It would have been interesting to see where Nirvana had gone after In Utero/Unplugged, some of their finest work. Speaking honestly though, the only way it could have gone is the way it did. Nirvana and Kurt left their mark and defined a generation and then some.

This band might not be for everyone. But if you get it, you get it. Beautifully simplistic with thoughtful lyrics and great drumming. Nevermind, In Utero and the Unplugged are staples in my collection.

Nevermind alone is a good rock album, not so much a Grunge album. In Utero and Bleach are great Grunge albums. I personally think Nevermind is the Nickleback of Grunge but a Pink Floyd of Rock. If your looking for Grunge, In utero and Bleach. Rock? Nevermind, just don't stink up the place with teen spirit.

Printercat wrote Nirvana were pioneers of Grunge... That's far from the truth! The Pixies made grunge popular with their album Doolittle and not forgetting a great song called, "Where Is My Mind".

Nirvana were great for their time, a few great albums but they are so over-rated. Probably down to Kurt's death.

My love for them only grows. Call their lyrics trite and meaningless, they will still rock your face off.

"Here we are now, entertain us" Defined an entire generation. And perhaps, even now, that single lyrical sentence means more now in describing the millennial generation of today. Call it simple, I call it simply great.

A good and important band that created simple, catchy grunge music with pretty bad lyrics. The frontman's angst and depression made the band, and his suicide made sure the band would be remembered as legendary (even if it never was).

A good band, for sure, but still possibly the most overrated band ever.
