The way they speak about them back then wasn't the reality. The media and MTV created the importance of them. I was 16 when bleach came out. what the media and nostalgists conviently forget is there was constantly new and groundbreaking bands and doesn't anyone remember Kurt himself saying his sound was derived from Green River and Mudhoney. I like them but there were definitely bands much more deserving of the title given to them. Janes Addiction, Soundgarden , Pantera, just to name a few , watch 120 Minutes on vh1 and you'll see.

yes, sub-pop in seatle paid for british journalists, to come over to the us ,to hype up the grunge movement before anyone had even heard the music in the uk or anywhere else.
other bands were deserving too but have they really stood over time the same as nirvana have?
kurt said his sound was derived from a lot of different bands at various different times so i don't think that means much.
nevermind/smells like teen spirit was definitely hyped up by the media and mtv but that does not mean nirvana didn't deserve it; their sound may not have been the only groundbreaking one but it was unique to them.
