    Grant it, whether you like or dislike Nirvana is cool. But simply as someone who changed music... and helped to off other genres. Has anyone really done that since Nirvana? in ANY genre not just rock.

    I do think it's for debate just what Nirvana did. Some act like they practically hung the fucking moon. I'm a fan, and i was literally like 1 when Nevermind came out icon_lol.gif but there influence was hear throughout the late 90's for sure. Rock wise their influence was beyond huge. Grunge was huge, then post grunge was huge, then a lot of the ''mainstream'' rock bands in the 00's who were big. Like Nickleback, 3 Doors Down, Breaking Benjamin, The Calling, Creed, Hoobastank, Shinedown etc. Just to name a few of that bunch. All sounded like very watered down Nirvana rejects. Nirvana was big enough for other genres to see their impact as well for decades.

    Has any artist done it that big since Nirvana? just come out and change the landscape of their genre. And in turn having some impact in other genres as well.

    I didn't come to respect Nirvana as a band until I listend to their "MTV Unplugged" album in late fall 1994. That blew me away, when they stripped themselves down and I was able to make out the lyrics and arrangement. one of the greats for sure "In utero" is my fave album of theirs

    In Utero is their all time best. Besides Unplugged of course! it's dark and murky production i really dig. The unplugged showed how much emotion Kurt could put into his writing. That some didn't see under the grungy guitars and bass.

    I liked that album! but i', not sure i hear... too much of an influence. The Killers were a great mix of 70's and 80's pop/rock groups with killer hooks.

    agreed, and he revered REM and david bowie, a true poet and gentle artist in lieu of the image Nirvana gave him. of course, there was Courtney love...............lol

    Courtney Love is a purely evil human being.

    what about what JZ has done for rap music ? or MM for that same genre ? It could be said that JZ brought rap to the people on the leading edge, and then MM brought it to the masses by introducing white suburban kids to it.

    Nirvana is/was fantastic. But "grunge" left faster than it came. Today's "indie" bands are mostly influenced by 80s new wave and new romantic music. They don't have any of of the hard/dark sounds of Nirvana or grunge in general.

    hmmm i think in a way Jay could be a good contender. No other hip-hop artist has been bigger than Jay. I mean my favorite of all time is Chuck D...

    And yes... there's 2pac, Biggie, Run-DMC, Rakim,ETC. But the way Jay has crossed over and is still HUGE in 2014. That's 2 decades he's been in and he's the biggest. And has crossed over with pop, rock, metal etc.

    My dude! that is very right. Most indie bands of the past few years. Got a New Order, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Pet Shop Boys, the Smiths sound.

    owl_bundy saidi don't think nirvana revolutionized anything to be honest with you. from what i've read and understand. nirvana actually crafted themselves off of different influences. one of them with kurt cobain biting off of layne stanley's from aic style of singing. they sound REAL similar. nirvana rode the wave that other groups had started too. they just were more popular @ that moment and then kurt cobain offed himself.

    yo.... i also think that nevermind and incesticide were dope and in utero except for a few songs was wack. in utero was MAD overrated for real. the grunge scene was dope and really depressing.


    Alice In Chains are one of my favorites icon_smile.gif i love grunge because it's dark. I relate more with the dark singer songwriters. Mainly cause i had a crazy past as i have mentioned on here. I still love happy and sometimes lovey dovey. But tortured artists are my favorite icon_smile.gif

    REM did quite a lot for the scent in their time too. Although I'm past the age of ''role models'' in a music sense. Michael Stipe was a cool guy to look up to. Him, Rob Halford of Judas Priest & Dug Pinnick of Kings X were my heroes. For being gay dudes, and doing rock music.

    Speaking of Nirvana, how is it possible that Courtney Love looks even WORSE than Kurt Cobain post-mortem?
