    Your thoughts on 'Nevermind'

    Not happy...


    Yeah...that's the 2 words I have for this CD!

    Thanks for ending the greatest era of music ever!  The onslaught of "grunge" killed off the best music.  The 80s brought such incredible talent and songs that no other decade (or era) could match!  Beginning in the early 80s with New Wave (Duran Duran, Flock of Seagulls, Honeymoon Suite...) then pop icons (Prince, Madonna, Michael Jackson...) followed quickly by Glam Rock (GunsNRoses, Poison, Motley Crue...).  Wow...if only we could continue to live in such a great time again!  The radio would continue to churn out great songs no matter when you turned it on!  Unlike today and especially the entire 90s!  Nirvana as a band were not exactly the most musically talented band.  Then again, they didn't really need to be.  Grunge as a music form wasn't about technical prowess and didn't need to "sound good"!  Nirvana came at a time when Hard Rock ruled the airwaves with both GunsNRoses and Def Leppard.  They brought an alternative listening experience to those who didn't buy in to the rock thing.  Their music was bland and depressing which was a direct reflection of their frontman, Kurt Cobain. 


    Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen...this definitely marked the beginning of the end of good music!
