I actually love this band. Cobain because he has great taste (Anyone who likes Neil Young and John Lennon are good by me.), Grohl because he seems to like McCartney quite a bit, and because he is a good drummer, and Novoselic for his bass work. Certainly the masters of the 90's, and Cobain's death raises the question of what if?

I really like Nirvana as well. I thought Nevermind was a brilliant album. Tragedy about Kurt. God only knows what life would have been like if he hadn't had died and was still around today.

I am a fan of Dave and the things he works on. He seems like an amazing guy to work with and be around. He's a fan of music which counts for a lot.

I love Nirvana.  They are runner up favorite band.  They were favorite for about 5 years before I discovered The Beatles.  All three of their studio albums are amazing.  I love how Kurt expresses just raw emotion in so many of his songs.  Dave Grohl is also an amazing drummer as previously mentioned, and the Foo Fighters are not bad at all either.

 

Kurt wrote About a Girl after listening to Meet The Beatles over and over.

I like Nirvana, but dislike Foo Fighters. "Lithium" is my favorite song from them ( Nirvana, that is).

I didn't know that. About a Girl, the unplugged version, is one of my favorite Nirvana songs.

Here's where I get to do my music-snob one-upmanship thing and say that I was into Nirvana even before Nevermind! And passed up a chance to see 'em in Toronto in '91 because I actually found Nevermind (which I bought the week it was released) to be (at first) a disappointment compared to the debut. So I went and saw their buddies Mudhoney instead. But Nevermind grew on me, and I played it more and more as "Teen Spirit" became a hit and climbed the charts - even though I had to read about its hit status in the music magazines 'cause I never listened to the radio or watched videos. And of course I eventually preferred Nevermind to the debut, and In Utero to Nevermind, although I switch back-and-forth on that. And naturally, regretted not seeing Nirvana that one time ever since.

I've never much cared for what Foo Fighters I've heard.

How the hell does a mid 20's Torontonian get a copy of Bleach in 1989/1990?

He's vonbontee. He has the Music Force.

Yeah, they are really a great band! In addition to your tracks I also like Polly, Lithium, Heart-Shaped Box and, above everything, Where did you sleep last night. The last one is so intense in the end I'm always left as a sobbing mess.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Let me tell you younguns about these wonderful places that used to exist called "record (and CD!) (and cassette!) stores"! I bought it at a place called the Record Peddlar that had all the cool imports, although I didn't like going there much because this one guy behind the counter was kind of assholish.

If we are comparing to similar artists, Jane's Addiction is my preference, but to be honest I have listened to no more than five grunge albums.

The dancer in Live At Reading is actually Antony Hodgkinson, a British session drummer. Wikipedia even listed him in the personnel!

Random fact: Krist Novoselic's bass work, he said, was based on Paul's bass work.

I used to love Nirvana but these days I really have to be in the mood for them. If I had to choose a favourite album by them I would have to choose In Utero as I thought it was perfect blend of the raw sound of Bleach and the more commercial sound of Nevermind.

I think it's weird comparing Nirvana with Foo Fighters but I also think the Foo Fighters are great as well.

I sure wish that Nirvana found a replacement singer for Kurt Cobain after he died, if Queen can replace Freddie Mercury, one of the best rock singers of all time, with someone who, although is not even close to being as good as Freddie, does a pretty good job, then Nirvana can definitely replace their lead singer.
