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.

One of the best bands of the 90's, them and Radiohead were the two most important bands of that decade in my opinion

From JasonZaia 01/26/2015 01:18
In a time when music was looking quite dismal and uninspired, Nirvana came along and brought it back to life, back to basics; re-injecting passion and originality into the main-stream once again. Now, whether or not you like them - or even accept their status in history - is, of course, irrelevant. Because, to put it bluntly, you simply cannot argue that music in general - both main-stream and underground - seemed to conceptually improve once Nirvana, or should I say Kurt Cobain, re-set the standard.

Pioneers of Grunge, especially on In Utero, which is probably my second favourite album from the 90's (second only to The Holy Bible by the Manic Street Preachers). Nevermind may have been their hit, but I feel like In Utero was the real face of Nirvana.

The fact that Nirvana is ahead of the Rolling Stones simply because Nirvana made Nevermind is...laughable. I know this is an albums website, but if you put The Rolling Stones catalogue up against Nirvana's, it's like comparing mouses and elephants.

With that out of the way, second only to Radiohead, they are the best band of the 90s.

I love Nevermind and In Utero, but sometimes I feel like they are be a bit overrated. They are good though.
