Nirvana (the band), anti-phobias, anti-misogyny 

One of the most important pieces of writing I read as a young boy was page 3 of the liner notes to Nirvana's Incesticide, where Cobain writes, "At this point I have a request for our fans. If any of you in any way hate homosexuals, people of different color, or women, please do this one favor for us -- leave us the fuck alone! Don't come to our shows and don't buy our records."

That raw, anti-commercial, and sincere note has always stuck with me.
