One of the greatest most influential bands of all time with one of their greatest songs.
Thanks RP

I dig its radical and genius use of calculated cacophony and JAM... Makes me want to hear some Vines, Charlatans, Seahorses...

Groundbreaking in its day, still entertaining today, and perhaps a bit more relevant today than say, a few months ago.

Interesting observation that. You're on to something there I'm certain. Going to have to ponder that one some. Not true of course that all of the comments turn negative but the frequency of negative comments (which is OK), and the level of insult (which is not OK), definitely increase.

"It's sometimes disappointing to find out you're old, I guess."

Could be true for some of them I reckon. I dunno, that smacks of insult too I think. Not probably true for the majority of negativisers though I'm thinking. I'm pretty sure there's a fair dose of the "it can't be good if it's popular" attitude in there too. The correlation between good and popular is pretty weak. Good does not guarantee popular, nor does popular guarantee good, it's possible for a song to be both, neither, or any combination of the two. And "good" being a subjective evaluation complicates things further.

In any case we're speculating on the reasons why but I agree with your observation that negative comments often increase with higher ratings, and I too sense there is frequently a desperate quality to them. And I too wonder why that is.

"I was basically trying to rip off the Pixies. I have to admit it . When I heard the Pixies for the first time, I connected with that band so heavily I should have been in that band – or at least in a Pixies cover band. We used their sense of dynamics, being soft and quiet and then loud and hard." - Kurt Cobain, January 27, 1994, Rolling Stone Magazine
