This is a touchy subject, and needs to be handled with care. i posted a similar thread on another forum, and was greeted with death threats, so please dont. I love nirvana, and i view kurt cobain as a god, but do you think they are over rated? They wern't the only band of their genre at the time, (although they did do it better than the rest). I get the impression that most people already have them down as imortal gods before they even hear the music, so you dont get an objective opinion. I think if kurt cobain hadn't died (and we all know courtney love was responsible for that) then after a while, once all the hype had died down, they would have been "just another good band", like RATM or something. I have spoken to a lot of people who saw them live, and most of them said that they sucked live. Some of their music was genious, but i dont think it was imortal (unlike kurt cobain who clearly was imortal).
(p.s no death threats please)
