yes (they already have). this generation probably thinks green day and avril lavigne invented punk, but that doesnt mean bands like the ramones and the stooges lose their place in history, so the same goes for nirvana (besides i think kids these days still know who kurt cobain is)

i had another cousin who is only about 4 years younger who has no idea who cobain is. although she is WAY sheltered and such. another thing i think is funny is that when the first cousin was talking to another cousin's stepson (i hav a lot of cousins) about greenday, he said it doesnt get anybetter than dookie. he had no idea what he was talking about. these kids dont know anything about greenday prior to american idiot!

i guess my point was there will always be people who know better.

besides we all know that in twenty years Spin will still be putting cobain on their cover at least three times a year.

Of course history will remember Nirvana, it will always be in President Dave Grohls biography.

Nirvana will be remembered just because nothing important really happened in popular music in the 90's.

i was thinking the other day about the future of 'classic rock' from the grunge movement. a bunch of dudes in their 40's who fondly remember 7 Mary Three and Candlebox. oh jeez.
