My love for them only grows. Call their lyrics trite and meaningless, they will still rock your face off.

"Here we are now, entertain us" Defined an entire generation. And perhaps, even now, that single lyrical sentence means more now in describing the millennial generation of today. Call it simple, I call it simply great.

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

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.
