"People have said to me, which I think is crazy, 'Do you ever get jealous that Kurt Cobain got fame and money?'," says Osborne. "And I go, 'Kurt Cobain is f---ing dead. Are you kidding? What are you talking about? You think I would trade places with a dead guy?' Yeah, I wish I had been more famous, and had more money, and was dead. No, no, no. I win. I win. He doesn’t win. He loses. He’s a major loser. His f---ing loss. He left a baby at the mercy of that woman [Courtney Love]. And, it couldn’t be worse. There’s nothing good about any of that."

True. Kurt was a massive loser.
>>

I mean he's right but that's a kind of opinion you keep to yourself unless you're trying to be an attention whore.

It's true that being rich and famous and then dying before you can really enjoy it kind of sucks, but so does being a poor nobody in a band most people never knew existed which is what the Melvins are (and deservedly so, they were never anything but mediocre).

The real winner is the guy who got all the fame and money, fucked the dead guy's wife and then lived on to keep making great music and was still appreciated by millions of fans years later, pic related

nobody except people who like snooping on what *famous 90s scene person* says even pay attention to most of it, i'm half convinced the dude isn't taking interviews/questions by some zoomer seriously

The Melvins are the Imagine Dragons of noise rock.

>>112023886
>Nirvana songs are structurally the same as hair metal songs
so are venom and hellhammer songs
and melvins songs

OZMA? BULLHEAD? LYSOL?

>they're your favourite band's favourite band

Unlikely. A lot of the bands I like are old shit so that's literally impossible. Also

>Billy Corgan has said his favorite band was Klockwerk.
>Dream Theater liked Queen, Rush, Iron Maiden, etc.
>Dave Mustaine Liked Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest and Motorhead

So uh...no. The only band I like who might have been influenced by the Melvins is Faith no More but that's kind of cheating since Patton is an eccentric troll who claims to like literally everything besides the Chili Peppers
>>
>>112024136
He's fucking bald.

And yet still has better hair than Buzz

He really never had a chance.

He may be physically alive but his reputation is just as dead as Kurt.

The Pumpkins are still releasing albums, making music videos and playing live shows. Pretty sure Nobody's bought a ticket to see Kurt in a while

Embarrassing takes. Palpable weakness and insecurity being projected. Brokie should shine my shoes and thank me
For the opportunity

Patton LITERALLY started a brand new band just to play with Buzz? Fantomas??
God, you're an insufferable moron. Gain some scholarship about the history of hardcore, art-punk and sludge metal before you open your hole, retard.

Really? I haven't heard about SP for like 20 years.
>>
>>112028692
Imagine putting in all that creative work to generate the same or even *less* amount of interest in your oeuvre as a literal dead guy and having your fans be vicariously smug about it.
>>
>>112023861
Kurt would see this as a compliment, dumbass. The guy loved the Beatles and Herman's hermits.
>>
>>112024144
>i'm half convinced the dude isn't taking interviews/questions by some zoomer seriously
He isn't.. and it's not just zoomers. Even in his 90s interviews, Buzz gives sarcastic and hyperbolic answers
>>
>>112024238
Because the person interviewing him brought up Kurt... It's the only thing people ask him about. It's gotta be annoying.
>>
>>112024136
Shut up, billy. You haven't had a good song since D'arcy left.

Like I said, eccentric troll. God help anyone who takes that band seriously

This nigga has be struggling with the fact that the only reason nirvana rose to its status and not them is since kurt is hot and he is butt ugly.

20+ years passed and he still has to figt the fact that this is the only reason for it.

The fact that Nirvana was a significantly better band might have helped, too. And I say that as someone who doesn't even rate Nirvana that highly
>>
>>112038895
It's not that really. Melvins are just too niche, not as pop-friendly.
>>
Melvins are fucking garbage

Pixies though, they would have been massive if Fat Frank didn't look like that
>>
>>112039170
Why was Frank the lead vocalist anyway? I liked Kim's voice better
>>
>>112039170
He was kinda seething too lel
>People were trying to call me to do interviews on the anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death. They want me to say some poignant shit about some poor guy who blew his head off. It's just like, "Give me a fuckin' break, man"...Just say the guy made some good records, and let's get on with it.
>>
>>112038895
Melvins were edgelord cringe metal and nirvana proto pop punk imagine my surprise when the girls (and then the boys chasing those girls) don't want to assoicate with the smelly broomheaded asshole
>>
>>112039129
If you replaced them with slightly hoter guys and gave them to a extremely competent label even their discography could be sold to the normies.

I doubt it. They were a deliberately contrarian act who saw what had sold historically and leaned hard the other way. They made records that were not exactly experimental but still somewhat intentionally grating and offbeat

Which is why I find the whole bitterness about their lack of success (which seems to come from their fans moreso than the band itself) kind of strange. These guys tried very hard not to cater to the majority. It was like a badge of honor.
