Unpopular Music Opinions
Posted 22 June 2019 - 06:41 PM
NIrvana weren't any good.
My unpopular opinion would be that Nirvana is the best band of the 90's. Cobain's death caused music to drop back to the formulaic pop standards that over time led to what is now just this:
Also, American Idol and its clone shows have ruined pop music, probably forever.

People only care about Nirvana because of Cobain's death. Had he lived, they would have faded as every other grunge band did. They didn't suck but they also weren't as great or influential as fans believe.
Certainly he has been canonized because of his death. And they never had their chance to become boring, old, conservative dad rockers... Though Dave Grohl has certainly taken up that mantle with gusto. The legacy of Nirvana can be seen in all alternative rock and pop acts that have come since, I would argue. It's hard to say what the musical landscape would be now without them.
