Top Ten Reasons to Love Nirvana

Musicislife

The Top Ten

1 They always put out their best in their music

Not really Kurt isn't the best guitar player and even he admits that - christangrant

2 They are original

They came along at a time when rock music was in a major down cycle, and so easily beat out their contemporary competition, mostly crappy hair bands. Had they started up in the late 1960's, they would have been considered no better than mid-level, definitely a step down from the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, the Doors, etc.

An album as original and amazing as Nevermind probably won't ever happen again, Nirvana is one of the best and most original bands to ever live - Quart

Ok then how come Come As You Are has a Riff that sounds like The Eighties - Killing Joke yeah they are totally original - christangrant

I honestly have to disagree. Yes I know Sub Pop required them to do it, but when your first ever release is a cover song, that doesn't say much for originality. Furthermore, they literally took the riff for Smells Like Teen Spirit's intro and played it in reverse to open Rape Me. I still think they're a great band, but saying they're original is a bit of an overstatement.

3 Their songs are meaningful

But not meaningful as Soundgardens, Pearl Jams and Alice In Chains - christangrant

4 Their music speaks to the listeners

Uh not really - christangrant

5 They're creative
6 They are legends
7 They're famous for their music

Famous doesn't mean they are good - christangrant

8 They write their own songs

This is true - christangrant

9 They're nice

So? - christangrant

10 Smells Like Teen Spirit is one of the best songs of all time

It's not there are so many better songs heck its not the best song on nevermind - christangrant

Just as I expected, this garbage! Listen to rape me or heart shaped box instead of this overrated trash. - gemcloben

The Contenders

11 Multiple Hits

Just because a band has mutliple hit songs doesn't mean they are good in fact their hits aren't their best songs - christangrant

12 They made grunge popular

Yeah but so did Pearl Jam Alice in Chains and Soundgarden - christangrant

13 They have a cool logo
