I'm not a huge Nirvana fan, but I don't understand all this hate.  They paved the way for so many rock artists and revolutionized the grunge aspect of rock.  They opened the doors to rock bands such as Pearl Jam, Alice n Chains, Bush, and so so so many more.  Kurt Cobain or Nirvana may not be one the most talneted rock artists/bands, but they do deserve a helluva lot respect and I have no problem with their album being that hight.  however, not higher than U2...lol

I couldn't have put it better myself.

Nirvana are hardly the greatest, but they did alot for music.

People should remember that.

And they've done some pretty decent tunes too. There's more than just the 'overrated' Smells Like Teen Spirit, or Nevermind.  ;)

I don't care what Rolling Stone says...Achtung Baby is number one on my list, and that's all that matters to me.

For some strange reason U2 are always underrated on top album lists but always rate highly on top song lists. In general Rolling Stone lists are a joke but I agree with most of the top 10. In my opinion Achtung Baby should always be in the top 10 on any list of the top albums.

30 years from now, several U2 albums will be near the top, the fact that they are still making relevant music hurts them on these nostalgia lists.

The only U2 album which is significantly underrated is Actung Baby.
