Jets to Brazil vs. Nirvana

July 21st, 2007 by

As a Jawbreaker fan I was super pscyhed to hear Jets to Brazil’s 1998 debut Orange Rhyming Dictionary. Although a really great album, I was never able to listen to “I Typed for Miles” without thinking of Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box“ (1993). Even AMG seems to think so!

    Holy Shit! I used to think the same thing! I skip it. Still a great record.


  3. You can also sing the whole of ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ over the chord structure of Seether’s ‘Fine Again’. (And they are admitted fans of Nirvana.) Of course, the melody of ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ was stolen from ‘Call Me’ by Blondie who stole it from ‘Rhiannon’ by Fleetwood Mac. Blondie stole their guitar riff in ‘Call Me’ from ‘La Grange’ by ZZ Top who stole it from ‘Spirit In The Sky’ by Norman Greenbaum, who stole it from ‘Boogie Chillin” by John Lee Hooker.
