My brother tried to argue this past weekend that Nirvana was a better band than The Beatles.


Now personally, I feel like The Beatles are the greatest band that ever lived (or likely will ever live given our media-saturated, fickle, constantly changing tastes). But there are certain bands that one could put forth as better than The Beatles that wouldn’t make me laugh and point while yelling, “That’s crazy!”

The Stones. Elvis (not technically a “band”, I know). Led Zeppelin. Maybe Radiohead. Hell, even Pink Floyd.

Nirvana, however, is not one of those bands.

And I like Nirvana. I really do. But better than The Beatles? No fucking way.
