There are a lot of Nirvana and Misfits shirts floating around my high school. I find this a little weird. Kurt Cobain died back when I was in middle school and a lot of these kids weren't even born yet. Wouldn't that be a lot like me walking around in a Wang Chung T-shirt when I was in high school?
As for The Misfits, when I gave them a quick listen about a week ago, they really just struck me as really cheesy Halloween-themed punk rock. They have a really cool logo, but the music was kind of lame. E much preferred the Sex Pistols and the Dead Kennedys.
By the way, if there's any reason to give The Misfits a second chance, let me know. I had a big list of punk recommendations to get through when I first heard them and when the first couple of tracks really sucked, I moved on to the next band. Just give me some exact songs that would give me a better feel for the group if you do. Otherwise I'll just assume you have crappy taste and think liking the band makes you look hip.
