Sorry but... Nirvana popularized grunge. Pearl Jam = wannabe Nirvana. They are pretty close though but I prefer Nirvana.

I don't think anyone would claimed they didn't. Buuuut popularizing something doesn't make you the best in your genre. In fact, I believe they were growing less popular before Cobain's death. I think someone else mentioned it as well.

I mentioned it earlier. I'm actually a little scared. I don't think we've agreed on something before. :-o At least not when it came to the BoC.

Popular =/= Good.

In Utero was deliberately uncommercial.

Nirvana's Unplugged is their best album imo. Only thing of theirs I bother to listen to anymore. As for In Utero not being commercial. I'm pretty sure they made quite a few changes to the cover art as well as changing the name on the back to Waif Me, so it could get more widespread distribution.
