I was having a friendly discussion about music with some college friends. Some random comes along while were talking about Heavy metal and says people in metal bands have know talent. so i ask him if he plays a insturment of course he says no then i ask him if he knew how to construt music he said no again so i procceded to lay into him about his noobery. But after all that he said bands like plain white t shirts and nirvana were some of the best band in music history so we got in left him.

first of all...learn English, your grammar is SH/IT

second of all, Kurt Cobain WAS a mediocre guitarist, and it was GRUNGE it was supposed to be simple

third of all, he was a GODLY lyricist

fourth of all, he had Chronic Bronchitis which fuc/ked up his throat and screwed up his singing voice

fifth of all, he had a disease that caused constant terrible pain in his stomach, and heroine was the only thing that made the pain go away

Damn. A douchebag like you is in college?

Why don't you take your music "Constructing skills" and be famous like Kurt Cobain?

i didnt like nirvanas music that much, but they are not terrible. they took extremely simple songs and made it sound good, which in some cases is better than making extremely complex stuff. they also were one of the bands to stop the trend of hair metal.

I feel bad looking at porn simply because of the ol' story that a lot of those girls were molested as children, But I've never heard of midgets being molested, so it doesn't matter to me anymore, as that's the only kind of porn I watch.

This.

Metal isn't exactly my style of music, I'm more of a Zeppelin, AC/DC, Aerosmith kinda guy, but I respect shredders for their skill and speed, and I go to metal concerts all the time, 'cause I like to see other musicians. I'm not a hater.

If you can say this about music then you have no place to complain about the negative things people say about the music you like

Idiot

Cobain was a businessman. His music was all about being simple.
And heavy metal is IN GENERAL an easy genre. Still there are always some people who are better at it than others (from nature). I believe that's what you could consider talent (cause talent is really hard to discuss. What is it??? :s).

I don't get the Nirvana thing in this discussion though. The fact that a Grunge band had many success and many fans doesn't mean that heavy metal is good or bad or whatever? :s. You guys could have as well said "oh yea? well your momma's fat so heavy metal sucks".

My opinion: in every single thing if there are many people doing it, talent is going to seperate potentially better and potentially worse ones. The structure, difficulty,... of whatever you're talking about is a whole different discussion that you don't really wanna start. Even if you defend an argumentation there and EVEN if you might be right, you're never going to be aknowlaged to be right on that matter. Eventually 90% of those discussions turn out pointless
