One of the most overrated bands ever.They are rated #7 on the greatest hard-rock artists of all time leaving behind Deep Purple,Pink floyd,Guns N,Roses,Cream,Ozzy.That is of course not so.They should be like # 80-90.

A skilless band headed by Kurt Cobain. Nirvana is the definition of "overrated".

Impossible since the definition of overrated is Gn'R and their shitty guitarist.

Kurt sucked at guitar, and his vocals, although easy to like, were crap.

Slash sucked at guitar.Kurt was better than Slash at guitar.He also sang and wrote lyrics and Nirvana SOUNDED GOOD unlike that god awful fucking faggot HAIR BAND Gn'R which is a band for faggots.And if Kurt's vocals were easy to like then why not fucking like them then? Gosh you're fickle.

The worse part is that there are teenyboppers that think Nirvana is so undergroud and cool, and advirtise that they love nirvana/kurt cobain everywhere they go.Marc: Omg nirvana is so kvlt.

Why does it matter what other people think? If the music is good then it's fuckin good.YOU sound like a fuckin teenybopper.

Matt: No, Nirvana sucks ass, Kurt Cobain cant play guitar worth shit.

Better than Slash who sucks and is seriously overrated,especially since he was from a shit band that SUCKED SHIT and sounded like fuckin SHIT.FUCK Gn'R in the ASS!

Marc: But it doesnt matter, Nirvana is so und3rground. Im cool by liking them, unlike the idiots that

Yeah,whatever.You care what other people think instead of caring about music.You're a fuckin poser.GO TO HELL.
Nirvana while not the best band ever were certainly one of the best modern bands along with SUBLIME and LBDA and GREEN DAY.
Some of you teeny boppers scare me with your ignorance.
The whiniest group of fucks to ever walk the planet. Can u name anyone form the band besides Kobain...NO thats what i thought. Curt kobain the biggest pussy ever...EMO!!!!
Guy in band A "Hey Curt wanna go play some shitty music"
Curt "no i'd rather kill myself"
Guy in Band B "Fucking emo"

Fuck you Fuck Nirvana

Nirvana was over rated. Half their publicity came from Kurt Cobain taking him self out.
Kurt:My life is so miserable, I'm a famous rock star.
Do your self a favor and listen to some Pearl Jam. They were much better.
I know by now your probably going to vote thumbs down on this definition right now but at least i didn't write one of those stupid nirvana is the greatest band in the world defintions. i hope you all comit suicide!!
Pearl Jam is better than Nirvana

A cool band.

NOT The best band of all time and NOT the best band to come from Seattle...Hendrix came from Seattle (duh) and so did Heart and they were pretty fucking good too.

Nirvana has more soul than Metallica

Nirvana was more rocking and less flamboyant and better than RHCP,IMO

Nirvana was better in many ways than Neil Young (Damn Canadian)

Nirvana was better in every way than GnR
Hi Axl,ya faggot!

Nirvana was better by far than Pearl Jam,AIC,SOUNDGARDEN and STP and SMASHING PUMPKINS and prolly every other grunge band.

Nirvana is better than the Pixies

Nirvana is better than the Clash

Nirvana is better than the Sex Pistols

Nirvana is better than the Dead Kennedies

Nirvana is better than Black Flag or Henry Rollins

Nirvana was better than the Ramones
Nirvana mixed punk and psychedelic rock & roll which was a fine experiment and a cool sound and they almost brought ROCK back but too many copycat wannabe fagz tried to glom on to their fame and hitch a ride on their coattails when none of them were anywhere near as original and infact all copied eachothers shitty styles which was all a bunch of baaaa-ing and mooo-ing like farm animals (AIC and PEARL JAM) etc.
Probably the most overrated band of all time. Kurt Cobain couldn't play guitar, nor could he sing, and could barely write.

His skill at guitar was so pathetic and limited that he was only able to play power chords and his guitar solos consisted of only two strings as a maximum. As a vocalist, he had a scratchy voice with a one-octave range. His vocal range was so horrible that he wasn't even able to hit the high notes when he covered the Meat Puppets' song "Lake of Fire". He often ripped off other bands (Killing Joke, The Breeders, The Pixies, Husker Du, Meat Puppets, Butthole Surfers etc.) and based his sound on their own. He even went as far as to steal a riff from Killing Joke's "Eighties"; changed it up a bit, and then used it for his own song "Come As You Are".

He was also an awful lyricist and most of his music consisted of simple wordplay that had no real meaning.

For example, let's take a look at a verse from "All Apologies":

"I wish I was like you. Easily amused. Find my nest of salt. Everything's my fault. I'll take all the blame. Aqua-seafoam shame."

And honestly, that has got to be some of the worst lyrics I've ever heard in my life.

Now let's take a look at "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

"With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino
A mosquito, my libido"

Do you see any meaning behind these lyrics? I certainly do not. Seems to me like Kurt didn't care for anything that he wrote.

Krist Novoselic - He played bass, just not well. Some talent here, but pretty much mediocre.

Dave Grohl - Probably the only truly talented member to ever be in the band; the only member who actually had his instrument mastered and the only member who has songwriting talent.

Oh, and before you click that little thumbs-down button, let it be known that I was formally a fan of Nirvana in the past. But now I've grown up and have a developed taste in music and it's hard not to pick up on how simple his music is.
Nirvana are the most overrated band of all time; and anyone who disagrees with this statement likely doesn't have a broad taste in music.
