:True punk is way dead. ...when people were in music for the music and nothing else. Staley didnt care about anything else, neither did Cobain. They were out to make music to express their feelings. Great time in rock...too bad it passed.
...I don't know what is. Staley and Cobain were just like you said, then they got caught up in the generic mainstream world. No wonder they killed themselves. (Yes, that is what Lane did too.)
