Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
In my car the only station I listen to, outside of 700 for the Reds, is the alternative station on satellite radio that only plays music from 89-96 or a classic rock station that will play stuff from the 60s and 70s from Dylan, the Stones, the beatles etc...
It's not just Nirvana, I like everything from that era from Hope Sandoval to Alice in Chains to Mudhoney to Mother Love Bone.
Now, music, like MTV is just a wasteland.

For example I wouldnt have know about the Black Keys when I did a few years ago, if it wasnt for some video game I played with a kid from Atlanta.
Sure, various networks have attempted to hit new lows along the way, but let's not pretend the genre was anything other than a voyeuristic mess right from the start.
23 Years and Counting...

Alice in Chains is actually still around but most musical acts just don't last 20+ years. Hell, alot of them don't last a decade. That doesn't mean that they weren't "worth their salt" Doug. I bet most of the acts that you listen to won't be around for 20+ years either. Would you say they're not good because of that?

Worth their salt?
Depends on how much salt one likes I guess.
