You must be kidding me........

First of all Nirvana took a lot of their sound from the Melvins so stating that they created the sound is pretty retarded.

Second of all Nirvana

That is right. The influence Nirvana had on good music wasn't much. Just about the onyl good influence they had were some catchy riffs, which I have even heard their riffs echo into bands like Paradise Lost.

Like I said before, the only good thing that came out of Nirvana, was the Foo Fighters. IMHO

If the Melvins sounded just like them, then why didn't the Melvins become the biggest band in the world. They were alright musically, and lyrically I didn't think Cobain was really a genius, it was more the passion and feeling he put into his singing. Maybe it's the resonance that so many young kids got by hearing 1 of his torturous screams, that made them so appealing. Kurt Cobain's depression that led to his suicide is a sad story, and I wish it didn't end up that way. Bless his soul. However, while they were here, he did put every ounce of his soul into his music, no matter how ugly someone might accuse his soul of being, it is truth that bleeds thru your speakers when you hear Cobain sing.

If it has to come from the list, I vote Sabbath. If I can vote anyone, I vote Metallica. Not the new poo, but the older good ****. Master of Puppets was the best Metallica album in my oppinion, but Kill 'Em All and Ride The Lightning started something.
As far as the Nirvana argument....... It must have been about '90ish, I know it was prior to Nevermind, A friend gave me a cassette of a band from Seattle (turned out to be a copy of bleach). I listened to it not even knowing what it was. It changed my tastes for a long time afterward. I never even figured out who it was until I saw Bleach on a shelf, bought it and realized I already had it. Years went by with me thinking I was the worlds biggest Nirvana fan. I think In Utero was thier best work. Well, I had a few friends that also liked them, it didn't seem to be as huge as it ended up being. After Kurt did his thing in '94, it seemed that Nirvana fans just started popping up everywhere. Hopping on the bandwaggon of the fan of the dead rock star ...wtfe.... Ask them questions and they couldn't answer. Whats your favorite album? Oh its the one with the naked baby.... wtfe.... Shortly afterward, the grunge/alt thing just started to annoy me. Seemed like a bunch of fakes. I'm not saying that all fans are fakes, but there are alot of them. When Nirvana came along, glam had already tied its own noose. Glam dominated the mid to late 80's, they were to much. Any pretty boy could make glam, and letting any pretty boy make glam is what killed it. At the same time as grunge, we also met Gangsta Rap. I noticed after my grunge phase passed that Grunge and Gangsta Rap had something in common with Glam. Both split the void left by Glam. Any scummy looking bum could make grunge. Any gangsta from Compton could rap. If you ask me, Nirvana had just as much impact on music as N.W.A. and Quiet Riot. They pretty much made a genre possible. Had Nirvana not laid the groundwork for "marketable" Grunge, others that followed might not have had thier chance. Did Nirvana have an impact on music? Damn right they did. It just wasn't as big as the impact made by Sabbath or Metallica.

I never said they created the sound everyone knows they took the riff from SLTS from the pixies and everyone knows kurts favorite band was the melvins, he tried to mimic there style. I was only saying since there popularity many people related to his lyrics and music.
