They are in my opinion.

exactly. so why is it shocking that another newer pop act has elements that sound like another pop act from the past?

i made the comment so the OP might clue into the fact that nirvana is not some infallible group.

it's not like nirvana didn't poke fun at the coincidence. i used to have an mp3 of them doing a sloppy version of the chorus to 'more than a feeling' with cobain stifling laughter between the lines before kicking into SLTS.

I'd be happy if pink just used a bit of Nirvanas music but used her own artistic tools to make her own unique version. Otherwise she should give them credit. I wander if Dave Grohl ever picks it up...
Except for The Residents and maybe Silver Apples.

OK check this out. Nirvanas song 'come as you are' sounds like a combination of killing jokes "riff" from 'eighties' and pixies tempo or rythm in their song 'here comes your man'. What do you think?

agreed.

anything you'd consider as intelligent really doesn't mean shit to me, especially since you think the smashing pumpkins are the best band to come out of Chicago.
