Sure Nirvana were a Grunge band, but they were mainstream. Mainstream Grunge isn't real Grunge in my opinion. The Real Grunge bands were Mudhoney, Alice In Chains, Melvins, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Screaming Trees, Green River, Malfunkshun etc.
Smashing Pumpkins, Jane's Addiction, and Sonic Youth, although great bands, were NOT Grunge.
If you want great Grunge rock listen to "Piece of Cake" by Mudhoney, "Houdini" by Melvins, and "Dirt" by Alice In Chains. And compare that to Nirvana's "Nevermind". Nevermind doesn't even come close.
