You're asking for it.

I couldn't believe that "Fall Down" was a hit until I realized that I was remembering "Hold Her Down" instead.

Crash Test Dummies first few albums are actually really solid. They do a nifty cover of The Replacements "Androgynous"! And a song about Superman!

And that song about Superman was actually a bigger hit in Canada than Mmmmm Mmmmm Mmmmm was.

I'm still a bit baffled as to how "Mmmmm Mmmmm Mmmmm" managed to be a number one hit.

You don't remember how "About a Girl" goes? That is their most Beatleseque song (and rendition).

"About a Girl" is great but the Unplugged version less so. "Loser" and "Kenneth" obv also classics but I get nostalgic for the Lemonheads on hot days like today so here's a vote for "Into Your Arms".

3 weeks pass...

Although Gin Blossoms were terrible, "Found out about you" was a pretty fine song. But it's gotta be "All Apologies." Great song, great recording by Albeenee

This poll was so long ago (my first one... screwed up the date) that I can't remember who I voted for. But I think it was also "All Apologies."

Like I'm not going to vote for the grudge-bearing stalker.

Boringly voting All Apologies.

voted for Toad.

The only things here I'm really sick of are the Offspring and maybe Bang & Blame.

I kind of don't mind any of these songs but I'm not excited by any of them.

Moka, Friday, 29 June 2012 02:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

can't remember if I voted for "Kenneth" or Counting Crows' "Einstein on the Beach' which I seem to remember liking when I was 12 but maybe I don't anymore. Recall it being quite jaunty.

well in theory everybody does, i think

y'know "All Apologies" is maybe the one Nirvana song i wouldn't mind never hearing again

goonrise zingdom (some dude), Sunday, 1 July 2012 23:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's kind of awesome imo; I'm like the dude that things the chorus of "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" is a turd in a punchbowl, so the "in the sun" part of AA should really piss me off, it has no real right to work, and it works magnificently

like I see how lots of it (the q&a verses, that overinvoluted endchant) can come across as horrifically trite upon overexposure, but I think it sounds even more original than it did back then

i just don't really fuck with slow/midtempo Nirvana i think, am almost as weary of "Come As You Are" and "Dumb" and "Pennyroyal Tea"
