Damn straight on the Cobain bashing. My heroes have always been emo boys that whine about being rich and famous. But Kurt really cements his place in my cool book by being so selfish that he left his daughter without a father, but with that addled fucktard of a mom.
i want that shirt. i was never a huge buffy fan but i think that shirt is funny. i like nirvana but wasn’t all that sad when kurt cobain died. i mean it was horrible but i wasn’t all torn up about it.
word- i <3 dave. i met him once when i worked at a radio station. he's cool.
Here’s a suggestion. Let’s hold a massive Twilight convention that only the maddest, most obsessed fans can earn a ticket for. Once the hall is full we lock all the doors and pull the sheet off the roof revealing a spraypainted picture of the Prophet Mohammed fucking a donkey and send a live webcam of the building with a google earth map to every news station in the Eastern world… and then wait for the inevitable.
I agree with beedoggery, whatever you think about the Foos you can’t deny that wee Dave is an excellent drummer, especially when in Nirvana. Just listen to his work on QOTSA’s Song For The Dead and you’ll see.
Just to check, would I be eternally hated by everyone if I admit to loving Pearl Jam?
I’m going to be politely restrained on this Lamebook comments page, because I feel sometimes I’m too harsh.
So: Jacob Taylor’s parents, Nicole and Shannon:
The above also goes for Stephenie Meyer, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and anyone else who seems to have made it their job to ensure there will be reminders of the Twilight series no matter where in the fucking world I run to.
1 – Ooooh I feel for the kids born between 2008 and 2012…. Someone I know is calling their newborn Edward Jacob, so shameful. Another has called her daughter Alice Isabella. These people shouldn’t be allowed to procreate.
2 – *shakes head* he could never be cobain
3 – Epic T-Shirt. Awesome
4 & 5 – White coats needed for these ones! There is something beyond wrong, this sort of obession isn’t healthy
Why is everyone hating on Dave here? He’s not overly special, but the Foo Fighters were better than most of the other mainstream shit being tossed around on the radio, and he really kicks ass in Them Crooked Vultures.
Ohh another Twilight post. YAY! I think I just came. TWILIGHT ROCKS MY SOXXXX SO HARD lolololol!!!!!!1 ^_^
No really, Edward is NOT hot. I’m not a lesbian either. I’ve actually had to clarify that to certain Hot Topic-soaked individuals who can’t imagine why a dead guy with the body of a 9 year old girl doesn’t do it for me.
I love this Kurt Cobain love in. He was the posterchild for the mainstream music industry no matter how vehemently he tried to separate himself from it. If he wasn’t such a tragic and didn’t off himself in suspect circumstances no one would care.
Nirvana were only percieved as legends of that era because the rest of the music industry was flagging. They’re like the Nickelback of the early 90s.
Oh yeah, I went there.
Slim, drummers aren’t replaceable, I suggest you listen to a few live deep purple albums. Ian Paice is a legend on the skins.
BritishHobo, i will admit that i thought in the past that you were excessively angry. this post however makes me take it all back. i apologize for doubting you.
Hobo and slim ftw. that’s all i have to say.
Am I the only Harry Potter fan/person who knows Robert Pattinson was Cedric Diggory in the movie(Goblet of Fire?) It makes me wonder what all the fuss is about. At least in GOF, they cleaned him up and he looked nicer than he does in Twilight.
the Ben thing is, for example, explained in the comments of a recent post called background checks, but for your convenience I’ll post it here.

love the tampons and the dog taking a dump!
one last time: Ben is a lamebooker who one day took huge offense to people posting “first” if they were first. so many of us took the chance to pester him about his rotten attitude. one way in which we did that was by starting the practice of posting “Ben” rather that “first” if we were lucky enough to be first.
don’t forget that Ben is Frodo. AND he does not have a pool.”
BananaRepublic, music industry flagging? It would probably take me 10 minutes to come up with a list of 100 huge artists from around that time, many of them hailing from the rock genre. I do think the idolatry of Cobain is way over-the-top (and I’d argue the same about Hunter S. Thompson…), but I still think Nirvana’s music deserves the recognition it gets. In the early 90s, I remember Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Soundgarden being a grunge trifecta of sorts, and I also remember them all hating being called “grunge.” That was all before Kurt died.
That was the first time I read that Frodo thing, and I must say, that was hilarious.
To quote one of my favourite movies, “That look was so gay. I thought Sam was gonna tell the little hobbits to take a walk so he could saunter over to Frodo and suck his fucking cock. Now *that* would have been an Academy Award worthy ending. And then, right after the Sam/Frodo suckfest, right before the credits roll, Sam fucking flat out bricks in Frodo’s mouth.”
