    Asking both I guess

    Nevermind definitely had way way more impact/influence but spawned some of the woat music ever plus it’s way worse than in utero & other bands that influenced them

    Lte more enjoyable for me altho every single song on never mind has just been played to death it’s kinda impossible to enjoy

    What's your favorite nirvana song, I think its fascinating they're not even close to being the greatest selling band but they're arguably the most well known behind the Beatles.

    Funnily enough at this point they both influenced rap in different ways which is not something I would have been able to say a few years ago.

    I've never been big on grunge and Tribe is one of my favorites of all time so it's an easy choice for me.

    damn putting me on the spot

    it honestly depends on the day/album, and even then, it's hard to narrow down. i'm not good at picking favorites lel

    but uh... lake of fire off of unplugged is always a fav

    i think they're both fairly overrated but at least low end theory gets praised for what the album actually is, but a lot of the critical acclaim for nevermind was pretentious. the lyrics on nevermind have been praised worldwide for being a perfect depiction of teenage angst, depression and boredom but if you read them you'll quickly see how basic and generic they are. the subject matter stands out sure, but none of the lyrics themself do. if the subject matter is part of the reason you love nevermind, you should try listening to some rites of spring or cap'n jazz. orchid if you want it louder and heavier, honestly just pick any emo band. even green day did it better on dookie

    the production on the album isn't very good either. i guess it's supposed to sound like a raw garage band but it comes off just as bland as any other grunge album. the production it has coupled with the generic riffs makes it feel like a thrash metal album made poppier and slower. the musicianship is just boring throughout the whole thing and there's nothing new or interesting about it that hadn't been done better in punk by 1977

    always remember that the only difference between nirvana and nickelback is the vocalist
