i've heard beatles, led zeppelin, etc. For me, it's nirvana. yeah, smells like teen spirit was ok, but, in my opinion, if kurt cobain had lived, nirvana's legacy would be a lot different. they're always on those lists for the greatest bands of all time, and they've made a butt load of money, but i've always thought of them as not that special. in fact, a lot of their songs sound similar.
