What kids think of classic rock music
The Guardian has an article on this. Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit was a hit, while Bob Dyalan in Like A Rolling Stone "sounds like he's just smelled something really bad, like cat poo."

Nirvana: Smells Like Teen Spirit (1991)

What the grown-ups say: "... reflects Kurt Cobain's skilful mingling of Stooges'-style brute yobbism (grinding guitars and yelping vocals), American punk and late 1970s art rock." (NME)

What the kids say:

Ben This is amazing. The bass is amazing. It's brilliant.

Holly I like him singing, "Hello, hello, hello" - that's funny.

Sophie It's making me think about doing bad things like putting snowballs down my sister's back.

Benjamin This would definitely win Pop Idol.

Holly Good, goodbye, goodbye.

Benjamin 12 out of 10. Actually 3000 out of 3000.

Attention span: Whole song.

Better than Busted? "Yes."
