Nah, it's because Nirvana is fuckin garbage band. Nevermind is an OK but massively overrated album and the bulk of their other material is pure shit. At least with Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl has shown that there was talent in the band but because they just recorded all the shit songs Cobain wrote it never showed at that time. I still remember a smile coming over my face when I heard a DJ on the local rock station announce Cobian's death.

Yes, I hated Nirvana that much.

Alice In Chains, Soundgarden & Pearl Jam were all vastly superior.
That's a weird thing to say. Sure, Nirvana were the most "iconic" of those bands, but it's not like Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam languished in obscurity.

I feel like when it comes to Nirvana, people see their opinion of a band, not the one that actually existed. Their early stuff was noisy and kind of dumb for the most part, but Nevermind and In Utero are highly polished, well-written rock albums.

And please don't come at me with that "Kurt's lyrics were stupid/made no sense," because I will find a dozen examples from your favorite metal bands that are far more idiotic.

While your entire post made me cringe i'm just gonna have to call you out on this point. In Utero is by far their best album and way better than anything the Foo Fighters ever did.

Yeah, I don't know many people who actually like Nirvana who prefer Nevermind to In Utero.

That wouldn't bother me, Nevermind and In Utero are two of my favorite records of all-time. The only of their popular songs that grinds on me is Smells Like Teen Spirit.

As for Green Day, I'm not really going to fight that one. It's mostly a nostalgia thing for me now, and the vast majority of their post-American Idiot material is utterly indefensible, so I can understand that one a lot more

Quote to first sentence: correct

Quote to second sentence: heck yea!!!

And to the Nirvana stuff,I don't like them because Kurt Cobain sang songs about hating life and their stage show was not what show should be,basically they weren't about having fun,witch to me is what rock n roll is all about.And they didnt kill hair metal,in fact that exact same year Nevermind was released,Enuff Z'nuff was called the best band of the year by Rolling Stone magazine

And yes, they (and grunge in general) absolutely killed hair metal. Very thoroughly. And the world was better for it.
