Funny. I've never really cared for them, either.
Nirvana was good, though. Amazing how they went from the throbbing gristle of Bleach to the fuzzy sheen of Nevermind. Poor Kurt couldn't handle it all, though.
At least Dave Grohl is still around acting like some Rock Ambassador -- not a terrible thing if I made it sound that way. I didn't have much use for the Foos after The Colour and the Shape, but Dave redeemed himself by doing the Sound City thing and pushing for Rush to get into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame (which he shouldn't have had to do, but that's another paragraph or three).
Never cared much for The Offspring, either. But I like Cake.
Pixies deserve their own paragraph, too. They eventually went for the Pop crossover with Trompe Le Monde, but damn if they didn't sound good doing it. I love that record. They had already moved in that direction with Bossanova, anyway.
