    While I was a fan of Bush in highschool they did not appeal to me like Nirvana. I think Cobain's lyrics were far superior and more poetic than anything Rossdale was singing. Anytime you see an artist from that generation talking about that era of music they're very quick to acknowledge that Kurt Cobain was the greatest song writer of their generation. (with the exception of Billy Corgan) I think had any other band broken down the door then they would've gotten credit. Nirvana hit like the Beatles.
    I would however argue that R.E.M. may be superior musically than any other band from that era. I believe at one point both Nirvana and R.E.M. were the most popular bands in the world.

    Unfortunately, everybody gets old. The only thing you can do is enjoy their music from the past.

    Nirvana may be overrated but they beat Smashing Pumpkins hands down. Even if you think its close the tie breaker should be that Billy Corgan looks exactly like a child rapist.
