Top 10 Reasons Why Nirvana is Better Than Stone Temple Pilots

I know that people don't like comparison lists. I honestly don't blame them and trust me this will be the only comparison list I'll ever make. If you disagree with me that's fine just don't be a douche about it.

The Top Ten

1 Better instrumentation

I'm sorry, but this list is just a big fat no. Almost everything on this list applies more to Stone Temple Pilots than it does Nirvana. Scott Weiland had a much more diverse vocal range than Kurt. Just listen to his vocals on Core and Purple, then compare them to the vocals on Tiny Music. It practically sounds like a different singer, that's how wide Scott's Vocal range is. Also, STP is far more creative, incorporating elements of psychedelia, and experimenting much more than Nirvana. Sure, Nirvana is more raw, but STP has much more grand and lush production. If you prefer Nirvana, that's fine, I love Nirvana as well. But almost every reason on this list can apply to STP even more so. - mtndewlord

The instrumentation in Nirvana surpasses this band by quite a lot. - SomePersonYouHate

2 Better vocals

When comparing the two bands Scott Weiland isn't that good of a singer and Kurt sings better than him. - SomePersonYouHate

3 Better lyrics

" Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice" Vs. " Where ya going for tomorrow?
Where ya going with that mask I found?
And I feel, and I feel
When the dogs begin to smell her
Will she smell alone? " It's pretty obvious which one is better. - SomePersonYouHate

4 Nirvana is more talented

In just about every aspect. - SomePersonYouHate

5 Plush is one of the most mediocre songs ever made

SLTS is mediocre to but if given the chance to listen to either one I'll take SLTS over Plush. - SomePersonYouHate

6 Nirvana's raw and aggressive while Stone Temple Pilots is polished and dull

Especially with Bleach and In Utero their most raw albums. Nirvana's only polished album is Nevermind which even then that album isn't as polished as a STP album. - SomePersonYouHate

7 Stone Temple Pilots is one of the most mediocre Grunge bands of all time

I'm not saying that Nirvana's the best grunge band of all time because that'd be one hell of a stretch but they're not as mediocre as STP. - SomePersonYouHate

8 Kurt Cobain was more creative than Scott Weiland

Even though Nirvana's overrated Kurt is more creative compared to Scott Weiland. - SomePersonYouHate

9 Scott Weiland is a average and mediocre singer

Both singers are mediocre but Kurt sounds less mediocre when compared to Scott Weiland. - SomePersonYouHate

10 Nirvana's better live

Not the biggest reason and kind of weak compared to the other reasons. - SomePersonYouHate

The Contenders

11 Nirvana has more good albums

The only decent Stone Temple Pilots album in my opinion was High Rise, everything else bores me to pieces. Plus Bleach and In Utero are better than half of their damn discrography. - CaptainMowzker
