a thought came to me the other day and im not really sure how i feel about it. do you think Nirvana paved the way for alot of the emo bands that we have today? it kinda makes sense when you think about it but im not totally sure if im convinced.

thoughts?

Always better to be safe than sorry.
But I guess kinda seeing that the kids saw Kurt being all depressed and shooting himself then thought "Hey, I can be depressed too". Still working on the shooting themselves bit though.

How d'you figure?


besides the band image factor and similar themes and musical styling, Kurt Cobain strikes me as being very similar to someone like Gerard Way. Emo almost seems like an updated version of Nirvana (if that makes any sense). They both kinda hold the same place in society, like they both have the same fan base.

does that make any sense?

I've never heard a modern emo band. I'll have to check those out.

Rites of Spring paved the way.
But the sad thing is over half of the "emos" have never heard of them or listened to them.

Emo bands nowadays hold the same fan base as many "indie" and hardcore fans. You won't find many scene kids listening to RoS, Yaphet Kotto, and A Case of Grenada.

Well, I don't really care for Nirvana, or any emo music for that matter.. Irony is, I kind of am emo.. Cutting and all, though that hasn't happened for about three months now. I don't get why people hate it, but I don't get why people like it.
I hate people. Especially black people.

those are just scene kids. no relation to emo except from the media.
#21
No they didn't. They paved the way for alternative music. Most of these "emo" bands aren't emo, they are alternative. Like My Chemical Romance. But I don't keep up with newer music, so I don't really know what I'm talking about. All I know is when I think of emo I think of a genre that died a long time ago and what is left of it is not popular nor is it even real emo. Just like post-grunge isn't real grunge.

Besides the fact that the word "emo" has become so fluid nowadays that I can't even define it, I would say yeah, Nirvana has had some influences on the "scene". Obviously the musical aspect is the emotional lyrics and vocals. In the sense of band image I would say Cobain did seem "emo" in his tortured, suffering Christ figure image. Kurt Cobain was emo. Kill me now.

Well they are similar in level of guitar talent. They both ***** out the power chords and play mediocre ten-second eighth-note solos. The difference is that Nirvana's drummer was actually decent where most emo drummers suck the big sack, and that Kurt Cocaine's lyrics were mostly indecipherable nonsense where most emo lyrics are an annoying shitfest of high-school level poetry that barely rhymes. The main things Nirvana has in common with emo is that they both suck balls and nobody important cares about them.
