Welcome...................................to Jurassic Grunge.

Was Nirvana even "the new Nirvana" for their time? I mean, as seismic as their impact eventually turned out to be, was it necessarily greater than the initial impact of, say, the Sex Pistols so many years earlier?

Ronan, I 'm not referring specifically to grunge but a band that is liked by the mainstream and underground audience and will rid new metal and boy bands from Top 40 radio.

I remember Nirvana was hailed as "the Guns 'n Roses it's OK to like" so a "new Nirvana" would be something along the lines of "the Limp Bizkit it's OK to like". I guess we will have to wait for that one until the Black Jack Johnson album comes out... Mos Def and his new band turning black America on to rock music. If he can pull it off, that would be a major upset to the music industry, including Clear Channel... I'm not sayng this will or even should happen, I'm just extrapolating a tiny idea...

ATTENTION! There is now information showing that Clear Channel Communications was aware of the New Nirvana before Kid Corn Biscuit attacked. The President of Clear Channel himself received a CD-R and did nothing about it. Oh the horror, Oh the guilt.

Of course, a new Nirvana could have the same effect as the old one. The majors buy up every indie band they can find, many of whom will suck. Within a year or two the harsh light of day will destroy the low key scenes that allow great bands to develop. Hasn't anybody read Our Band Could be Your Life?

How about a mini-Nirvana every couple of years.

At one of their sold-out shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, I stood next to a middle-aged man, who had traveled hours from Philadelphia to see Big Thief, and told me that a band hadn't been this important to him since Nirvana.

I guess every decade needs its own, "this Shins song will change your life."
