Nirvana - Genius or Overrated?

Nirvana - Genius or Overrated?

I couldn't agree with you more. It is, by far, my favorite Nirvana album.

Oh, so it was killed by Courtney Love, too?

Kurt did.

This is true, but I don't think anyone's ever really tried. I think most of the bands that formed since then sought to be seen separately from Nirvana.

Hendrix and Janis Joplin were also amazing

Jim Morrison.
'Nuff said.

I don't think they've one of the top 3 biggest impacts on music. On the 90s? Of course. 2000s? Yeah. But overall? Off the top of my head I think of the first polyphonic compositions, churches starting to accept the use of tritones, and the invention of the six string guitar.

Yeah, I wouldn't even say The Beatles were one of the top 3 biggest impacts on music, and they made a much bigger impact than Nirvana.

Nirvana - Genius or Overrated?

No poll, let's just discuss it!

Personally, I like Nirvana, but I do not think they are as great as some people do.

I much prefer Smashing Pumpkins, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden to them.

So...thoughts?
