A Terrifying Thought:

Some day, and some day soon, Nirvana will be considered "Dad Rock".

I was like 1 when Cobain died, but this thought still strikes me as a little mortifying.

Comments

  • Cobain would be 50 this year.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    I mean, my dad was super into grunge when I was a kid, so it's already "dad rock" to me, and I'm OK with that? I once jammed out to "Endless, Nameless" with my mom, too.
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Eddie Vedder and his sub-par Jim Morrison impression of a voice were always dadrock /grump

    (I get why people like Pearl Jam, but I just can't at all)
  • I've listened to dadrock since forever, but my dad never did, as far as I can tell
  • How does she do that?
    Nirvana gets played on classic rock stations already.

    the whole shit with "dadrock" is so irritating to me

    it's like what qualities people assign to music is more important than its own merits
  • I think it's pretty stupid too.
  • remember, a believing heart is your magic

    my mom liked some classic rock (i.e. whatever they were playing on the Huntington stations in 1973-1974 or so), but for the most part I grew up on '70s MOR (with sunshine pop, R&B and early disco as needed) and '80s Top 40.

    It's overcorrecting to not be the guy on youtube going "I'm the ONLY kid in my class to listen to Bob Seger and Starland Vocal Band"
  • she sounds like smoke and honey. we cannot move. it's too beautiful
    I was the only kid in my class to listen to Arthur Brown and Comus
  • The world that we used to know, people tell me it don't turn no more
    I was the only kid in class who listened to Peter Brotzmann

    everyone else thought he sounded like a dying dolphin
  • Smells Like Teen Spirit is the only song of theirs I like.

    Well, if it makes you feel better, that was not my intent. I was just pointing out that the people who were in their teens and early 20s when Nirvana was big are now old enough to have children in their teens.

    It was more an observation on how time has passed than any form of qualitative judgment.

    (Also, my first exposure to Nirvana as a kid was through the local classic rock station, which is mostly that in name because it plays a fair amount of contemporary rock)
