I guess that's what you have to talk about in this section.


His ex-wife Courtney Love has a recurring role on the hit show Empire on Fox, but no one around here watches that. Too "urban".

The great thing about birthdays, RPB, is that it seems as though every day someone is celebrating one (Bob Brenly).



Empire is breaking ratings records, so someone is watching. They don't need to show all those ads anymore.

So it's good?

Does it closely resemble any real life stories?

you know what sucks? back in the day i went to the record breakers on algonquin rd and bought two $30/each nirvana live bootlegs and i was like "whoa cool" as a 14 year old.

then this chick krystal, you know the kind of chick who used to hang out at clark and belmont handing out flyers about how/why courtney love killed kurt cobain, asked me if she could borrow the CDs to make tapedubs of them before she went off to college.

suffice to say, i never got the CDs back. i did find her on facebook a year or two ago and i gave her a piece of my mind... and she claimed, OH LOL GET THIS, that actually see she's not the krystal [name] that i know but moreover krystal's brother married a chick named krystal, so HA you know the joke's really on me..... again.

whatever. unlike her on behest of kurt, i got my justice. "me and you rappers got one common thread / we both speak the language so you know what i said" - aceyalone offa serve and protect

My bad. Didn't see anyone start a thread about it, and since the ratings are so good I figure I'd see one by now.

Jimi was not known as a singer. In fact, he hated his voice and would often suffer from stage fright simply because he had to sing.

i'll take "people whose lives peaked in 1985-1990 for $500, alex" =P

seriously tho, nirvana themselves didn't have anything to do with the end of cock/hair metal or whatever great loss we're bemoaning (aside from our 30s =) i mean, if anything they were used by a media system/machine that just shifted gears cuz don't forget that rap/hiphop was drastically changing its pop music MO at the same time, so paradigm shifts were afoot on more than one level here.

if you really think nirvana were a bunch of masterminds who destroyed "your" music i'd implore you to read this old fanzine article that chicago punk rock icon (somewhere JORR just felt a strange chill run down his spine =) ben weasel wrote about the time he got to interview nirvana during a show @ the good ol brawlroom (aragon). i always got the impression that nirvana themselves, especially kurt, were pretty damn shocked that things worked out the way they did.... hell the big rumor right after kurt died was that nirvana was gonna break up if he didnt die, so insert your conspiracy theories here.


now about nirvana specifically during that time period, coming out of the 80s with all the hair/cock rock and whatnot, in a word rock and roll was decadence. you knew these lead singers had a few VDs, a coke habit, and all kinds of stupid excess that they flaunted in such a way that probably got rappers to step up their excess game (don't forget that even rakim Himself (as many call him "The God MC" or some shit like that) wore a big thick gold rope around his neck on albums named things like "PAID IN FULL") and rah rah rah blah blah blah. even if your cockrock guys were straightup junkies it was still life of the party junkies, not sad miserable existentialist "don't mind me i'm just being elliot smith over here" junkies.

and kurt was more of that type of junkie. i think a lot of kids could relate to teh kid who got picked on eventually writing these personal songs that didn't come off as pretentious and glam as the 80s stuff, and furtyhermore the songs felt like they came from a somewhat genuine place. yeah kurt cobain was arguably the biggest rock star in the world at one point.... but read that article i linked about him at the height of nirvana-mania... he never really acted that way. and i think a lot of kids saw something in that and appreciated it for what it (supposedly) was, especially when you compare it to the heavily manufactured decadence of assembly line cockrock..

but overall big picture the average rock music on the radio went from "HEY I'M AN AWESOME WHITE GUY WHO'S GONNA FUCK YOU TONIGHT, GIRL" to "i'm a pretty crappy white guy with some reala problems who's gonna say 'fuck you, girl' tonight" so i can see why people got pissed. it just wasn't nirvana's fault unless you fault them for being pretty authentic to what they purported to be, and the music media empire/s decided to use them as the flagship of an armada of "grunge" to change up the average rock song on the radio., that decision was made way above their paygrade and they were all pretty much just pawns in a game played by giant monolothic corporations who were evolving their product on multiple fronts to stay "young hip and relevant"

The Unplugged album is still great to this day. I don't play their studio albums much, but will listen to some of their live stuff from time to time. Their Live At Reading release is SOLID.

Rarely done by me...but fits perfect

Talking Seattle Grunge Rock Blues
Song by Todd Snider


Hey, hey, my, my
Rock and roll will never die
Hang your hair down in your eye
You'll make a million dollars

Well I was in this band goin' nowhere fast
We sent out demos but everybody passed
So one day we finally took the plunge
Moved out to Seattle to play some grunge
Washington state that is
Space needle
Eddie vedder
Itchiooooo Suzuki

Now to fit in fast we wear flannel shirts
We turn our amps up until it hurts
We've got bad attitudes and what's more
When we play we stare straight down at the floor
Wowee
Pretty scary
How pensive
How totally alternative

Now to fit in on the Seattle scene
You've gotta do somethin' they ain't never seen
So thinkin' up a gimmick one day
We decided to be the only band that wouldn't play a note
Under any circumstances
Silence
Music's original alternative
Root's grunge

Well we spread the word through the underground
That we were the hottest new thing in town
The record guy came out to see us one day
And just like always we didn't play
It knocked him out
He said he loved our work
He said he loved our work but he wasn't sure if he could sell a record
With nothing on it
I said tell 'em we're from Seattle
He advanced us two and a half million dollars

Hey, hey, my, my
Rock and roll will never die
Hang your hair down in your eye
You'll make a million dollars

Well they made us do a video but that wasn't tough
'cause we just filmed ourselves smashin' stuff
It was kinda weird 'cause there was no music
But MTV said they'd love to use it

The kids went wild, the kids went nuts
Rolling stone gave us a five-star review said we played with guts
We're scorin' chicks, takin' drugs
Then we got asked to play MTV unplugged
You should have seen it
We went right out there and refused to do acoustical versions of the
Electrical songs we had refused to record in the first place
Then we smashed our shit

Well we blew 'em away at the Grammy's show
By refusing to play and refusing to go
And then just when we thought fame would last forever
Along come this band that wasn't even together
Now that's alternative
Now that's alternative to alternative
I feel stupid
And contagious

Well our band got dropped and that ain't funny
'cause we're all hooked on drugs but we're outta money
So the other day I called up the band
I said boys I've taken all I can
Shave off your goatees
Pack the van
We're goin' back to Athens


Listen away
