I was in my preteens when Nirvana became big, and while I understood the influence they had on popular music at the time, I never really liked them much. I didn’t like Pearl Jam much, either. I guess I was more of a Soundgarden kid.
It’s nice to know I was not alone, as Sally Madden created a comic titled “Grandma Take Me Home,” where the point is pretty clear at the top, written in red text on yellow: “I did not like Nirvana.” She relates the story of how her mother really dug them, and years later, a close friend started talking about how she finally ‘got’ them. From there it gets a bit weird, as all the discussion of Nirvana leads to one very strange dream, and with it the entire comic came to a sudden halt. I searched for a link to take me to the next page, and left disappointed because it doesn’t feel like she answered the question raised by the comic: what does she think of Nirvana now?
