Miss World is up there with Gold Soundz and Let Down for best songs of the nineties in my book.

“You know I can’t talk about it. Anyways, how is your sex life?”

I think, and this is just a guess, that these four were chosen in part to represent how people of all generations were affected by and interested in Nirvana’s music. Obviously Joan Jett’s from an era a little before grunge, Sonic Youth were at their best around the late-80′s/early ’90′s so that could be Gen X, St. Vincent is a millennial, and Lorde could show that teens today still are invested in the band’s catalog. That’s what I gathered from this, anyways.

Here’s a crazy thought: Buzz Osborne.

Can’t speak on Bows + Arrows (haven’t really divulged into their catalog yet) but I think Veckatimest and Alligator have a much more delicate drum style, whereas Cloud Nothings have a balls-to-the wall approach.

The only drummers I can think of on the top of my head that have that sort of fun-loving, all-hands-on-deck no-holds-barred style today are Gerycz, Dave Grohl, the guy from Mars Volta whose name I’m forgetting, and Matt Thomas (the Joy Formidable), which is too bad because that’s by far my favorite type of drumming to listen to/play

No Driveshaft? :(

Looks like a lot of people aren’t dressing up, which is good for people like me because it was hard enough convincing friends to come with, and I don’t think they’d be too psyched if this were a strictly enforced thing.

I did slightly, in the background/musical section, but a lot of it was about the counter culture and riot grrrl.

Just imagine what they’d give Ringo Starr’s “paintings.” ( for those who hate their eyes.)

Of course, we know Rolling Stone and NME would eat it up.
