‘Westworld’ Season 2 Trailer: It’s A Cowboy World Out There, We Just Live In Its “Heart-Shaped Box”

Westworld Season 2

The one thing I am fascinated about with HBO’s Westworld is its use of piano ballad cover songs. Sure the mystery of the world and the sci-fi elements have their intrigue, but the music and how it’s woven into the narrative is much more fun to figure out and break down.

So when you hear something like Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box” play in the newest trailer for the upcoming second season, you have to wonder, why did they use that song. Check out the latest trailer for Westworld season 2, below.

2014 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees Announced; Kiss and Nirvana Make The Cut

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum

The inductees for The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, Ohio have been announced today, and while there are some on the roster who are fully deserving of induction into the hallowed hall, once again (and this is actually becoming somewhat of an annual tradition), key bands were left off the list for final induction.

The final inductees are as follows: Seattle’s Nirvana, who opened the floodgates of grunge, post-punk and somehow became as successful as any of the superstar rock groups the band eschewed; Hall and Oates and solo artist Linda Ronstadt, who got her start way back when in The Stone Poneys with the chart hit “Different Drum” (which was written by Monkee Michael Nesmith); shock rock party band to the highest level foursome Kiss, whose “army” of fans have been more than patient regarding the band getting in the hall; prog-rock maven Peter Gabriel, who had success first as an early member of Genesis and then kind of mainstreaming that sound slightly to carve out an eclectic solo career as well; and memorable folk singer Cat Stevens, who after charting an assembly line of introspective hits in the early 1970s, pretty much sold all the trappings that success gave him and charted a completely different life for himself thereafter, one mainly fueled by religious activity.

Nirvana, Deep Purple, Kiss Top List Of 2014 Nominees For Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum

The latest roll call of the 2014 nominees for The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was announced earlier this week, and as usual, the list is full of some names that are questionable, and ultimately some that are long overdue for possible inclusion in the triangular edifice, like Kiss, Deep Purple, and Yes.

Nirvana seems to be the forerunner here and the absolute shoe-in to the Hall. The defunct grunge trio, which disbanded almost 20 years ago after the death of their front man, flanneled-laden Kurt Cobain, was on the apex of the entire Grunge sound movement which shot large bullet holes through the hair metal and pop music that permeated radios and CD players coast to coast when it first burst onto the scene in the early 1990s. More than just a success story, Nirvana opened an entire new lifestyle for teens in subdivisions, urban societies and pretty much every other demographic with their hard edged, yet simplistic post punk attack.

Album Deal: Nirvana ‘In Utero’ For $5

Nirvana

In Utero, the final studio album by 1990s grunge monarchs Nirvana, is now available on CD from Amazon for only $4.99 and is an “AutoRip” selection, which means if you purchase the CD, you’ll ALSO get the MP3 download for FREE.

The highly anticipated follow up release to Nevermind, which surprised everyone (most of all the band), 1993’s In Utero found a record which, while it may not have went down as the punk-filled smooth full of dirty sugar which made the medicine go down as its predecessor, remains arguably the better album, filled with a more punchy concrete production, more arranged songs, better musicality, and stern, loudspeaker style vocals by the late Kurt Cobain. Cobain and the band (Krist Novocelic and Dave Grohl on bass and drums respectively) goosestep with shiny musical metal boots all over this one, Cobain’s lyrics seem more mature, even though they are still steeped in his intimidated, fragility in a dirty sweater his physicality had oddly endeared him to a world he wasn’t prepared to embrace. Songs like the MTV rotated “Heart Shaped Box” and “Scentless Apprentice,” “Serve The Servants,” “Very Ape,” “Milk It,” “Rape Me,” and the longish at least in its title, but strongest in its musicality, “Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle” stand right up there and fit nicely with the band’s other releases, and there’s even a portent of things that could have been with the Kinks-stylings of “Pennyroyal Tea.” This album has two more high profile records which bookend it, the aforementioned Nevermind and the Unplugged in New York live album which followed it, but In Utero is still not to be forgotten and is much more than an artifact from the era of the Seattle slew that permeated the charts and fabric of Generation X.

Browse all 100 albums on sale this month for only $5 each in MP3 format, as well as those available for only $2.99 each.
