Think of Nirvana as The Ramones of the 90s. They brought nothing new to the table. But they new what to do and how.
They are overated, but so are the Ramones.
They played for the music and were free about their opinions. It would have been intresting to see where they would have gone if Kurt was still around.

They only had three albums, but man were they good. Sure, they weren't as creative and inventive as bands like Radiohead, Sonic Youth, or Neutral Milk Hotel, but they were the face of a generation and they did their part. They wrote catchy grunge songs, and they inspired many many bands to come.

I think people tend to either overrate or underrate Nirvana. Some think they're the best, some think they're trashy. Well, I disagree with both. What they were was the main face of a movement they didn't want anything to do with. They were certainly not as artistically groundbreaking as many people have been led to believe, but let's be honest, most grunge bands were hardly innovative. Their iconic status may be slightly undeserved, but their influence is undeniable. Their lyrics are often so-so, but the raw emotion of Kurt's voice and the band's passionate playing makes it irrelevant. Best band of all time? Fuck no. They're not even the best band of the 90s. Hell, they may not even be the best grunge band. But that doesn't mean they weren't good. They were actually a pretty solid act, in my opinion, and there will always be room for Nevermind in my top 100.

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.

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.
