Whatchoo Listenin To?

Recommended Posts

Watched the Kurt Cobain documentary on HBO, Cobain: Montage of Heck today. It was great, a little too personal but great. Debunked the myth of the messiah, which I never saw him as because I got why he hated that in the first place. It's supposed to be about the music maaaayne~

 

I was a huge fan of Nirvana in high school for the obvious cliche reason, and it was an outlet. It got me listening to Nirvana songs again for old time's sake.

 

Anyways, here's Nirvana.

 

Nirvana - Jesus Don't Want me for a Sunbeam (Vaselines Cover)

https://youtu.be/KdVXPADC70U

 

Nirvana - Sliver

https://youtu.be/QECJ9pCyhns

 

Nirvana - Come as You Are

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vabnZ9-ex7o

 

Nirvana - You Know You're Right

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv96yJYhk3M

 

Nirvana - Lithium (personal favorite)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkcJEvMcnEg

 

Nirvana - About A Girl (Peel Sessions)

https://youtu.be/eh5DUevrDiQ

 

Ok so enough about recounting my teen angst and futility, time to put on my suit and tie drink my morning coffee and go to my 9-5 with what little soul I have left. Bye~

Muse - Knights Of Cydonia

 

I absolutely adore this music video. Kung-fu fighting cowboys, robots, laser guns.. it's got it all.

 

I want a movie set in this universe, I really do.

 

Muse are so ridiculous and over the top but I've always liked Knights of Cydonia and a few other songs.

Watched that the other night, really enjoyed it.  I was obsessed with grunge and the Seattle music scene in high school.  I always preferred Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains but I did enjoy Nirvana quite a bit.  

 

One of my favorites

Another great song.

 

I couldn't really dig much of Pearl Jam's stuff, I tried. It just didn't have the raw intensity Nirvana had. It just made the more contrasting mellow in betweens just as intense.  I liked some of Alice in Chains songs. I also listened to some Melvins, Meatpuppets, Bad Brains, Red Hot Chili Peppers, stuff like that.

 

Actually Nirvana covered this song a couple of times

 

Meat Puppets - Lake of Fire

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRaZWK_MwHY

 

That doc though, I found the use of animated sequences really inventive, especially the ones that covered Kurt's teen years and his solitude of practicing montage really resonant. The ones where he's just holed up in a poorly made socksty bedroom feels too similar.

Pearl Jam's raw intensity. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIjDen9V6Ck

 

 

 I've seen them lives many times and while Eddie doesn't do this poorly made socks anymore, Pearl Jam are still one of the best live bands I've seen.  I do know what you mean though.  Even on Pearl Jam more 'grungy' albums (Ten, Vs.) they never had that raw, punk rock feel that Nirvana's had.  Cobain wasn't much of a guitarist but he certainly made it work.

It's just funny because Kurt resented Pearl Jam since grunge started to explode onto the mainstream in 1991 and Pearl Jam was one of those that hopped on the wagon, or at least that's how Kurt saw it...but that's another story relating to his neurotic personal insecurities. Not gonna do a pissing match between the two, they lend to their own styles which is good. Eddie got old, is what happened. You tend to mellow out when you get older since you usually find who you really are if you're lucky enough, or you just get tired and you just don't give a poorly made socks~

 

Pearl Jam just feels more polished and has a concise rage compared to Nirvana's chaos, Pearl Jam pulled punches with politics and THE MAN frequently while Nirvana is pretty much contradictory self-examination, teenage waste and uncertainty, sometimes unapologetic even though Kurt was ADHD with his messages. Like if I'm going to see the two, one's a car wreck that shows tragic beauty in meltdown tier self-destruction and one shows anger and frustration at the system screwing them around. These were the people that dealt with Ronald Reagan's and Bush Sr.'s presidencies.

 

I did like Pearl Jam's Jeremy though. But I'm not crazy about them. It's okay to not like things as long as you're not a jerk about it~ So let me rephrase that then, they just had different kinds of intensity.

 

I was a self destructive teenager, so it was more resonant, plus Nirvana has an odd relationship with pop music in between the mellow solos, especially Lithium's mid solo which is one of my favorites of all time (that goddamn bass)... and I like some pop music contrary to the over-processed garbage these days. People care about what others think so ofc they'll go "lol pop music sucks" without a second thought because of some perception and image. In Utero pretty much touched it on and off as well with Heart Shaped Box being the obvious clue. If he didn't blow his head off, he was more likely to go further into the alt-rock and explore pretty much like Radiohead did too. Kurt No brains had that NEED to express and hooligan around. He just didn't want to do it under a microscope. Which is weird, because if it weren't for the exposure, people wouldn't have found the creative outlet to push the genre boundaries so anyways...

 

 

Yoko Kanno is such a genius!

 

Btw, I also like some of Yoko Kanno.

 

I miss The Seatbelts.

 

Reminds me of this excellent intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zs3pYBQhtkM

 

Yoko Kanno - Cats on Mars
