It's fine if you don't like it, but that has nothing to do with Nirvana's place in the scheme of it all.

You're right, they weren't the most musically "talented" of any bunch. No one is now or has ever claimed that, least of all the band themselves...and "talent" is by far the most expendable attribute to anything having to do with rock n' roll. If you don't know that then you have some growing up to do.

After 20+ years of music historians, rock critics and legions of fans that continue to sprout up with their OWN teenage angst and middle finger to the world around them regarding this band, I'm sorry guy, but you're really NOT the one who has suddenly unveiled the "folly" of Nirvana and has just now revealed to the world that they weren't really that cool.

They were (and are) that cool. You just have a crappy taste in music and think that hair bands were better.

"Ain't lookin' for NUUUTHIN'...BUT A GOOOD TIME! How CAN I...blah blah"

Seriously man you think that horse**** was better?

Whatever.

What on Earth are you talking about? Of course there is a question of whether or not a band is one of "the greatest bands of all time". Any band can be the best or the worst depending on subjective musical tastes. If you think that there is some objective taste in music that is superior to all others, then you need to "grow up".

In that particular context, I'm not talking about subjective musical tastes. I'm talking about a general consensus regarding the impact, success, influence, popularity, etc.

In that regard there just is no argument. Nirvana was one of the greatest bands of all time.

There are plenty of artists that I don't particularly like very much, but I don't make attempts to strip them of what they deserve just because of that.

Not unless you're King Crimson, or someone who likes King Crimson or Genesis or whoever. I'm not the biggest prog fan by any means, but that doesn't mean that my subjective opinion of not particularly caring about a band's musical abilities should have any bearing on anyone else's opinion.

I never said talent wasn't important, or even necessary to a lot of bands. I hold a lot of respect for technical talent. I just said that talent is the most expendable attribute to rock music, which it is. Especially in contrast with classical or jazz music, which I adore.

I love King Crimson.

Sure they were influential, but what does that have to do with whether or not I should like them? If they don't appeal to me, then they don't appeal to me. It is what it is. It doesn't invalidate my own opinion any more than if I did like them. And I do like Nirvana BTW.

The OP wasn't merely addressing his opinion. He was attempting to discredit Nirvana for everything that they were. That has nothing to do with an opinion.

Come on. You just told someone else to grow up, so how can you justify this childish statement? I'm not someone who is opposed to having a heated debate with someone over music, but your arrogant attitude is ridiculous.

I get that all the time.

Ghost Jam, you are overreacting. Your statements are redicilous. You need to understand that not everyone cares for Nirvana just like not everyone cares for Tupac or Michael Jackson or even BOB MARLEY. Just being a smarty pants and understand and that not everyone cares for your band NIRVANA. I don't say this because I hate this band but I am being honest.

Like myself like I said, there are much better rock bands than Nirvana but that is my view. Not everyone agrees with that but I stand by that.

Ghost, not everyone sees it your way. I know you are not the only delusional Nirvana fan who wants to people to see it your way.

Ghost Jam, just accept that not everyone sees it your way. Get over it. PLEASE.

YEah dude said he could name like, 10 hairbands that had better lyricists than Nirvana.

If anyone expected anything less than the response I gave that big hunk of steamer than I don't know what the **** you're listening to.

Dude had yet to name a single one of his "at least 10" better hairband lyricists.

No WAY am I gonna let that kind of horse**** slide, as long as I'm a member around here.

Get me banned or whatever. But when some child comes along and starts yammering on about how he can think of 10 hairbands blah blah blah...yeah, I'm gonna say ****.

Tupac, Michael Jackson and Bob Marley are all awesome. I'd come to any of their defenses just as I have Nirvana.

If you're someone that wants to take a weird **** on any of those artists,as the OP of this thread has, then yeah, I'm gonna come to their defense.

What are you talking about?

Nirvana was never my favorite band, but they did have great songs. Your strong opinions may stem from the fact that their music's become too mainstream to the point of being annoyingly ubiquitous.

Excessive mainstream exposure notwithstanding, I think they're a good band.
