I realized the other day, with the 20th anniversary of the release of Nirvana's Nevermind,that I like Nirvana a whole hell of a lot better today than I did then, as a 15-year-old. Is that weird? Shouldn't I be too old to be resonating with thedisenfranchised youth of America?
I'm honestly not sure if it's a good sign or a bad sign that I like the band better now than then. On one hand, I feel like maybe I'm not that old, and I've still got a glimmer of with-it-ness. On the other hand, maybe I'm going through a second childhood and I should get ready to tack up posters on my bedroom wall and slam the door.
However, since I'm also debating the appropriateness of their song "Lithium," I'm probably just as old as I feel I am.
