ITT musicians who are famous mostly because they died young and/or due to the circumstances of their deaths
>>
>>53229244
Not a good example. Nirvana was huge and he became an icon long before he shot himself.

Ariel Pink is alive you dipshit.

Nick Drake
>>
>>53229392
Nah

He's one of the only "tortured genius" people that actually lives up to the hype. One of the best folk musicians of all time undisputed

that's ugly Ty Segall

Dimebag Darrell. Pantera fans really need to move on and not bring up his death everytime they're mentioned.
>>
>>53229244
I recall him saying he didn't have a gun. Did he lie to us?

Nick Drake

I still think nirvana was mediocre and their albums was pleb core. I mean whats so great about them musically?

i agree. stone temple pilots were a lot better

Soundgarden is good. Alice in Chains too.

Never saw this pic of Richard D James before, nice

>>53229863
Listen to most "Grunge" musicians and you will realize that they were just hard rock or punk rock bands that came from Seattle. Some songs to fit the Grunge sound people tried to describe though. Smells like team Spirit or Blackhole Sun are 2 i can get out from the top of my head.
>>
>>53229831
I like to see Nirvana as a stepping stone. They are the band that got me REALLY into music when I was a teenager. I still think they're great. Every Nirvana song is just so unique.
>>
I love him, but it's true.
His suicide is romanticized in the same tier as Cuban.

Dime was huge wayyyy before he died. Cite an example of his death being the only reason he was famous
>>

Stone Temple Pilots weren't bad, and Smashing Pumpkins is great.

Vivaldi was underground for a while there. now look at the seasons

You never get annoyed at Billy Corgan :-)'s voice? He wrote good songs, but I can't stand his voice.

>>53231811
Yeah they obviously were popular before he died but he wouldn't be that glorified if it weren't for him dying at an early age.

>>53231944
This is extremely true. Black metal in general wouldn't have become as popular as it did if it weren't for all the chaos surrounding Mayhem and Burzum. It got huge news coverage in Norway at the time.

Dime was praised as one of the greatest guitarists and personalities of his generation well before his death

This is accurate.

People posting Kurt Cobain and 2Pac are morons.

If it was not made on his deathbed, not only would Donuts be regarded as just a decent, uninteresting release, but Dilla would be just another producer with maybe a few dedicated fans at most.

in every other thread people just post images of album covers

great thread

freddy mercury for sure

Sid Vicious

Uh no, Freddy was an insane showman/vocalist worthy of the praise he got before and after his death.
>>
>>53229814
You weren't even alive when Kurt was, shut the hell up kid.

He was an icon way before 1994, you do realize Nevermind knocked M.J. off the charts?

Darby Crash, Sid Vicious & maybe Donuts are really the only ones posted here that fit OP's criteria. Everyone else is just posting dead artistd they consider overrated.
>>

Jesus christ lmao

>I was born in 1996 but I obviously know how vastly overrated someone who played music before I was even born was
>>
>>53231944

Dead had unremarkable vocals and Euronymous was a hack and was the bully of the inner circlejerk of black metal.
I'm not glad they're dead but I'm glad they're gone.

Doesn't matter, it's a near fact that he only has this fan base due to his death.

Kinda disrespectful since their music was good back then as well as now. It's unfair to use his death as an excuse.
