Being overrated doesn't mean they have to suck, but I agree that they are overrated. It drives me crazy to see Smells Like Teen Spirit in the top 5 or 10 of Greatest Songs Ever lists. I'm not even sure it's one of Nirvana's 5 best songs.

Were they a great band to me? No. They were a very good band though. David Grohl is still doing his thing and is very successful. I was never really into the so-called grunge movement. Some of it I liked a lot, some of it I did not take to.

i happen to disagree. its the perfect rock and roll song. its rebellious, dangerous, apathetic, angsty and it rocks. it's the my generation, satisfaction, like a rolling stone of the 90's.

as far as overrating, I've said this before and I'll say it again, music is art, art is subjective, but to be the kinda band that sells a lot of records and has the artistic credibility that they had isn't an easy thing to do. the only other bands i can think of that sold a lot of records and had the critics kiss their asses time and again are the beatles and u2.

Nirvana is probably one of the greatest American bands of all time. They've had a huge influence on music both on the sound and other things as well.

Cobain's anti mainstream image basically shaped how the biggest bands since then portray themselves to the media. I can see those influences in Tool and Radiohead.

I can't believe that question even got asked. Bowie is an ATG songwriter, while the only thing Cobain was good for was shotgun mouthwash.

PS. I despise Grunge.
