  • Nirvana VS. Pearl Jam

    The Pixies vs. Nirvana thread is a nice try, but IMO this is a better match up.
    (It's like comparing father to son)

    The both came out almost at the same time and pretty much influenced the music industry for the last 10-15 years. How many Nirvana and Pearl Jam clones have we seen in the last 15 years?! Fashion, music, etc..
    It coined the word "Grunge".

          I was a big Pearl Jam fan in the early days but maybe it's the fact that so many other bands came out sounding like them that they diminished in my eyes (ears).

          Nirvana can still startle me with their freshness while Pearl Jam grew tiresome.

            Pearl Jam.

            Hands down.

            As a band they are briliant together... And far better musicianship than Nirvana. I even much prefer Pearl Jam's songwriting to Kurt Cobain's.

            Now my sails are fillin'
            And the wind's so willin'
            That I'm good as gone again.

                One of the best show's I've been to was the Pearl Jam Binaural tour. They just seem to get better and better too.

                  Nirvana all the way... just because PJ did some stuff I wasn't really into, and I happen to like all of Nirvana's albums.

                    Considering In Utero is still one of my favourite albums, and I can't even sit through a Pearl Jam song anymore....

                      When both bands came out, they equally influenced me. And I both love them both, equally. If Kurt have lived longer for me to hate albums he made, then that would be a different story.

                      Pearl Jam stayed long enough, for me to get sick of them. I stopped buying PJ albums after No Code. Got Yield for a few days, then brought it back to the store.

                      The "Temple Of The Dog" cd IMO, is the best PJ cd

                              Nirvana all the way. They were one of the reasons I picked up a guitar, and to this day I'll sit down and play some of their songs every once in a while. I never play Pearl Jam songs anymore, not even the venerable Yellow Ledbetter.

                              Thats not to say I don't love Pearl Jam, Vs. is still on of my favorite albums, but I still get into a big Nirvana kick several times a year.
                              Gozer the Traveler. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you.
