Funny how a college atmosphere can make you try to mold your tastes, but in the end, you still just like what you like.
The day Kurt Cobain shot himself, every TV in the dorm had MTV on and their doors open.
I was in college as well, and I, like Johnny, bought tons of CD's from that era. Most of it, I don't listen to anymore. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice In Chains are the ones that stuck. I still listen to their stuff from time to time.
The day Kurt Cobain died we were having a pig roast at our fraternity house. I was drunk by 10am. I took a nap at 2pm and woke up by 4 and started drinking again....ahhh, those were the days...
