Wow...Do you think this was meant as a tribute to Nirvana, or blatantly ripping off...Either way, it pisses me off they stole Nirvana's lyrics.

Well, Blink-182 happens to be (was) an EXTREMELY good band. I honestly don't think it's a tribute to Nirvana considering Adam's Song (the song playing) was about teen suicide. Why they would put a tribute of a band in a song about suicide is beyond me;

blonk your logic makes no f*cking sense. in case you forgot cobain (supposedly) committed suicide. sounds like a good place for a tribute to me.

both parties under discussion have no talent, so I don't see how this is even marginally interesting.
