The author repeats countless times on how Nirvana wasnâ€™t the first band to write a song like this but it was how the song was performed that allowed people to understand what they were talking about. The writer talks about how the song at times was distorted and the lyrics werenâ€™t articulated very well. That was the basis of his point that this is why the song connected to so many people. The author used the analogy of someone hitting their finger with a hammer and how every body knows how bad that hurts.
