20 songs that influenced Kurdt Cobain at stereogum. I'm not sure if he would really be into More than a Feeling by Boston, but Sonic Youth yes... But Kool Thing? Maybe. I'm sure he would have listed many other songs before Kool Thing. The Knack? Not sure aobut My Sharona either. Where's anything by Beat Happening? Since he's from the NW, The Sonics?! This can go on for days.
