Listening Report ? Nirvana: In Utero

- This is probably one of my favourite CD’s of all time. It has so many of Nirvana’s greatest hits. I think (and I’m probably the only one) that Nirvana is a lot like Marilyn Manson in many ways. They completely created a new genre, and have the largest modern cult followings. Nirvana totally brought grunge to the world, and Manson brought us Alternative Music. Real ALTERNATIVE, as in the other choice. Anyways. On with the listening report. This was the second last CD that Nirvana released before Kurt Cobain (the lead singer, and one of my idols) O.D.’d on a LOT of crack and shot himself....   [tags: essays research papers]
