If you remember correctly, or even take a look back - Nirvana Pandemonium had started to die down significantly before Cobain pulled the ole trigger. Grunge was starting to pass - and I don't think Nirvana could have lasted by staying in Grunge. They would have had to switch around their style or adapt it... which isn't bad... but could they have done it?

that last song they published recently rocked, and could easily be fitted into alternative rock nowdays....so yes, they would have made some great music....but alas, it was not meant to be....

It would have been interesting to see whether or not Kurt Cobain evolved as a songwriter as he grew older and, hopefully, a bit wiser. Would he have mellowed a bit? Or perhaps become even more jaded? We'll never know.

I enjoyed a few of Nirvana songs. They were a bit past my musical prime. I'll tell you, though, when he died, it really rocked my youngest brother. Like them or not, Nirvana struck a chord deep inside a sizeable chunk of the teens of that era.

When Nirvana came along, the late 80's were petering out, musically. Dance music was subsiding from the radio, the mascara and big hair was gone, (well, just about gone).

Nirvana was like the Beatles 25 years before. Came along at a lull in music, and set the example for thousands of garage bands who, up until then, were probably stuck playing Duran Duran at house parties.

They broke up the monotony, same as the Beatles.

Now you done it, a bunch of elitist classic rock junkies will be coming your way, going crazy because you compared Nirvana to "Insert some band before 1979 here".

That's OK. They're entitled to their opinion.

To head everyone off at the pass, I'm not comparing the bands, just the situations into which they arrived on the music scene.
