But VH1 said Smells Like Teen Spirit is the greatest song in the universe

I tried getting into them... but the only song that I really really like that they played is not even theirs (Man Who Sold the World)... I don't think they suck but I'd never say " I feel like listening to Nirvana today"

Personally, I tend to think they're overexposed rather than overrated. Not one of my big favourites, but I love quite a lot of their songs. As for Smells Like Teen Spirit, I don't know if it's the greatest, but I remember it hitting me like a ton of bricks the first time I heard it around 2000 (yes, I've had a very sheltered musical adolescence).

My sentiments exactly

All Apologies is great...everything on the Unplugged album was just excellent for me. Love it.

All Apologies is a bore compared to every track off Nevermind

Drain You, Teen Spirit, Lithiu, Lounge Act

He's suposed to be "The Spokesman" of my generation, whatever that means...

I had their albums when I was in high school but I stopped listening to them shortly after he died and haven't really cared since

like many artists who die early, cobain never got a chance to put out a stinker, thus is held in a much higher esteem than he probably should be.

i, too, find them highly over-rated... but i, too, love all apologies.

to this thread.

Lithium is probably my favorite Nirvana song. I also really liked Heart-Shaped Box and All Apologies. I don't own any Nirvana albums, nor do I really feel the need to. I always preferred Pearl Jam's work from the early grunge era (I say this like it was centuries ago...)

I just had another thought; what does it say about my generation when "our spokesman" kills himself?

Fuck All Apologies or every single pussy shit they've done since Bleach. Bleach is the essential record, folks. Negative Creep, Big Cheese, School... all classics.

OK, it ain't that pussy (it is compared to Bleach alright) and I like All Apologies.

I could pretty much put all the Nirvana songs I like on one disc.
