Fore-front of a musical movement and one of the most important bands in alternative music. The 10-14 year olds that don't go through a massive Nirvana phase to this day are in the minority.

Which they only do because they feel it's what they're meant to do.

Doesn't matter. Nirvana are one of those hallmark bands now. Besides, Guns N Roses got in on the same level of merit anyway. Amount of albums and length of time at the top don't matter.

Quality of output does though.

Well, actually, it would seem it doesn't. But it should, is the point.

Well considering that one album changed rock music instantly and permanently, I'd say it's warranted.

> Nirvana gets nominated on first year of eligibility, and will no doubt get in.

> Soundgarden's 2nd year of eligibility, hasn't been nominated yet.

I need not present further proof that Jann Wenner is a fucking retard.

Soundgarden is one hundred levels superior to Nirvana, as are Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam.

But take a mediocre guitarist with a godawfully annoying voice, detune & rearrange the More Than A Feeling riff and everybody eats it up.

I agree with you in terms of quality (except Pearl Jam), but taste is subjective so they have to go by more "objective" measures for this kind of thing, like album sales, radio play, how influential they were in the music scene.

Ultimately though, who cares? People make a huge deal when it comes to the Rock and roll hall of fame, grammys, and even other forms of awards like the Oscars and Emmys when something or someone they like doesn't get in over someone who they don't like. An award or recognition shouldn't change how you feel about a band. Sure it's sometimes nice to see a band you love get a pretty meaningless award like this, but I don't need the hall of fame to tell me that Alice in Chains is better than Nirvana.

Van Halen 1 also did that, and they had to wait an extra four years.
