Today would have been Kurt’s 47th birthday. Yes, I’m loyal to Nirvana. Always have been since my high school years. During high school, I would go home turn on the TV and watch MTV hoping any Nirvana videos would come on. Then I bought the CD “Nevermind” and I remembered listening to it over and over. I loved that record “Nevermind” back then and still love it now. That’s an album I’ll never get tired of loving. “In Utero” was amazing as well. All of their records are great even, “MTV Unplugged in New York”.
Nirvana have gotten a lot of criticism over the years. People thought Kurt was a talent-less songwriter and they thought Nirvana was a crappy band but I disagree. The haters also think Nirvana destroyed rock music and I disagree with that too. Nirvana was a huge part of changing rock and punk music forever. I’ve also always believed that Kurt was murdered, he didn’t kill himself.
I don’t care what the haters and doubters think of Nirvana, they were an amazing band. I thought this band were amazing live performers too. They put on the best shows. Just three guys rockin’ on stage and being tight as hell! I thought “Live at Reading” was one of their best performances other than their MTV Unplugged show. Kurt was a talented man. Their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction is totally deserving. I wish Kurt was still alive so he can see himself get inducted into the Hall of Fame ’cause I’m positive he would be all for it.
Nirvana was the greatest. They were my heroes in my teenage years. I’ve always been obsessed with the band. Someday I’ll put together a Nirvana tribute video of me covering their songs. Maybe Kurt’s upcoming anniversary death???
Love Nirvana or hate ‘em, they were an important part of music history and they have a special legacy.
Check out this article where Kurt’s hometown of Aberdeen paid tribute to Kurt which is pretty cool!
It’s unfair that Nirvana gets so much negative criticism. No matter what anybody says, I’ll always stay loyal to Nirvana just like I do with Metallica. Kurt maybe gone but his legacy is never going away.
