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 Bayesian average rating of 83.6/100, a mean average of 82.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.8/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 17.3.

The Unplugged and Reading albums are two of the greatest live records ever released, although I do think Nevermind is a tad overrated

At the time (early nineties) I wasn't really into the whole grunge hype. Of course I heard the singles, thought they were ok back then. Later on (early 2000's), when I broadend my musical taste, I re-discovered some bands, like Nirvana. Listening to them now, you can still hear why Kurt Cobain is considered such a talent, although I doubt their music would have been as strong as 'Bleach' and 'Nevermind' if they made more albums than they did.
Still, their influence can still be heared in today's rock

An overrated band. Not one of the greatest of all time. However, there are a lot of moments on their albums that I enjoy. Cobain has an excellent voice, and this band was a kickstarter for Dave Grohl.

I don't think any other band has conflicted me as much as Nirvana have over the years. At one point, I thought Nirvana were the best band from the '90s and easily the best grunge band of all time. At another, much later point, I thought they were overrated beyond belief and "a poor man's Pixies."

Nowadays, I just consider them to be a solid band overall. I believe that Layne Staley-era Alice in Chains were the best grunge band but Nirvana are not that far behind. For as overplayed as Nevermind is, I still find some of the singles and the more "deep" cuts from it like "Polly" and "Something in the Way" to be highly enjoyable listens.

In Utero and the MTV Unplugged live album are their best work imo and those are the albums that I would recommend to someone on the fence about Nirvana's music. I always wondered what their music would've sounded like had Kurt Cobain still been around but it's just one of those what-ifs in life.

So, in short, a solid band that wrote some solid music. Nothing more, nothing less.

Sometimes I think Nirvana is overrated, but then I remember that Kurt Cobain wrote the best rock song of all time in a cheap guitar and that feeling goes away really fast.

Actually, he wrote a fantastic album call Nevermind, more than enough to be considered one of the best bands ever. You cant forget the impact this guys had. I dont like the term grunge, to me they are rock n roll.

One of the most, if no the most influential band of the 90s.

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.
