Who is more overated???

Oasis or Niravana?

I'm sorry but both of these bands are so bloated I can't stand it. If you like them... cool, but who is more overated?

Well, both bands are overrated to a point, I just don't think Nirvana would be as popular today if they're singer was still alive.

In the total opposite they could have gone on to bigger and better things.

Here lies a signature where once upon a time upcoming gigs were stored.

Nirvana, but I appreciate both bands, and absolutely adore Oasis.

Nevermind is an amazing album though. Not quite as good as (What's The Story) Morning Glory.

If anything, Oasis is way underated, while Nirvana's legend has been exaggerated somewhat and strengthened by the tragic circumstances surrounding Kurt Cobain.

Nirvana, no question. Oasis, especially the first two albums, are overrated as well but not anywhere near the extent of Nirvana. Plus Nirvana is overrated way more widely than Oasis; unless I'm wrong I don't think that Oasis gets that much adulation in US, for instance.

I don't find Oasis annoying, and most people generally acknowledge they weren't the most talented or original musicians on the planet.

However, most of what Nirvana made was complete junk and people seem to constantly praise them as a good band and somehow important. They're over-rated by a mile.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I'm not particularly fond of either but Nirvana is more highly rated than Oasis in the first place so they get this honour.

Don't get me wrong, Kurt was a beautiful man and 'Nevermind' is something of a masterpiece but come on....

Definitely Maybe is in my top 5 all time favorite LP's and Whats the Story is nearly its equal....

Also Noel and Liam are two of the biggest badasses in modern popular culture...

Two shit bands, yeah, but Nirvana is far more overrated. Far, far, far more overrated. No contest, here, even if you're a fan of either or both of the bands.

First, because the grunge scene is one of the most overrated things in music (not saying it's bad, attention...). Secondly, because Nirvana are an iconic product created after Kurt's death. It's nothing special.

At least Oasis is semi-listenable.

Nirvana easily, decent enough band, but the worship they get is unbearable at times....and I don't think Oasis are overrated in anywhere but England.

Just to be different.......

Nirvana for sure I never understood the fascination some people have about that band...
And like some people already said, Oasis are not that popular out of England, and I don't think they're popular at all out of Europe...
