    Nirvana-never really got it. Kurt is incoherent. An average guitar player. Dave Grohl is the only bright spot.
    Radiohead- never could get into them. I like a handful of songs, listen to OK Computer many times and just not my cup of tea.

    Nirvana made some good music, but I agree that they were blown into the sky after Kurt's death.

    Radiohead...I can't get my head around them either for the most part, but I do respect them for what they've achieved. Also, listening to Pablo Honey (Which I'm slowly, slowly liking) it's easy to hear how ahead of their time they were back then. It sounds like it was released last year IMO when it's actually from 1993.

    I've also never been able to see the appeal of Soundgarden, maybe they're just not for me, for whatever reason.

    Yup...bands that I don't get...well it's just because I don't get it..so maybe there is something wrong with me. :heheh:

    All kidding aside....all bands are good and worthy. It's what the listener is taking from it, what they allow themselves to understand.

    Sometimes they don't get the joke, the serious subject matters, or at times the fun some artists put across.

    It's not a crime to not like an artist or a band as long as we realize that in rock and roll...everyone does something a bit different or odd...that's rock 'n' roll.

    But do we get it or not is a different question or does it serve our purpose. In general, there is nothing but pro musician's throughout this forum and they all should be applauded for having loyal fan bases.

    They're all doing something right.

    It is a negative thread Annie.

    I agree with Greg about Nirvana, I don't say they are overrated, but I just don't like them very much, my biggest complaint is there are many other Seattle area bands that were pivotal to the whole music scene beyond just Nirvana.

    Radiohead...I do like and consider them a cutting edge band in the last two decades, I don't go overboard praising them but OK Computer is an excellent album.

    Hmm, I'll have to check the "Buzz Box"collection for the most overrated 90's band. :heheh:
