I've just looked up Heart Shaped Box lyrics and they suck.
Repetitive pieces of crap. Any lyrics can mean anything to anyone.

He's talking about how emo he is.. just like every song. :)


Wtf how emo he is? dude emo wasn't even invented back then.
And the "Heart Shaped Box" lyrics were good, you probably didn't even make the connection between the two words "Pisces" and "Cancer" which were both
Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love's birth signs, so its kind of a love or anti-love story i think.

and there you have it, you just wrote an emo song. add a few chords and a guy that sings like a girl and you are on your way to stardom.

once again, citeing my previous example (it was random anyway),
billy joel was a poet, nirvana not so much (although to be honest they where probably better than anything i could come up with -- but I am very bad with words).

lets face it, nirvana had nothing special save for damn good timing.

Not really. They had natural pop sensibilities. Their songs are quite catchy.

I like Nirvana, infact, my friends guitar teacher tought Kurt's wife (was girlfriend at the time I think) to play guitar, and she brought Kurt in onetime, he showed him some stuff and later Smells like Teen Spirit came out :D. Anyways, I'm only 13...but my cousin was just telling me that Nirvana and AiC, and Pearl Jam were popular during the NIrvana time too. I like Alice in Chains far more than either Nirvana or Pearl Jam.

listen man I'm sick of hearing about this emo sh!t, now it seems that if anybody complains they are pawn as this "emo" bullsh!t, which is just another trend for the kids with no lives and have to pretend to be something they are not just to be accepted, but yeh i think "shickapooka" was just being an @ss anyway
