That damn song "Can ya take it all away", for instance, is the biggest Nirvana rip off I've ever heard.  Come on "Everyone's so jaded, there's nobody left that's realllllll", he's trying his hardest to sound just like Kurt.

lmao...dude "Blurry" reminds me nothing of nirvana...Puddle Of Mudd is just another good band. its one thing to have a voice that sort-of sounds like an artist and thats all that it is. they dont have the grunge sound at all. its different to mimick an artist (for example the realest).

I didn't think Puddle of Mudd's older tracks sounded like Nirvana, but however their newer tracks off of 'Life on Display' do imo*. When i first heard 'Away From Me' it reminded me a lot of 'In Bloom' combined with sections of Teen Spirit.

Wether they are or not, Nirvana had a major impact on the music industry, so i guess it's only natural that a lot of bands today would be influenced by their music.

I remember a quote by Kurt that went something along the lines of, "It's better to be blown out, than to fade away". It's a great shame he had to take a literal approach to it tho, but the Nirvana 'legacy' i'm sure will continue and i wouldn't be suprised if I still pull out the old Nirvana albums in 15,20 years time, like people do with the Beatles.
