no. Butch Vig didn't ruin Nevermind. that score goes to Andy Wallace, which the band themselves picked. naively. and "pop" hooks is what made Nirvana.
and why shouldn't the Misfits be a punk band? great classic hooks, Glen's voice, the rough production. they were awesome MAN!!!! though when i think about punk, haha........i dont think about The Misfits.
My bias, I'm a recovering crusty from the gutter scene, the whole punk enough pissing contests about authenticity or sincerity dominate our narrative. I just don't think the Misfits are aggressive enough musically compared to the bands I linked such as Varukers, Allergic to Whores, or Civil Disobedience. Further, I was dissing them more in the context of Rob's comments that somehow In Utero is boring, but the Misfits aren't. Simply put, punk enough or not, I find their music slow, unoriginal, and boring.
