easily.

I guess I was missing out a lot of the steps. It was because of his personal views on capitalism that meant he was always out of tune meaning that the bass player was always having to look out for the tuning. Not the other way around.

It just seems petty to me.

There are also lots of rumours that he did it on purpose because he hated his fans though.

In an intervieuw kurt said he bought chinese fake stratocasters because they have a thinner neck.

Indead he did not like his fans very much.



If you look at 4:22, you'll see he's totally mocking his fans for yelling after he smashed his guitar.

But do you think the fans would even bother the tuning if it sounds OK?
