In your opinion.

You have done it to me like a dozen times on just the last 3 or 4 pages.

If you're asking someone who was around when Nirvana got big (and I was), about how much bigger they got after his death - then I agree with what I think it is that you're trying to say here… Nirvana's popularity DID explode after Kurt's death. But, really… so what?

All sorts of artists become huge after they die… especially young. Jim Morrison, Otis Redding, Shannon Hoon, Jeff Buckley, Bradley Nowell - These are all talented people who recorded very little music during their lifetimes. But the music they did record was, in my opinion, timeless and important. And - they all became more popular the longer they were dead.

And, just like the above mentioned artists - I don't think that Nirvana's increase in popularity after Kurt's "suicide" diminishes the quality of their music. Kurt may have played a bit sloppy. But as a band, Nirvana made some damn good music with him writing the songs.

Not always, some opinions are just factualy wrong, example.

Sid Vicious has more skill and experience than Geddy Lee.

Yes, but someone could say that the Sex Pistols are better than Rush, and that would be personal preference and thus would be an opinion.

For every Hello, Hello, Hello How Low (there weren't that many anyway) there were more meaningful and better written lyrics. Kurt himself acknowledged his exploitation of writing music for "nonconformist" teenagers. One of the lines from a song of his went "Teenage angst has paid of well, now I'm bored and old...", he was aware of it as anyone and could still craft catchy and interesting pop songs.

but, that would be factually wrong. because i doubt sid vicious could hold a candle to geddy lee. thus that opinion, based on personal preference, is factually wrong.

In musical quality sure (I actualy do like The Pistols more than i do Rush) but in terms of musicianship and talent, its a no brainer.
