    You admitted it again.

    So you have to be on the top of the charts to be punk? And Billboard has a punk genre? Please, go all day. I would really like to learn this information. Because so far, you have offered nothing.

    EDIT: You caught it.
    I offered enough. You just hate being wrong. They aren't punk. But keep telling yourself they are to keep the fuzzy feeling in your head I guess. You're not as musically intellectual as I thought.

    This is going to sound rude (and it kind of is), but your arrogance about your musical opinion is extremely off-putting.

    You have offered nothing besides how they sound to you. Read your posts.

    You made up something about not being on punk rock billboard.

    I don't really care if you admit I'm right, I just hope I helped inform you on some punk history.

    That's fine, take it how you want it. I play guitar, bass, and Drums because I'm that passionate about music itself. So I stick for myself and I'm proud of my knowledge and talent with the subject/hobby/art or whatever you wish to call it. If arrogance is your word, that's fine, I can swallow that.

    Either way around, arrogant or not, I stand by my words and arrogance. So, you can dish all the rude statements out you want.

    You're not right and check the charts. Clearly not made up. Nowhere on the charts. So go ahead and spend another 30 minutes searching through countless information for next strike. I can't wait to read it in a few days.

    What charts? There isn't a punk rock billboard? Link?

    At any rate, not ever making the charts doesn't change that MF DOOM is a rapper. Your one point that doesn't exist is very weak.

    You need to tighten up your ears to what the punk sound actually is.

    Disclaimer - I am NOT saying Nirvana is punk. I am not jumping on either side of the disagreement.


    I just want to know what elements do you think make a band "punk"?

    Sirius/XM had a really long Q&A with Jon Stewart hosting and featuring Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Butch Vig. It lasted many hours.

    And they shared many stories.

    Butch Vig shared a story about throwing a party. Billy Corrigan was there. Anyway, Nevermind wasn't released yet and everybody is having a good time and all. And Butch decides to put on this new record that he'd been working on. Smells Like Teen Spirit is the first track. The entire party goes silent. They listen to the whole record in silence. After the record is over, twenty seconds go by and then someone says "play it again."

    Butch rewinds the tape (yes, it was on tape) and the entire party listens to the whole record a second time.

    Billy Corrigan approaches Butch Vig and tells him "This record is going to change music forever."

    And it did.

    Oh, and Nirvana wasn't punk. It just came from a scene that embraced punk angst and punk values when it came to commercialism, etc.

    Hey man, for a guy who likes to give history lessons, I'm actually a little surprised at that you would fire such a ****** rhetorical question at me.

    So let me refresh your memory.

    From 85 to 90, the last thing anyone wanted to be was punk. Punk was overrun by thugs and the worst of those guys were neo-nazis. Yes, actual NEO-NAZIS. To say you were punk was to encourage association with outright scum. A patron saint of political punk, Jello Biafra was actually beaten senseless by these ****s. Punk was absolutely DEAD to all free-thinking practitioners.

    Just like how the blues and country were combined to make rock and roll, Alternative music of the late 80's and early nineties combined punk, funk, hip-hop, pop and metal to create new forms of music.

    Nirvana combined pop lyricism with punk aggression - but slowed it a bit down to more of a metal speed to bring us their sound.

    Was Bleach lo-fi? Yes. A lot of punk was lo-fi, too, so I understand your confusion.

    Was Bleach angry? Yes. A lot of punk was angry, too, so I understand your confusion.

    Was Bleach on an independent label and made on a shoestring budget? Yes. A lot of punk was inexpensively produced, too, so I understand your confusion.

    Was Bleach a punk record? Hell no. Bleach used punk as an influence, sure. but it wasn't punk. Calling it punk is a disservice to it's legacy, and when it came out, making the comparison would have caused an argument about neo-nazism.

    I personally don't like to put music in it's "category", because it seems the categories get too broad and people don't agree on what makes something belong to a certain group. The only categories I use are "music I like" and "music I dislike".

    I've heard arguments that "punk" is the attitude, values, and anti-conformity of the movement. I've also heard people claim that punk is nothing but the sound (fast, short, simple, a few chords, etc.) It's probably a little of both (or a lot of both). Though Nirvana is not typically labeled as punk they can fit in there somewhere. I'm fine with just considering them as Rock and putting them in my "music I like" group.

    My friend is a die hard Seether fan. Calling that a punk album would result in a punch to the face. If you think Seether is punk, you're just being ridiculous.

    Have you listened to the music I've put on here? I'm a rock inspired musician. Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Breaking Benjamin, etc, were all my influential bands, does my music sound even remotely close to them? I'm a rocked based guy, but does that make my Metalcore/Progressive just a Rock band? Or just the rock genre? The answer, is neither.

    First off,I wasn't firing off anything, let alone a rhetorical question. I simply wanted to know what Bleach was classified as when it came out. I don't know if I got an answer for that yet.

    I am confused by the punk = racism thing. I thought there was always that perceptive for some, but from the beginning of punk with Oi! punk. From what I understand of the CBGB and american punk I did not know this. So Thurston Moore following the Ramones or Basquiat to the punk/new wave scene club CBGB could of been confused for a Hitler youth club? Was Black Flag racist? I don't understand...

    Bill, your timeline is really messed up.

    Around 1985 and 1986 the punk scene was completely taken over by testosterone fueled thugs, many of which were neo-nazis. Every important punk band suddenly stopped making records and dropped out of the scene. Punk had transformed into a genre of music called Hard Core.

    It was no longer safe for guys like Jello Biafra and Henry Rollins to go to punk shows. That's right, the guys who created the scene couldn't check out new bands without fearing for their lives.

    The movie American History X takes place in this dark era of punk/hardcore, I strongly encourage that everyone check it out. You might get a sense of what I'm talking about.

    Bleach was not a punk record. Because it didnt sound one bit like any of the punk music played in the punk scene at the time. Bleach was an indie rock record. That's what it was called then. That is until the term "grunge" was coined as a new descriptive classification, and that what it's called now. Bleach leaned heavily on the golden age of punk (67-80) but it was not a part of punk. The same way that a country artist might lean heavily on the Eagles but are not 70's southern rock. They're something else.

    I hope this made sense.

    It took a lot of hard work by bands like Green Day and Rancid to bring punk back from the dead.

    But Nirvana wasn't part of punk. They were a part of the Pacific Northwest Grunge scene. That's the genre.

    It makes sense, I just don't understand where my timeline is messed up. The Thurston, CBGB, Ramones, Basquiat talk is all from the 80s. I know violence helped the fall of CBGB (and you are saying it was racist violence?). I don't understand why The Ramones went on a Punk rock tour with Nirvana, Sonic Youth, and Dino Jr if it was considered racist? And what was Sonic Youth's Evol or Daydream Nation?

    I understand what you are saying about punk being racist (American History X), but again, that has been there since the Oi! days. I think it's unfair to lump The Ramones and what they were doing with bands into that. Then to go on and say those bands weren't apart of punk.

    Nevermind 20th Anniversaryhttp://www.rollingstone.com/music/al...rsary-20110927

    When Nevermind exploded into earshot in the autumn of 1991, it was startling: a grenade detonating in your car radio. It sounded like the end of something (the 1980s? hair metal?), or maybe the beginning of something ("alternative rock"? "Generation X"?). Today, the album has become so encrusted with myth, that it's hard to wrap your ears around it, to really hear it. In 2005, the Library of Congress added Nevermind to its roll call of the world's most significant recordings. It's a museum piece, a record that merits a display in the Smithsonian. And, of course, a doorstopper 20th-anniversary box set.
    Twenty years on, Nevermind is everywhere: Its loud-quiet-loud dynamics even power hits by Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. The lasting impact on mainstream bubblegum is ironic, considering its big theme: the ambivalence of an independent band going for the brass ring.
    Cobain claimed to be embarrassed by Nevermind's glossy production: "It's closer to a Mötley Crüe record than it is a punk-rock record," he said. Of course, that's what you expect him to say. His punk purism was a religion, but it was also a shtick, his version of showbiz.
    I think this article today touched on much of what was talked about here.

    For anyone that has Sirius, you should really try to listen to this. It's being replayed on Lithium 34 at Noon and 9pm today for the last time. If anyone has access to a podcast or other such recording of it I want it. There's no way you could possibly listen to this Q&A and not come away knowing how much Nirvana, and this album in particular, influenced music.
