Nirvana, among others, pretty much saved my life as a teen. It was good to have an outlet for all my hurt and anger, and have someone out there that I could secretly relate to, without telling anyone why or how I relate.

I hate when people put down rock. It has as much or more meaning as jazz or whatever older people like. LOL. But I do like older music too.

Lithium
by Nirvana

I'm so happy
'cause today I've found my friends,
they're in my head

I'm so ugly,
that's OK 'cause so are you,
we broke our mirrors

Sunday mornin'
is every day for all I care
and I'm not scared

Light my candles
in a daze
'cause I've found God

Yeah! (x7)

I'm so lonely,
that's OK I shaved my head
and I'm not sad

And just maybe I'm to blame
For all I've heard
but I'm not sure

I'm so excited,
I can't wait to meet you there
and I don't care

I'm so horny,
that's OK
my will is good

Yeah! (x7)

I like it, I'm not gonna crack
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack
I love you, I'm not gonna crack
I kill you, I'm not gonna crack
I like it, I'm not gonna crack
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack
I love you, I'm not gonna crack
I kill you, I'm not gonna crack

one of my favorite songs by nirvana, actually Aneurysm, is another one I like. and almost all of Unplugged live in NY.
first time I heard evanescence Lithium, kind of sad. but I like it.
Come as you are is another one of my favorites. Which reminds me I want to burn some songs tonight \:D

Yeah, that's also a great song!!! I love the "From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah" live version best!

Aneurysm
by: Nirvana

Come on over and do the twist
Overdo it and have a fit
Love you so much it makes me sick
Come on over and do the twist

Beat me outta me, beat the enemy (x4)

Come on over and do the twist
Overdo it and have a fit
Love you so much it makes me sick
Come on over and shoot the sh*t

Beat me outta me, beat the enemy (x4)

She keeps it pumpin' straight to my heart (x8)

***

Also a good song:

Jesus Don't Want Me for a Sunbeam
by Nirvana (The Meat Puppets cover)

Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam
Sunbeams are never made like me
Don't expect me to cry for all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me

Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee

Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam
Sunbeams are not made like me
Don't expect me to cry for all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me

Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee

Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam
Sunbeams are not made like me
Don't expect me to cry for all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me.

Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die
Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee

Nirvana's version of "Jesus Don't Want Me for a Sunbeam" was the first song I ever learned to play on guitar.

I grew up on all kinds of music, mostly rock.

This was my song - I truly felt this was every second of my life.
Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam
Sunbeams are never made like me

Sometimes I still feel this way. Although I'm not a religious person
I felt so different from everyone else that I new I was made different
My life started as a blue baby in 1963, I had the same problem the Kennedy baby died from. I lived and life has always been a struggle, being left handed also set me apart from others.
I think I would like to learn this song on guitar \:\)
Only I would have to learn not to get so emotional when I sang it.
Like this one too
Dumb

I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone,
But I have a light
The day is done,
I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Or maybe just happy

Think I'm just happy (x3)

My heart is broke
But I have some glue
Help me inhale
And mend it with you
We'll float around
And hang out on clouds
Then we'll come down
And have a hangover

Have a hangover (x3)

Skin the sun
Fall asleep
Wish away
soul is cheap
Lesson learned
Wish me luck
Soothe the burn
Wake me up

I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone,
But I have a light
the day is done,
I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Or Maybe just happy

Think I'm just happy (x3)

I think I'm Dumb (x12)

KoRn got me through some tough times, too. I don't think I could post their lyrics though. Way triggering to some, I think. lol. :-x
