Kids these days (who listen to Nirvana) still listen to the Ramones, the Clash, Black Flag, etc. No suicides in any of those bands. But even so, those kids are (or at least, many of them that I've encountered) are a bunch of morons anyway, and who listens to a band really has nothing to do with the quality level.

Yeah, like you didn't twist my words around with my quote about Pixies and white noise.

"Forget the quotes, use your ****ing ears, listen to Nirvanas music and then Pixies music, if you think they sound the same, you are deaf."

That was your quote, "if you think they sound the same, you are deaf" sounds a lot like you're saying the bands have nothing in common.

Did you really just compare Nirvana to some of punk music's most innovative bands?

Do you think people would still worship most rock stars if they didnt die young?


What point is there to this question?

Yes. Nirvana was an innovative band. They had their influences, but it's not like the Clash, Black Flag, and the Ramones just came out of nowhere. EVERYONE has influences.

No, you suggested that Nirvana were a complete ripoff of Pixies, it dosent take a rock scientist to realise that you are wrong....I said they werent THE SAME, not that they didnt have similarities, theres a big difference.

Well other than the whole boosting the popularity of grunge, alternative and indie rock thing and being a huge influence on many indie and britpop bands thing, nothing really.

I'll concede that they boosted the popularity of Alt and Grunge, but where has Alt gone since? It's just a marketing term to sell Pop/Rock bands to teenagers now, just like it was then.

Nirvana aren't an influence on any Indie Rock bands I listen to, in fact, the only bands they seem to have influenced were crappy "Alternative" bands such as Nickelback, Hoobastank, etc. You're welcome to find an Indie band that cites Nirvana as an influence, though.

As for boosting the popularity of Indie Rock, they didn't really. Major labels have been signing indie bands for years, and Indie Rock has only recently become big, long after Nirvana's demise. And Britpop? You must be joking. Britpop came about at around the same time as Grunge, if not before it.
