Do you have a picture from behind? :P

Edit: I do love the hair, though!


I will not encourage this behavior of derailing the tread.

However I will encourage the behavior of making Starlord happy and posting picks of one of my favorite young guys in the WWE, not to mention a star of Tough Enough. I couldn't find any rear pictures, but here's some more regular ones.

For me to classify a band as overrated, there's one of two things they have to be; they either have to gotten "lucky" by having something effect their music careers that makes it hard to decide whether they became popular due to what happened to them or their talent (Nirvana, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix) or have a niche audience(either indie/ counter culture or mainstream) that would probably support them no matter what (Radiohead, Green Day, christian rock bands).


In Utero is so dark and dreary. I love it. And Bleach is the raw, seminal sound I associate with Nirvana.

It's the heavy tracks on Nevermind that are my favorite. Territorial Pissings might be my favorite track off that album. Kurt's punk influences shining through with a bit of heavy metal Dave Grohl style. But Smells Like Teen Spirit was their first smash hit, and while it does have that Butch Vigh polish to it, I still think it sums up Nirvana pretty well.

And I get what you mean by the niche audience. I find myself always drawn to those bands with the hardcore following. (Except Tool. I hate Tool.) Radiohead, Tori Amos, Bjork, Pixies, Decemberists, etc, etc. The argument for these bands being overrated is fair, mainly because their fans speak very loudly and loyally when it comes to them. They swear by them, (I do), but they never really reach that mainstream audience. A lot of people just kind of go, "what's the big fucking deal?"

In Utero is the only Nirvana album i can listen to the whole way through these days, the rest have some good songs but In Utero is their only great album.

Wow, a lot of excellent bands mentioned. I don't think all of the stuff is necessarily overrated, you just pick what you like. I love Pearl Jam right now and have (and continue to) grow up on the Stones, Beatles, Who, U2, among others.

But here's how I think about it. I have far superior taste in music compared to most kids my age and have a better ear for music than most kids my age.

Considering that people your age are responsible for Pete Wentz's career that's really not saying much. :wink:

Don't think I've seen anyone mention Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. They rock.
