REM were already successful in the 80s. They were one of the key bands that set the stage for groups like Nirvana to become popular in the 90s.

Do you have an article about this? Not saying your wrong, but I'd be very curious to read it.

I honestly believe The Smiths deserve in on this list, too.

An article? No, I just have the facts of what happened, and the fact that I was around at the time so I remember it. They had albums and singles that charted going back to the mid eighties. Of course those were modest successes, but still they charted. Then in 1987 they released Document, a top ten album which spawned a single, "The One I Love", that ended up hitting #2 the following year. Then, in 1988, they switched to a major label and released Green, which spawned two number #1 singles ("Orange Crush" and "Stand") while the album itself reached #12. Following that, they released Out of Time in early 1991, which went to #1 and had two of their biggest singles—"Losing My Religion" and "Shiny Happy People".

It wasn't until late 1991 that Nirvana hit it big.

Usually they preferred Soundgarden.

From the perspective of a Nirvana fan it makes sense they can see it unfolding that way cause that's actually how used to see it too but now I'm an old Nirvana fan that thinks they were an alternative to grunge within the grunge movement. Bleach was grunge AF but that wasn't the sound that eventually came to define them, that was the never mind and in utero sound.

I think Nirvana also rode that grunge boom. They weren't responsible for it they were just part of it.
Lmao at Nirvana having anything to do with gangster rap. Completely agree with you, I love Nirvana but they didn't create the grunge music or even their sound. They did it really well, but they didn't create it
