It's hard to believe it's been over twenty years now since we lost Kurt. I was going to post this a few weeks ago, but I didn't want to be a "downer" just before Mother's day.

 

This is one of my personal favorites, and I've included it here, to share with others how there was "something in the way" that Kurt could transform something so melancholy, into something so beautiful.

 

 

 

Kurt Cobain, February 20, 1967 – c. April 5, 1994

You left us way too soon, Kurt.

You're welcome.

And I must confess, I was bit older, tho. It's kind of a 'generational thing'. Some of us had Kennedy, and many of us still remember where we were, when we first heard the news about Kurt's death.

It was a very sad day for me...and I remember it well....

 

*And to those that don't know who Kurt Cobain is...?

:facepalm:....Never forget your legends.

Cobain wasn't a legend.  He was just a good musician who, unfortunately, had issues that led to a sad ending.

Ya, I noticed that lately....and it seems a bit hypocritical. They should all have to correctly answer a 'pop quiz' before wearing those T-shirts. And if they can't answer, then they shouldn't be wearing them.

Who're you supposed to be, judging them for wearing something they do not know? My sister owns a Nirvana Tee, and she doesnt listen to Nirvana music. Just because you dont know about something, it means nothing in the world of Fashion. Seriously.

Not necessarily true.

He founded Nirvana, which due to its success among the teenagers of that generation, opened up the doors for bands like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, STP, the compilation of Mother Love Bone and later the Foo Fighters and other alternative rock/grunge bands to get into the main stream.

 

Not to mention Nirvana is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as of this year.

 

I would consider all that pretty legendary.

See... not a legend...just a fashion. Actually, just a guy who was super lucky to have the world on a string, but not smart enough to embrace it instead of blowing his brains out while in a drug addled haze.

*And to those that don't know who Kurt Cobain is...?

:facepalm:....Never forget your legends.

 

 

Back in the late 80's (before the release of Bleach 1989, just about the time they had settled on Chad Channing) I was living in the Seattle/Tacoma area.  One Friday night, I went with some fellow Air Force friends to Seattle to a night club that had various bands play.  At that time it was Pier 70 (same place that MTV used to shot the "Real World" in later years).  We were fairly well intoxicated having a good time, when a band came on stage began to play.  This lead singer with very long Blonde hair was playing a punk, good rocking song that was full of energy.

 

I ask my friend at the moment, "who are these guys?"  He said, "I think they call themselves  Nirvana...."  I said really?

 

Well about 2 years later I'm driving down the highway living in on the East Coast, I hear "Teen Spirit" for the first time.  Then the radio announcer says, "That's a new sound out of Seattle, called Nirvana. 

 

It was only then that I realized that I saw Nirvana before anyone even really knew who they were at that time.

 

I was Hooked then for sure.

 

Got all of their music, and have always enjoyed listening to Nirvana.

 

Kurt stood against the system, he rebelled against the establishment, and the decay that had stagnated some of the music scene at that time.  They landed at the right moment at the right place and time.  The music scene at that time in Seattle when I was there was a caldron of "molecular elements" backing into the Alternative Grunge scene, and it was a great memory and time, place, and moment to be.

 

We miss ya, Kurt.

I dont give a damn about your fantasies. What you said was blatantly stupid. People have the right to choose what they wear in Real Life. You dont make someone wear something, this isnt a place where everything's decided for you. I respect the singer, but I dont respect you.

While you're right, most of the time when I wear a graphic tee I wear ones that portray something I have an interest in. Hence, I have shirts for certain bands, movies, and games. It lets others know that you have an interest in it and creates the opportunity to talk or relate over it if they have the same interest. Wearing clothes that support something you have no interest/knowledge just because you like it is mildly shallow and highly misleading. Case in point, I tried hitting on a cute girl once because she was wearing a Star Wars shirt, only to discover she not only hadn't watched any of them, but didn't even want to.
