It's been 12 years to his death today and me being a massive fan decided to share it with you all. He was an amazing and very talented guy, and will be missed.

R.I.P Kurt.x.

Sorry....

Kurt Cobain = Very Over-Rated



He simply did not have the brains, literally, to handle his success.

They were good for their time, not great.

The single best thing that Nirvana did was end the Hair Metal era.

Couldn't agree more.
However, Curt Cobain is one of the most over-rated people ever.

I like Nirvana, but I'll agree that they along with The Doors are extremely overated.

Somehow we never saw Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison being forced to re-invent the sound of their albums.
Would they pull it out successfully, or rather stuck to fade into obscurity?
Nobody knows for sure what would have happened.

While I do enjoy Jim Morrison I would admit that he gets over-rated quite a bit. The Doors as a band is another story. I actually think they are one of the most unique bands I've ever heard. They put out quite a few records and had a pretty broad range of styles among their songs. Each instrumentalist in that band had their own character sound and feel. I really would have to argue that The Doors as a whole could be considered over-rated.....but to each their own.

Nirvana was a great band that made some music that is still relevant, imo. I would agree though that Curt Cobain didn't do near enough to prove himself so worthy of the praise he still gets. I do think he was a creatively inspired person though and I imagine could have evolved quite a bit if he could have just gotten over some of his issues.

R.I.P.

You're wrong there. Like them or not, think they were talented or not, their success changed the landscape of rock music for the next decade plus, and they would have gotten credit for that whether Kurt offed himself or not. Nirvana would have been Nirvana either way. They're just a little more Nirvana the way it ended up.

Mediocre band, they were just lucky they existed when they did. Five years earlier or later, and they would never have been big.


Lucky to a certain extent, but the talent can't be denied when a band comes along and changes the entire music scene.
Before Nirvana came out it was all about partying, big hair, guitar solos, and spandex. That was sort of fun for all those years, but it was time for all that crap to change. After Nirvana it was all about flannels, low self steem lyrics, bass riffs, and a "life sucks" attitude. Nirvana was the band who opened the doors to Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, and many more. Grunge started to die by the end of the 90s because people were already fed up with music that's just too depressing.

Nirvana didn't invent grunge since there were underground bands in Seattle that existed before Nirvana. However Nirvana was quite possibly the best of them. Some of you might say Pearl Jam, but I never thought Pearl Jam was anything special. Personally I was always more of an Alice In Chains person.

Sadly in the same way that hair rock was killed by grunge, and grunge was killed by neo-punk, ska, and nu-metal, there's still not a genre that gets rid of hip-hop.

I love Alice In Chain and Smashing Pumpkins more than any of those grunge/underground bands of the 90s.

They just seemed darker and edgier, and their lyrics weren't so much about hating themselves.

12 years? I think we're due for a party celebration!

Basically, the way I see it, is Nirvana recorded "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and otherwise sucked more than an industrial vacuum. There were so many better bands whose frontmen didn't pathetically kill themselves.
