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.

Cool, they "invented grunge." Can we get this out of the top 10 overall bands list?

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

A group who possessed that rare talent to make loud music really, really mean something. I've never met any other fan of the band who didn't feel that they had some special connection with their music. I'd love to wax lyrical about all their live performances, the various covers they did, and how good Nevermind and In Utero are, but I think we'd be here all day.

It's not about 'comparing them to The Beatles' because they're 'one of the best bands ever' or talking about 'how influential they were' or whatever. What it's really about is how they manage to make a genre that should put so many off so damn appealing and listenable.

It's that appeal that makes me like them so much. I listen to them when I'm happy and when I'm sad, and they never ever let me down. And more than that, it makes Nirvana special.

In my opinion: it's not the best grunge band, it's also not the best of the 90's and "Nevermind" is not the best record of the 90's but clearly it's the most important and emblematic ..
