This is the one REM song I like.

I have nostalgia for this song because I used to know a youngster who loved this song.

For some reason, NIN hasn't aged well for me. What sounded cutting edge to me back then just sounds like the musical equivalent to fanfic to me now.

Aerosmith ended for me after Rocks.

You had mentioned how Kurt Cobain cited Gang of Four and Scratch Acid as influences. After checking out Gang of Four, I've become a frequent listener. (Scratch Acid did nothing for me.) I like Gang of Four much more than I like Nirvana, in fact.
