No doubt about it Nirvana were the bigger band, but which one will stand the test of time. For me Joy Division are timeless, easily a bigger ATG band than Nirvana.

Round and about
This is like comparing apples with apple juice.

No diss but Nirvana came along far too late in the game to be anything other than a watered down version of Pixies, who in turn looked to Ramones/JD as influences, and KC has admitted as much.

'Straya, cunt.
Big fan of Koy Division but Nirvana really captured the zeitgeist and were able to produce a body of work that enamoured them to that time. Nirvana had a global #1 hit single from their breakthrough album and produced more hit albums after that.

Joy Division are better for me but Jesus it's dark. Nirvana rawks. I'd "rate" Joy Division higher but I listen to Nirvana more. Whatever the fuck that means.

Basically i'd tell you I like Joy Division better but Spotify would tell you I like Nirvana better.

I suppose I'd compare it to being aware that Lomachenko is incredible but prefering to watch Dillian Whyte box.
