One of my favorite albums! Although I am a fan and music lover of English rock of the 60s and 70s. But it was this composition that I played on the air in the mid-90s in the mornings in Saratov, so that the city woke up. I then worked as a DJ on Radio C!

I'll make sure to listen to it today...I remember exactly where I was the first time I heard it.


Today, Dave Grohl is one of my favourite musicians and I love The Foo Fighters.
They opened up Madison Square gardens after the covid thing, what an amazing show!!

I have too many tunes I like by them so I'll just point out a cover tune they did that I love...Dave Grohl screws up and drops a stick...you have to look for it though because he covers it up quickly on the fly.

What a great way to wake up !

This is a pure drive)))
But my idols are Pink Floyd, Uriah Heep and Deep Purple. Sorry))

By the way, I met John Lawton in Saratov during his 2012 tour in Russia. Our communication was filmed by a local TV channel and broadcast. I know. that Lawton is a late Uriah Heep, but I was high)))

I think people forget what a great drummer Dave Grohl is , first time I heard Teen Spirit the drum track blew me away.

Got to agree on the favourite musicians front too , the guy seems real and without pretension ... No 1 "would love to have a beer with" guy.

I read that the MTV Unplugged show, they wanted them to play more songs but they didn't have anymore songs because they were such a young band. That was all they had. The MTV Unplugged show was huge at the time.

The sad part about not only Nirvana, but that entire genre of music is almost all of them sold out and gave into corporations. They basically turned into what they preached against. Even Pearl Jam. Many of them are onboard with extreme left corp crony politics, censoring, banning people, forced vaccinations with experimental drugs...meh.

I can no longer listen to their music anymore.

I was never really a fan of nirvana but they are undoubtedly one of the most influential bands on an entire generation of other bands.

I was just hitting my rebelious teenager phase when Nevermind came out.
I can somehow still remember getting wasted and rocking out to the album on my 16th birday while bunking school with some mates.
Great Album.

I think if they would have kept going, Pat Smear joining them would have only made them better.

Dave Grohl's other project he did was something I only found recently and his drumming is unbelievable!
Jon Paul Jones from Led Zepplin is on bass.

Unfortunately, Kurt Cobain did not escape the tragedy of the musicians "27 years old". But Courtney Love turned out to be a rare bitch (((

Even IF that were true, they could've just played more Meat Puppets' songs. They didn't really play that many of their own songs at that show though. They had many more they could've played.

I've often wondered if Kurt realized just how fkn awesome that Unplugged performance/cd was/is.

I'm more of a hip hop / r&b guy, but instantly liked Nirvana when they came out. Just loved the guitar and Kurt's voice even though I couldn't understand a damn thing he was saying. Just a great vocal tone and rides the beat and guitar well. Very unique.

It is such a shame that some of the best musicians are druggies / depressed....

It was about 2.5 weeks earlier that i heard Negative Creep (from Bleach) after my buddy called the college radio station to play it!!

We had been listening to Seattle bands as the local coffee guru was making money hand over fist and was bringing up bands about once a month (saw a bunch of second tier bands like L7, gashuffer, Sweat Water (until Blackhappy, they were the biggest name), Hammerbox, Blackhappy, and some band called The Gits!!

Seattle was blowing up! We were moshing to Blood Circus, Skerik, and others, all while praying that the conquerors would bless our happy family!

A few weeks later, Mia was mudered, and things began to spiral. I bought a photo flame Fender Jaguar the day they found Kurdt… that is that guitar’s name!!



The scene ended. We grew up. Some of our friends ODed. But that moment is wonderfully captured in Live from The Paramount!!

It is true according to the producer of the show. I watched a documentary on it years ago. Believe what you want...he asked them to play more and they said they did not have anymore songs to play, at least not acoustic any way and as you stated, some of the songs they played were Meat Puppets and David Bowie. They didn't have a lot of material like a Eric Clapton.

The cover songs on Unplugged, are my favourites, the whole performance is good, but those covers!.

The 1st time I heard SLTS, I knew right away, whoever this was, gonna blow up big.

I loved Sweat Water, underrated I think. I still play the sh#t out of the 1st album.

I thought Nirvana were quite good....but I never really bought into their 'greatness' - I know I'm probably in a minority here.

Really good album with some excellent tracks on it.
But comparable to The Bollocks album, or The Stone Roses or The Clash albums or even Inflammable Material?
Not in my book.

Definitely very influential.
