Top Ten Bands Influenced by Nirvana


The Contenders: Page 3XW

42Biffy Clyro

Not a very well known band but if you listen to their album only revolutions you'll fall in love with them

43The Vines

How did everyone miss this? Crazy ass front man in the post grunge era, three peice band, whacked out riffs and power chords. Although I will say I'm more partial to the early stuff, and the slower songs are offsetting but fitting of their sound.


This is a new band that totally has the nirvana vibe.

Five finger death punch? More like five fingers up your arse. They call themselves grunge. They are not grunge. They're just a bunch of whiny emo kids.
