From PaperVinnie 11/09/2017 18:01
The thing about this band is that people do overrate them sometimes, but at the same time, they really do deserve most of the credit they get. If it wasn't for Nirvana breaking into the mainstream, that hole scene would've never been discovered by the mainstream. Musically they were unique, but not really innovative, but they didn't need that. The fact that they popularized the grunge scene alone makes them one of the most important bands of all time. If it wasn't for Nirvana, you would've never heard about the Pixies, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Mudhoney, Sonic Youth, and so many ore bands from that scene.

I have conflicted feelings on this band. On one hand, they are probably the most overhyped band of all time and most of their songwriting is very formulaic and same-y. On the other, Kurt Cobain was a brilliant lyricist (I disagree with those who criticize him for not making a lot of sense) and I love them when they're at the noisiest (i.e. Scentless Apprentice) and softest (i.e. Something In The Way): I'm just not a fan of the poppier stuff in between. Also, I'm sure it says something about them when all of my favourite tracks on MTV Unglugged are the covers.

That was the formula! Hüsker Dü were close with their influences of 60s Pop and Folk-Rock melodies, but if you take a already expanded Hardcore and feed it with the sweet rough voiced melodies of Bryan Adams, Foreigner or REO Speedwagon, you get something really catchy. But only when you are able to combine it the right way, when you have the talent of songwriting and a broken heart. Last thing was a price too high to pay.

Nirvana soa como uma banda de punk Rock! Eles são totalmente diferentes do Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains e Soundgarden! A banda abriu as portas pro som alternativo sair das garagens e se juntar ao mainstream! São sem dúvidas a banda mais importante dos anos 90 e uma das mais importantes de todos os tempos! Muitos criticam a banda, dizem que é superestimada, mas dizem isso pelo fato de ser uma banda minimalista, não haver solos de guitarra, etc, porém, montar uma banda certinha é fácil e existem milhares por aí, agora, montar uma banda com sentimento, que exprime paixão, ódio, rancor, felicidade à quem ouve, é difícil, e eles faziam com maestria! Revolucionaram o Rock!

Still one of the best bands ever. Many people don't get Nirvana or hate them just because it's not "real music" or they have "bad guitar solos". Guess what, Beatles' solos weren't any better, and if you prefer auto tuned vocals, 100 producers who write songs and no real instruments to deeply personal and reflective lyrics and massive hooks, riffs and songs you go ahead.

Excellent band, yet very over-rated at the same time. IMO the best bands of the 90's were Radiohead, Blur, and The Smashing Pumpkins.

From Edwarda85 05/31/2016 14:32
Probably the most overrated band in the history of music.

Nirvana arrived on the music scene when popular music didn't know where to go next. Listeners were done with 80's hair metal and done with pretty moody synth.

A perfect concoction of a new sound plus an empty mainstream throne combined with the ability to sonically personify the feeling of a generation rose Nirvana to the top.

They aren't great musicians. They aren't great singers. They aren't even smart lyricists. But they are gut wrenchingly raw and cathartic.

Sprinkle in a who-dun-it murder/suicide and it's the stuff of legends.

But if we can see through the how's and why's of Nirvana's reign and look strictly at the what's, meaning the music, they are average. Followers did it better---refined and melodic-- and preceding underground bands like Pixies did it smarter.

Cobain had an endearing quality that I personally find unnerving and can be found in any high school--the "I don't even care if I'm cool, I'm just doing this because I can" schtick.

So many people do everything that they can to fit in and be accepted that seeing someone so un-interested in being so is magnetic to those types.

Still, it doesn't make for a legendary band. Nirvana cast a spell on people that still baffles me today.

I'm probably going to bother more than a few people when I say that I prefer Nirvana to The Pixies, and I prefer Pearl Jam to Nirvana (yes, it's all back to front for me). Having said that, Nevermind followed after Pearl Jam's Ten and helped kick off the decade in a sound that would define it. Though they only have 2 good albums, their influence affirms their status as one of the greatest bands. Their perpetual wave of tortured-teenage fans drive me nuts, but that's not their fault.
