It was recently brought to my attention that there are those amongst The Kids These Days that think that Nirvana and Green Day sound exactly the same. Obviously they are very, very wrong, but if you ever wondered what a mixture of Green Day and Nirvana would sound like, you simply need to check out the latest from Sharkswimmer. The Brooklyn post-hardcore band have released "Head is a Hideout" which expertly blends the pure grunge and punk noise fury of Nirvana with the more palatable pop punk and snotty attitude of Green Day. It's a little less screamy than Nirvana, but definitely has the buzzsaw style guitars. And it's a little more straight up punk.
