All I know is that any fans that turn up wearing his suicide note on their T-shirts are gits, and should be ashamed to call themselves fans. I can't stand those idiots.

It was being done years before they came along, it's just no one noticed until Nirvana came along. They weren't original and Kurt all but admitted that, he even admitted ripping off The Pixies.

Sorry to disappoint SE7EN.

They certainly made the biggest mark (Unless you're talking to a Pearl Jam fan) and they certainly did do some great tunes.

It's a pity we couldn't see where he took the band, then again, maybe that's a good thing.

Best of the three in my opinion. Hardly a fair comparison though, completely different styles.

Neil Young never was and never shall be grunge, and he gets really angry when people call him that.

Nirvana did have one of the biggest impacts on music in 90's. They ushered in the additude of the era and led in the Seattle scene and made it safe for alternative bands to come out and play. They redefined MTV's Unplugged setup by not playing their BIG songs on acoustic, but rather play a mostly true acoustic set. From this band, others bands have made waves due to drummer Dave Grohl. They have inspired countless others. This was the band of the 90's whether you agree or not.

No I don't, and you are ill informed.

You are ill informed. Do you honestly think that some of the bands who got a break would have gotten one without Nirvana? Pearl Jam would not have broken out. Soundgarden would never have made a splash, much less Cornell's newest band getting respect. Hell, even RHCP or STP would have hit it as big had Kurt Cobain not pushed through and added a new attitude out there. They made it marketable and allowed a flood of new artists. If it wasn't for Nirvana, we would still be wading through pathetic post-hairbands...

Like I said, whether you agree or not Nirvana was THE band of the 90s. No other band in that decade helped music more than them. But go ahead and deny it. Think your #ty shred band or whatever music you loved during the 90s was the best. The rest of us will know the truth.

Most Immitated Band of the 90's = Yes
Band of the 90's = No

You seem to be confusing yourself, most imitated makes not band of 90's.

Ok, fine John, please tell me who the band of the 90s was. While you do that, please tell me why you think that. Then I will tell why you are the ill informed one.

Nirvana have some kickass tracks, and I doubt another band will come along that will appeal to such masses of people as they did. Music has split in so many different ways since the early 90's.

No, Neil Young was the granddad of grunge. All grunge bands have roots somewhere in Young's music.

Nirvana was great, but Kurt Cobain was a dumbass. Anyone who can't handle their # and has to pump needles and shotguns into themselves is a pussy ed:meow. He did one thing well in his life, but couldn't handle the pressure of having money and a new daughter. SPINELESS PUSSY ed:meow.

I hope Neil Young will remember, that a southern man don't need him around anyhow.
