Hey, Cobain was apparently quite the showman. Falling halfway off the stage like he was being knocked out by whatever while soloing seems pretty hardcore to me.

But yes, that is a pattern I've seen with modern alt. rock and modern rock groups, they seem a bit more physical reserved, in a way. Music can have energy, but the group needs to show it for it to be effective.
