I don’t get all the hate for Nirvana and Kurt’s guitar playing… why?

Whenever Nirvana is mentioned anywhere on the internet, it doesn’t matter where, then chances are you’re going to see a mixed reaction. You’ll see all kinds of hate and love for the band. You’ll see a bunch of people criticizing the band quite a lot. Talking shit about Kurt’s singing and guitar playing.

I’ve been a loyal Nirvana fan for years and still am. My love for them hasn’t stopped. Sure Kurt’s guitar playing was kind of sloppy and mostly basic stuff but still, he was pretty amazing at what he did. He still wrote some pretty fucking tight songs. When you’re a musician, you don’t need to be a perfectionist to write killer rock songs.

In the video footage above which I’ve just seen for the first time, all that is proof that Kurt was very talented. You don’t need to be a technical guitar player to write killer rock songs. It’s about playing guitar with feeling and that’s what Kurt did.

Before Nirvana became famous, Nirvana were pretty much nothing when they first started out. They were just three young kids playing at Krist’s mothers house and as you can see in the videos above, their audience was just a couple of their drunk friends. This video footage proves that Nirvana came a long way. They went from playing in a small room in a house to playing huge arena shows.

It seems that Nirvana already had the songs “About a Girl” and “School” from the very beginning. Look at that video above. Even though they’re just playing in a small room at Krist’s Mom’s house, they still pretend they’re playing at Madison Square Garden or something. In that video you can tell they love doing it by the way they play. Playing with energy. That’s how a rock band should play.

I freakin’ love Nirvana and if I ever form a rock band of my own, we’re definitely gonna be covering some Nirvana songs just for fun.
