If it wasn't for Nevermind, this band would actually be pretty good. I like Bleach, In Utero and their unplugged album. Nevermind really drags this band back.

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.

When all is said and done, Nirvana's music dominated the first half of the '90s and paved the way for future alternative artists. They may not have been the first to do grunge but they were definitely the best.

1. In Utero (9/10)
2. Nevermind (8/10)
3. Bleach (8/10)

The most important band of the 90's. Everyone should know this band by now. They also made one of the best live albums any artist have made (MTV Unplugged). They are a bit overrated though, mostly thanks to Cobain's death.

This band really makes you feel like there's no hope. Some of their songs and lyrics are just so weird. At the same their music makes me want to go on a rampage more then any other music.
