Hey guys! Is there any other guy like me that thinks that Hole was an underrated alternative band?

I'm with you Gabriel!
I think they are so underrated cause Courtney drew too much attention away from the band with...well...just being Courtney Love, widow of Kurt Cobain. And some other stuff she fed the press with.

HOLE was actually HUGE (sounds kinky) here in the states during their first album. They started to slide as courtney began to self destruct. But for a while there they were kicking butt!

I also thought they were a good band. They were especially good live, saw them a couple of times over here!

Well, the quality is there, not sure why they are not more popular. I can sense some Nirvana influences there, which is normal, but... should be more popular. Perhaps it is locally?

I think that they have been popular in their moment but they haven't been respected... and that's because of all the scandals by Courtney Love and also because she was the girl of Kurt Cobain and became more popular because of this than because of his music.

I think it's not about the music guys! It's about the fact that Courtney is a decadent self destructing woman which has also drawn a lot of attention on herself due to the fact that a large number of people consider her guilty of Kurt's untimely death.

yes, this are the reasons why people forgot that behind all this, Hole created good music.
