I wouldnt say Nirvana is overrated, but I WILL say that Kurt Cobain was and is overrated. The more I hear Foo Fighters music, the more I am apt to believe that Dave Grohl was the genius behind Nirvana and NOT Cobain.

Excepe that elvis and the beatles change music for the better at the time, Nirvana changed it for the worse and because of them, music has truly become stagnant for the past 20 years.

Nah, not MY stuff! I think the term "ROCKSTAR" is used very loosely nowadays! It just makes the superiors stand out even MORE!
