Oh, I would never do that. Jello himself is quoted as saying

The punks need to get over themselves. There is no way Jonh Lydon was as scary to England in 1977 as John Lennon was to England 1967. He could never hope to attain that.

Have you ever heard The Dead Kennedy "Back In The USSR"?

Yeah, it was a revolution. It seemed to literally happen overnight. It was the last really interesting thing to happen to music. I'm not only talking about Nirvana here either, but they DID lead the way. BTW, you forgot the Melvins (the Jelvins anyone?) as being a major influence to Nirvana. Kurt in particular.
You're missing my point. They weren't that revolutionary. There were other bands that have done it before and have done it better. Nirvana just came in at the right time.

And I'm well aware that The Melvins were a huge influence on Nirvana. Buzz has had his dick up Kurt's ass for years.

i can't believe some of you guys are using the fact that robert plant uses the word baby all of the time as a reason that they weren't a good band. that's crazy. on what planet is most rock n roll not about some boy wanting to bang some girl? apparently robert plant is to be looked down upon for saying just that. something doesn't have to be political to be good. led zeppelin songs are more like the roots of rock n roll.

I actually have no quarrell with the use of the word "baby", it was a joke. I have a problem more with Zeppelin's ravenous fans then with them, I suppose. As I said, they used to be one of my favorite groups.

But that's all he ever sings about.

That or some random J.R.R. Tolkien reference.

I don't always look for something political in songs. I look for things I can relate with. I can't relate with Plant's lyrics.

Is it because people make baseless generalizations that are so obvously false it makes your head spin?

Oh, no, maybe not...
I forgot how bogged down in semantics we get around here. I should have said: MUCH of todays music SEEMS to suck. And I've already explained myself. Maybe if people wouldn't lower their standards so much you know? Basically, my reaction is to the attacks on bands that were groundbreaking and influential in ways todays youth cannot seem to grasp. SOME of todays youth. If we're gonna be picky about phrasing. Anyway, I'll just wait for the Nirvana Were a bunch of Pussys thread now. We already had the Beatles Suck thread so why not? Let's attack ALL the pioneers!
You said "Music today sucks". Now, I'm sorry I didn't rummage through the entire Sadie calalogue to make sure that I could read between the words and get to the real, hidden meaning of your statement.

As for the rest, well, it doesn't reall concern me.

But he could be clever about it. We all like songs about sex, especially when they're legitimately sexy, but not when it's that blunt over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.
