You can clearly hear the influence in todays......."music".

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.

**** yes..i swear to god ive heard many songs based on the one nirvana song, (cant reemember to damn name), but anyways it goes "We can plant a house, we can build a tree, i dont even care, we can do all three"

it would be pretty hard to agrue otherwise, in one way its great because it killed the exess of crappy eighties bands that copied each other, (that scene was in a sorry state of affairs), but in a very bad way we have all these crappy post grunge bands like seether and stuff making simple music without the sincerity of nirvana

i dont think influenced is a strong enuf word, todays "music" is mad up of a bunch mini nirvana's that all think there the sh*t , but in reality the mastered [power]cord progressions, and screaming off key, and being carbon copys of every other pop band out there!

ANTI-POP!

ps...not to say nirvana was'nt good, cuz i love them, but we dont need 2000 nirvanas.

they have influenced everyone though.... everyone from 1991 onwards in some way. just like Chuck Berry etc influenced everyone in some way from the '50's onwards. Like it or not your all influenced in some way by people like these

nirvana was great. kurt had a unique vocal style, and was pretty much a master of the pixies loud / soft dynamic changes and catchy pop hooks.
the problem is that whiney wanna-be punk bands try to copy the guitar parts, and people who can't actually sing try to copy the vocal style, but end up sounding like ****.

i think nirvana was great though. kurts work definately isn't overrated, its just that he had a different style. example; for technique i'd straight away say some shredder. for emotion i'd say some bluesman. but he could do something that (in my opinion) only tony iommi could match him at. he could consistently write great, catchy riffs.
basically, he's not overrated, its just how most people think of the phrase "great guitarist"
