Just saying.  The riff is pretty much the same, the syncopation is slightly different.  Iggy, you sleazy pederast, you.

Did you just notice that?

But seriously, the MC5 were the worst rip off merchants ever. They copped basically everything from the Troggs. They even stole the song 'I Want You' and never even gave the correct song-writing credit.

Recently my music has had a distinctive Jandek quality to it. I basically got bored of ripping off early Palace records and decided to go straight to the source. Then it hit me. I could well steal a bunch of Jandek songs and no-one would ever catch on. Even if he found out, I can't see the Representative from Corwood Industries hauling my ass into court over it.

THE PERFECT CRIME.

Nirvana weren't awful. I think they had a handful of songs that were very good indeed. If your favourite conventional rock band played these songs, you would think they were damn good -

Blew
Downer
Breed
Territorial Pissings
Drain You
Lounge Act
On A Plain
Dive
Aneurysm
Serve the Servants
Scentless Apprentice
Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle
Very Ape
Milk It
Radio Friendly Unit Shifter
Verse Chorus Verse
Moist Vagina
I Hate Myself and Want to Die
Oh, the Guilt

Everything else associated with Nirvana can suck the big one. Geffen Records, Butch Vig, Courtney Love, Heroin Addiction, most of the singles and certainly their ridiculous legacy as the best band evar. These exterior factors have retrospectively tarnished these fine rock songs. That is a real shame.

Why did you capitalize "Herion Addiction?"  Is that a band or something?  I thought it was just that Kurt and Courtney were herion addicts.

I come from a family of pedants. I noticed that he capitalised that and it amused me briefly. But even I, the fruit of the union of a pedant father and a pedant mother, chose not to point it out.

You sir, are the king of all pedants.

Aneurysm

Admittedly this is a pretty good song, if just for the comically simple solo that's so bad it works. Nice chorus too. Really the only decent tune they penned though.

It's easy to say 'if a good band played these songs I'd like 'em' 'cos well, yeah, then Cobain's godawful voice and sloppy guitar playing wouldn't be fucking everything up. So a few modern bands probably could save a few Nirvana songs. And the other guys in the band had their moments. They were still gash as an overall package.

The only Nirvana album I ever cared for wasUnplugged. I always found it amusing that the only album I enjoyed by them was mostly not their music to begin with.

I could well steal a bunch of Jandek songs and no-one would ever catch on. Even if he found out, I can't see the Representative from Corwood Industries hauling my ass into court over it.

That would make for an awesome movie, though. "Coming this fall...Ron Perlman is a reclusive, mysterious musician whom no one has ever seen or interviewed. Tommydski is a con artist turned musician using his songs to make a name for himself. On Friday, October 22nd, they'll both be...Courting Jandek. Rated R."

Damn, now I keep thinking of Ron Perlman singing Jandek songs.

I think, I think I like that image a lot better than plain old Sterling Richard Smith playing them.
