Here we are now, entertain us

Here’s another portrait tattoo for you today.  This one is of classic rock musician Kurt Cobain.  Now before you get all upset I called him classic rock.  Remember, when Nirvana came out bands from the late 60s/early 70s were considered classic rock.  Well, it’s been over 20 years since Nevermind was released, so to some of the younger ModBlog readers, Nirvana could certainly be considered “Classic”.

  1. Nirvana is grunge…no matter what.

    80′s metal is still metal, even if it was 30 years ago and happened at least 3 years before I was born…

  2. “Classic”?
    Aw fuck, does that mean I’m getting old if that was what I had sex to as a teenager?

  3. Kat: I agree totally. I just find it amusing that when Nirvana came out, music that was 20 years old was considered classic. So for teens today, grunge is now classic.

  4. I really like the tattoo. Now if you’ll excuse me, my warm prunes are calling, andthanks to my AARP membership, I can get a discount on SPIN magazine!
    Where am I?

    To quote the rolling stones “what drag it is, getting old…”

  6. @ Rob, point 4: You and me both. Find it quite scary as well, but that’s not due to getting old but rather I’m hoping that Nirvana being regarded as ‘classic’ doesn’t mean that to some of these kids music wasn’t invented till 1990, or that any music that pre-dates Nirvana isn’t worth listening to, especially as Cobain always seemed to be very vocal in announcing his own musical influences to those willing to listen. I guess ‘classic’ is very much down to the parameters and the criteria that you set……….
