A lot of people are quick to say the Pixies, but anyone with ears knows that is f*cking stupid. They have the some structure, but the actual execution is nothing alike, at all.

The Melvins comparisons are also incredibly overstated.

Seriously, I hate people who try to discredit a band for having obvious influences.

What I find unique to Nirvana is the Sonic Youth vibe that they have. No other grunge bands really have that same vibe.

Also, the Melvins are sludge metal. Way different then anything Nirvana has made.

Something like that happened to me.. I was riffing a good song that I thought was totally original and it turned out to be a song from a band I'd never heard of.

People treat musicians as if they've heard everything out there. The truth is things can slip and people really can have the same idea twice.

I know your probaly being sarcastic, but it was a cover and Kurt Cobain says at the end "That was a David Bowie song". I know you probably being sarcastic but I'm OCD about Nirvana

The difference is that the guys in Nirvana were fans of Killing Joke and they definitely knew the song. That's not to say I think they deliberately ripped it off, sometimes you think you just came up with something cool but it's actually that you just figured out how to play a song you already know without realizing it.

I don't know bout that. I've always read that Cobain told Killing Joke they'd never heard of them, and I've also read that Killing Joke said Nirvana admitted to being fans. I'm more inclined to believe Nirvana but that's just because I'm a Nirvana-geek.

Guess we'll never know

I have a hard time believing Cobain and Grohl hadn't heard of Killing Joke.
