I think they both are, to be honest, but yet I still listen to them both every once in a great while.

I think Nirvana would have eventually fizzled out, maybe by '97. I don't think they'd be together now had Cobain lived.

I love Oasis, but I would still say that they are highly overrated, especially by certain British magazines. I have read that Definitely Maybe frequently tops "best ever albums" lists in England, which seems ludicrous to me.

Easy. Nirvana

Oasis is underrated. Especially here in America. Actually, I'd say only in America, cause they're pretty massive in the rest of the world, not just Europe. I think Noel Gallagher is the most underrated songwriter. I don't care if people think that he just rips off other songs, that man can write some mega tunes....

Nirvana. No one thinks positively of any Oasis albums besides Definitely Maybe and Morning Glory, neither of which I consider overrated.

I think I would say Nirvana. I rarely listen to them and only have a little of their music on my iPod. I've seen Oasis live a few times and I really have enjoyed them. However, when I've listened to their music outside of seeing them in concert, I usually just play the hits.

Nirvana is the most overated artist in music history
Cobain is the most overated musician in music history; and i saw him at # 7 in Q's 100 best singers? What is happening here?
Who is behind all this swindle?

Oasis is not overated anywhere but in England.
They were a good band. Thats the best they were, nothing incredible though

I enjoy Oasis. Their music may not be the most original but I think it's still good. I love Don't Believe the Truth and What's the Story and I think some of their B-sides are better than many bands' A material.

I like them, but at least Nirvana did something to the musical landscape at the time.

Thank you

if we're talking strictly america, doesn't a band have to be relevant to be over-rated?

thus then, how is oasis in this conversation?

Nirvana killed cheesy 80s hair band metal and their ballads that were running rampant on the airwaves.

Just for that, I was thankful.

But yes, they were overrated.

Far and away Nirvana. They're credited with so much innovation, but they basically just combined the sounds of The Replacements & Husker Du and mainstreamed what'd been going on on the alternative seen for the prior ten years.

They weren't even as instrumental in launching grunge as were Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.

In Utero, their third album, was initially so bad that the band were basically forced by Geffen to remix it.

I mean, Kurt wasn't even the most talented member of the band.

Definately over rated. If Cobain hadn't died, I'm sure they would've faded away by their fourth album.

So did Oasis. "British Invasion", have you heard about it? Oasis and Spice Girls were leaders in that concept...

That's it. Nirvana is very overrated all over the world, but Oasis are highly overrated in the UK.
