From tgarritsen 12/26/2013 03:13
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.

What a great and important band, though maybe most special to their generation than to others.

Where punk always sings about the external conflict, Nirvna always sings about the internal conflicts of life.

They have no reasons to be "overrated". If you listen closely to their discography, you'll listen feelings, experiences, emotions in a way that just left mark in all around the world. Just like that.

Nirvana has carried me all through my childhood, and this band is amazing.
I absolutely hate how Smells Like Teen Spirit gets so much credit when Nirvana has so many other great songs that nobody really knows, such as Pennyroyal Tea, Breed, or even Something In The Way which are all great songs that I wouldn't think a "True" Nirvana fan would know.
I wish I could see these guys live when Kurt was still alive.
But other than that, great band.

Well, the only thing legendary about this band was the urban legend surrounding Cobain's death.
