Never thought I'd be the one who'd slip
Someone left a comment in the old "break-up songs" entry today that I have to agree with. And I also think I might need therapy for it. Have you heard Puddle of Mudd's song "She (Fucking) Hates Me"? We did for the first time this weekend on the local station that claims to be the 'new rock alternative'. When it first came on Friday night, we had the volume down low and it was the tail-end of the song. I turned to Todd and asked, "Is that the new Nirvana song that Courtney was being a bitch about releasing?" We just didn't hear enough to tell. But after the movie was over on the drive home, it came on again, so we blared it. Through the entire song we kept saying, "Is it?" And, "Nah...couldn't be." Then, "Well maybe..." So I got home and looked it up -- and it's Puddle of Mudd. Puddle of (Fucking) Mudd. I was stunned.

So then, I had to admit the worst thing possible thing to my snotty music self -- I actually <gasp> liked a Puddle of Mudd song. We spent a few moments consoling each other. Convinced ourselves that we were just so desperate for "good" music again that we were willing to grasp at straws and pretend anyone was Nirvana just to cope with what's on the radio these days. But did that stop me from hopping on Limewire and downloading the song? Hell no. We're gonna have a problem here...

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

That's the worst... some band you absolutely loathe actually comes out with a good song and you have to re-evaluate your opinion of them. Or at least wonder if someone else wrote it for them.

Dude. I thought it was Nirvana when I first heard it, too. And then I thought it might be Soul Coughing. And then when I found out who it really was, I snuck into my daughter's room and grabbed her Puddle of Mudd cd and *gasp* listened to the song!

I'm so....ashamed.

The Nirvana song that Courtney was such a bitch about really isn't /that/ good

Awww, and I was going to say the new Nirvana song is pretty cool... oh well. Guess the new radio station in town is a good thing, though I'm now officially tired of the Puddle of Mudd song...

Who is Nirvana? What is Puddle of Mudd? (Sorry, just couldn't resist. Would you like to slap me now or later? *wink*)

I guess I'm a little tardy here... but how is that *not* Nirvana? I mean, besides the fact that it's technically not Kurt Cobain singing it... it *is* Nirvana for all intents and purposes... and I bet in a blind taste test, 4 out of 5 dentists would agree.
