G'n'R / Nirvana

had this 'discussion' with some friends: which is better:

appetite for destruction, or
nevermind.

opinion was fairly split, i say appetite for destruction.

wonder what everyone else thinks?

i think they're a bit too different from each other to really pick one over the other without being too particularly biased towards a type of music.

the way i see it is that it's all about the guitar. that's the first thing i think of when i think of 80% of music. there's a world of difference between the guitar on both those albums, and whichever one you chose is probably going to fit with your general opinions on what you like a guitar to be doing in a song. i know that's the reason i'd say nevermind hands down.

Tough call...really an apples to oranges type thing.
Both albums had major impact.
I'd probably chose Appetite, but just barely.

nevermind and ten helped cut down the stench that was hair metal... thus then even though appetite was a jewel amongst loads of hair metal crap, i'll lean towards nevermind here.

Nirvana has spawned its own load of crap and IMO unfortunately has had far more negative impact than what hair metal had...

but guns and roses is still pretending to be a band. which is a worse music crime? spawning crap or wearing out your welcome?

i'd go with wearing out your welcome. you really have no control over what kinds of talentless losers put together a band and claim you as an influence. it would be like saying that it's the clash's fault we have to listen to simple plan now. actually, it would be like blaming green day since i'm pretty sure those guys wouldn't go back that far...

I happen to like a fair portion of what the media dubbed "hair metal", I also happen to loathe quite a bit of it too. Though I'll say the length of the musicians' hair had nothing to do with their talent or lack thereof.
Do these bands lose the monniker "hair band" if they all pay a visit to a barber?

I am going with Nevermind, only because Grunge music was the music of my youth and I guess Nevermind was my Sgt Pepper, I was 14 when it came out and I remember myself and all of my friends just being in awe of all of the new 'grunge' bands. I had a brief flirtation with the gunners but they never really did it for me and I would say that November Rain is one of my most loathed songs ever

I think Nirvana is one of the most over-rated bands ever so I will go with Appetite... plus that is one of my favorite albums.

what about neither? grunge is horribly overrated imo. every time some journalist digs up some obscure fact like kurt's last bowel movement he's put on the cover of a rock mag. i feel bad for him, he can't even rest in peace because these freaks who still think it's 95 won't leave him alone.

and guns n roses...some of their stuff was all right, but axl's antics fucked that all up.

Nirvana is overrated "fo sho." I'm a big fan of their music and they were "THE" band for me when I was in high school but I hate the media "iconization" of Cobain....

OK to compare the two albums on their own merit alone I'd have to say Nevermind.

Both are good albums both had a huge impact. Appetite I think was overblown at times and still lacked a complete dissassociation with everything else going on at the time.

Nevermind even though somewhat derivative at times(but I think all music is at some point) it had power and emotion that Appetite lacked. It also had a certain cleverness that Axl never achieved.
