Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist is rated in the top 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 17.2.

Extremely overrated band. Thought to have set the grunge world alight but really only have common geographical origin with Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice In Chains, none of whom one would consider grunge and who rose contemporaneously with them. Nirvana probably has its biggest impact on Stone Temple Pilots, who I actually prefer both musically and vocally.

Nirvana catalogue is very thin and the number of truly great songs can be counted using at most two hands. Compared to the early demise of Jeff Buckley, Cobain’s death—while igniting a long-standing debate regarding the merits of Nirvana—was actually less impactful than Buckley’s.

The most overrated band of all time. They were a good band, had some good albums and they were pretty good live but their not the 9th all time greatest band and Kurt Cobain was not a musical genius. He is a overglorified simple guy that wrote some relatable songs for the time he was alive, that's it.

Grunge isn't my thing through and through, but their live performances are killer.

These guys made heavy music catchy. Kurt's voice and willingness to shift his sound to be commercial made this band the giant we all know and love.

I like Nirvana. Enjoy all their albums. But i have to be honest and say they are the most overrated band in history. They just don't compare to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd or The Velvet Underground for overall output. Still a decent band though.

Amazing band, such a high density of great infectious yet equally emotional music. I love the aggression in a lot of In Utero and Bleach and the catchiness of Nevermind. By far the greatest grunge band ever. RIP Kurt
