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.

"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 and important band that created simple, catchy grunge music with pretty bad lyrics. The frontman's angst and depression made the band, and his suicide made sure the band would be remembered as legendary (even if it never was).

One of the best bands of the 90's, them and Radiohead were the two most important bands of that decade in my opinion

From JasonZaia 01/26/2015 01:18
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.
