Start a new thread if you want to talk about how much you hate Nirvana.

A little of Smoke on the Water:

This has a quote from shortly after Frank died:

Frank was also in the Montage of heck: ... ?songid=60

Cobain was known for being a stickler for women's liberation and other things FZ would scoff at, but I think sense of humor is the key here, as Kurt was known to have a big one. He also loved experimental music.

Seeing as Kurt used part of "Freak Out!" in his audio montage it wouldn't be out of the question that this:

Was partially influenced by this:

nice find on the dedication, thanks, and the montage is quite good, maybe even brilliant, a 2 freak out samples so far; both the strategic choice and placement of the samples are excellent ... who could imagine using 'who could imagine' from it can't happen here, itself a montage of sound clips; or the orchestra duel between 200 motels & day in the life ... the bollywood warbling imitation is classic, heavy doses of zeppelin & beatles are also nicely spliced into the mix, fred flinstone, hendrix, even the fucking partridge family

would like to hear this in better quality, the vimeo version probably loses some of the shorter or quieter clips

as far as the rest of the stuff goes, can't see a lot of direct influence between hungry freaks <> negative creeps ¿ can't get past the thrash rock guitar and limited vocal style to see any similarities in the music ... maybe some overlapping concepts in the content, common ground with the ugly people of the time & after listening to the montage & dedication, agree that fz had to be an influence on the nirvana guy, but still can't make the leap & relate those 2 tracks
