Music labels only care about the money and not the quality of music anymore and the hot 100 charts prove it, shitty songs in the mainstream and good songs don’t even chart

Nirvana is overrated honestly
Pedro Madeira (5 days ago)
So maybe they are overrated, maybe they aren't, I'd think they were overrated if all I heard from the band came from the mouths of fans writing YouTube comments in a video that is clearly meant to make an homage to the band, if I went to a video shitting on their style, I'd get a lot more views about their overrated aspects, or maybe not who knows ;).
Pedro Madeira (5 days ago)
+Sergeant Kek now that I re read my argument it does sound like I don't actually think they overrated, in actuality I don't really listen to their stuff, I know in utero and smells like teens spirit, which in my opinion are great, but I don't have a definite opinion of the band, I was just stating that since they did capture a mood, a mentality that and basically created a music genre around it is pretty dope, knowing from the comments how they spoke to the hearts and minds of so many people in a special way, so imo there needs to a be a stronger base than just, they are not good enough, to call overrated, they aren't and probably will never be a classic, but when anyone talks about grunge or 90s bands, Nirvana will always be a landmark.
Sergeant Kek (6 days ago)
+Pedro Madeira Stupid argument. Just because someone created something new at the time, that doesn't mean they can't be overrated. You can create something new and still receive more credit than you deserve.

enigmatik I know. Anyone who calls Kurt a better guitarist than Cantrell,Thayil,Gossard And McCready is either a hipster snob or a millennialtard.

Jenine MacDonald (8 days ago)
Honestly, none of them were all that into interviews and answering questions (as you can tell), although they may have been trolling--take it as it was and enjoy it even if Krist was doing most of the talking, you don't get many Nirvana interviews where there is much said.
CD Snider (8 days ago)
You do realize this was recorded 27 years ago. Chris did like to talk in this interview

Most overrated band in history. Why call it Nirvana when it’s always all about Kurt 🤔
Pedro Madeira (7 days ago)
+Scott Wade if you prefer older styles of music, I still think there are a bunch of groups dropping albums today with heavy inspirations from older bands. I'm saying that the radio is the Worst possible way to find less known music, because they wanna get the most listeners and only have 1 continuous broadcast channel, but you cant deny the internet, streaming websites, dozens of popular YouTube channels or just websites that review music from specific or every single genre. I'm not gonna say I don't agree with your thing against the new "artists" we got where we have an assembly line of components and the only thing we know about them is the finished product of the combined work of maybe 100 people( stuff like nsync, spice girls etc.). To end my point I want you to state a few bands that illustrate your point of view, and after you make the list look back and see if most of them are in 1 or 2 genres, because I hear a bunch of people saying today's music is bad, but can only list the Barbies of pop or some drugged up trap rappers, which never even intended to make music to innovate, most of them just look for fame and the added beneficts of being incredibly rich because they fill stadiums with 10 yos. I live in Portugal, an incredibly small country with maybe 1 or 2 festivals worth watching, and in the last two years I was able to attend to live concerts of qotsa, ty Segall, carseat headrest, bad bad not good, beach house, DIIV, slowdive, fleet Foxes, King gizzard and the lizard wizzard, skepta, arctic monkeys, Frankie cosmos, Japanese breakfast, idles, Nick Murphy, japandroids, foals, foxygen, Benjamin Clementine, King krule, Kevin morby, NIN. And that's just what I had the chance of watching, many more names were possible like Pearl jam, MGMT, jack white, just to say some. Living in a small country or a far away country doesn't mean it's not possible to listen to great music, I'll go back to saying that with the internet it's pretty much impossible to be correct when saying something absolute. Albums that came out this year that I adore: Veteran(JPEGMAFIA), Freedoms Goblin (Ty Segall), Little Dark Age(MGMT), Boarding House Reach(Jack White), Kids See Ghosts(Kids See Ghosts), Joy(Ty Segall/White Fence collab), Joy as an Act if Resistance(Idles). And Last year we had bands like King gizzard dropping 5 different records, with different styles, but with similar quality, and Brockhampton dropping the Saturation series( I really only enjoyed Saturation II tho). Edit: forgot Kurt vile and his new album bottle it in, really liked that aswell, I saw him at a local 30 min showcase but he gave a proper concert later that day to which I couldn't attend unfortunately.

It feels like people keep using the word 'overrated' without knowing what it actually means. They were nowhere near 'overrated' since they were that good. Overcomercialized? Possibly.
