I'm probably going to bother more than a few people when I say that I prefer Nirvana to The Pixies, and I prefer Pearl Jam to Nirvana (yes, it's all back to front for me). Having said that, Nevermind followed after Pearl Jam's Ten and helped kick off the decade in a sound that would define it. Though they only have 2 good albums, their influence affirms their status as one of the greatest bands. Their perpetual wave of tortured-teenage fans drive me nuts, but that's not their fault.

What you get when you mix Mudhoney, The Beatles, and the Pixies.

Terms like extremely influential,genre-defining and overrated are constantly being thrown at the band. And I agree with all of them. They're great,but not one of the best artists of all time.

For everyone who thinks Nirvana were talentless and boring, I would highly recommend listening to Downer, Breed, Aneurysm, and Scentless Apprentice. Very original and passionate!

My second Favourite band after The Smiths.

To me Nirvana were to the US and grunge, what Oasis were to the UK and Britpop... Good but over-rated as hell.

Although I think the Pixies were equally good - if not even better - Nirvana was my first "favorite band" and because of that they will probably remain the band that was the most important in my life.

Saying one of the best bands of all time, seriously has no substance and where does it end? Top 20, top 50 or top 100?
