Nirvana is the most overrated band in the history of music.
Yes, I said it.

I've never, ever seen a band as insanely overrated as Nirvana. I know a lot of people say bands like The Beatles are overrated... but at least The Beatles could actually play music worth a shit.

For fuck's sake, man... all Nirvana was, was just a bunch of angst-ridden junkie teenagers. They didn't do anything great. There were tons of other bands out during the "grunge" era that mopped the floor with Nirvana... such as TOOL, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, and PEARL JAM.

Seriously... fuck Nirvana.

Re: Nirvana is the most overrated band in the history of music.
I know meth heads and smack junkies that feel the angst in Nirvan's music. They lived the dream- though Kurt Cobains dream ended up a fucking nightmare shooting heroin.

I am saying in the real world people need their real music, and Nirvana gave it to a segment in the culture, it cant be denied.

Music is more than just talent. The guy or gal that captures the angst of life in rock music will be treasured. Nirvana captured it, and they will be remembered by many of us for it. Like all great artists, they moved on to other things.

I'm sorry... I just hate their music. It's the most depressing horse shit I've ever been unfortunate enough to hear. You'll find more cheer in a fucking graveyard than in Nirvana's music.

I mean, damn... it's no wonder the man killed himself, writing music like that.

Re: Nirvana is the most overrated band in the history of music.
Nirvana helped change the face of music, for better or worse. Their entrance onto the music scene signaled the death of hair bands. I know a lot of people who can name the first time they heard "Smells Like Teen Spirit", and there are a lot of bands that would kill for that kind of connection. Not all Nirvana fans are heroin junkies.

I disagree... I think they just made it more "mainstream". As far as "grunge" itself goes... Alice In Chains is a better bet, in my opinion.

A lot of great bands were overshadowed by Nirvana that should have stolen the show back then, like the three I mentioned in my initial post.

Sorry, there were plenty of other bands who could have done that on their own. "Hair metal" was already on the brink of death, and it would've only taken one slight push to send it to rock bottom.

It just so happened that Nirvana came onto the scene at that time. But plenty of other bands would have finished off hair metal, that were far, FAR better than Nirvana ever was.

No, you moron... what I was trying to say is that Alice In Chains is a BETTER SOUNDING BAND than Nirvana.

I don't particularly like either one, but I find Alice In Chains to be the superior band, musically speaking.

Of course, both of their lead singers are dead, so...

Seems like you're just grasping for straws to nullify my position on the matter.

Nickelback is probably the most overrated band of THIS generation.

But then again, most everything that has come out in the last 10 years has been pure shit, so trying to find out who's more overrated than who is kind of like trying to find the biggest pile of dung in a cow field.
