I can't imagine him listening to Public Enemy. I know that he probably did, but can you really picture it? It's difficult.

I know, but I just can't picture this little blonde grunge man pacing around next to his turntable to 'Prophets Of Rage' or something. It's just two separate worlds colliding and I can't imagine it. Haha I can't even explain this now without sounding stupid so NEVERMIND

Negative points for "Meet the Beatles" instead of "With the Beatles"

i've actually been listening to my Nirvana CDs today and I forgot how great they were. Milk It and Radio Friendly Unit Shifter rule so much.

All of the Wipers' records look way too low considering how much Nirvana was influenced by them, but it is Kurt's list.

Another thing that always makes me go, "Huh...." when reading this, is the fact that the only REM record on here is Green. I can't imagine that being Kurt's favorite. He seems more like a Life's Rich Pageant kind of guy....

I remember reading once that Trout Mask Replica was one of his favorites but it's not on here. At least he had Yip/Jump Music. Very Kurt.
