Image over music
 
even bands who had 'no image' had an image. not having an image was their image.

Kurt Cobains ripped jeans and flannel shirt was as much of a costume as anything Gene Simmons wears.
I don't say this to diss Kurt, as I am a fan of his music, but too many of his fans think there was no image or no fame seeking involved on their part, when they carefully crafted an image and sold it just like every other successful band.

So many people say Kurt didnt want to be famous and hated the whole idea. Ya, some guy from geffen threw a dart on map and then knocked on Kurt's door in Aberdeen and said we picked YOU!!!! Get real. Kurt studied it and made his move and worked HIS ASS OFF to get famous. He wanted the fame then acted like he never wanted it, which is a total lie - he worked way to hard in an attempt to get fame for that to have one iota of truth to it. And that is basically the image he crafted for himself. The ripped jeans and flannell were everybit a costume as anything KISS wears.

.....interesting.

Perhaps he just wore the clothes his mother bought for him.

Golly gee, a KISS fan lecturing us about bands that favour image over music. :rolleyes:

And pretty much everyone in the grunge scene dressed the way Cobain did, before Nirvana were even around, they wore cheap blue jeans and flannel as a rejection against expensive and trendy clothes.

not to be antagonistic, but what's your point? everyone sends out an image when they choose what kind of clothes to wear, what their hair is gonna look like, etc. etc. It's not a bad thing it's just a fact of life, people judge people on looks, so it's inevitable that someone will be percieved in a certain way based on appearance.

I wore cheap blue jeans and flannel long before grunge came around.

Do you think they got their image from me? I highly doubt it too.:)

His point is hes trying to piss off certain people, because hes angry over the Kiss/Green Day threads.

No, the point is, Kurt's ripped jeans and flannel shirt was every bit the costume as anything KISS wore.
