Voted one of the Five Worst Bands of the ’90s by Rolling Stone readers in 2013, Nirvana made what BBC listeners in 2005 considered to be the most overrated album ever, Nevermind. So, it’s not even up to us, the results are in and Nirvana sucks!
You know we have problems with Kurt Cobain being one of the most heralded “songwriters” of the slacker generation. (He’s not even a songwriter, let alone a good one.) You know we have problems with Nirvana biting their sound from better bands. You know we have problems with this whole 27 Club suicide death cult self-selected martyr thing.
But Nirvana was merely a symptom of a much larger problem: grunge. A truly awful cacophony – and dangerous, too! It’s quite possible that grunge killed more people than gangster rap. Anyway, you’re already pissed off about us making this episode, so you may as well listen to it now.
