nirvana (specifically Kurt Cobain)
Nirvana probably had a greater affect on me than any other band. But now, thirty years later, I can say that the greatest thing Kurt Cobain did (and is greater than 99.999% of what humanity has accomplished) is his expression change from his "friend of the guy who is threatening you" look after singing the line "Nature is a whore" to his "Hello I am happy to sell you a waterbed today" look after singing "bruises on the fruit" in the "In Bloom" video.
