Polly, despite the fact I only quoted a single, initial line from your essay-like post, I did in fact read it all and I believe you deserve a fist-bump for that.
Also, one more observation that matched up with another post about self-absorbed metal: concerts and gigs from the metal from the 80's and the like are normally more flashy, huge venues, lots of reverb, big kits, shiny clothes, etc.
Nirvana completely reversed that. It's what i call "modest rock", where the bands themselves aren't as flashy in materialistic ways but still puts on a good show. It proves the hair metal bands wrong.
Which is awesome.
