Well in my opinion I like Nirvana better. I used to still like smashing pumpkins in the early days of Gish and as they got mainstream on MTV which is what Nirvana did not want. That's probably why Kurt Cobain didn't like if you remember before all of this alternative it was glamrock like Guns and Roses I started disliking if not really hating Smashing Pumpkins. Even now I don't like how Billy Corrigan is I'm still banking on the 90s idea of his heyday times with the lead singer. If you ask me I'd rather listen to Trent rezner to move on to the subject of nine inch nails.
