Nirvana.

Nirvana and The Doors are the only two bands I like from this list, and I don't even like The Doors that much.

The Velvet Underground are awesome and so are Nirvana. I can't pick one or the other. The other two I don't care for.

Velvet Underground are the more important band, the more inventive band musically, the most influential. Nirvana are probably the next along in terms of influence, importance and general musical fuckin' rad-ness. The Doors are the better band, the better collective in the classical sense of the word and of what a rock band is and Jefferson are just a really really good band.

To me though, The Doors, VU and Nirvana are evens in terms of how much i love them personally...but VU are head and shoulders above the rest in an overall sense.

Lou Reed was the best songwriter out of those bands. I think he liked Cobain because they played with guitar feedback and prob. would've collaborated at some point.

I think the "VU most influential" thing got played up a bit too much, Bowie helped get interest in Reed as a solo artist and namedropped VU. Loaded was a minor hit, but people love the "Rock and Roll Animal" version of "Sweet Jane", and that's waht got played on the radio. in the ZIggy days. Jimi's feedback definitely factored into VU, otherwise why would Lou Reed be interviewed in the Hendrix doc?

I think a lot of people say it cuz it's the thing to say but just as many people say it with a full understanding of the history behind that influence and how far reaching it truly was.

To me, VU were two very different bands with and without John in the group. John and Sterling should get more credit on what they did in the band, that's all Lou's doing.

I think all four groups are overrated and Nirvana is especially overrated; but if i had to choose I'd choose Nirvana. :awesomeface:

Oh n Jim Morrison has the best voice by miles out these four bands but he just didn't have a good band around him. He would've been fucking great if he had himself a blues guitar player like Eric Clapton or a Jeff Beck; heck even Hendrix would fit with Morrison.

Probably just my eyes...don't look like her though. Looks like Edie if anyone, especially the second one. Not saying it's not her, it's probably just me. Not in the picture, i mean it's probably just me imaginings things, me in the picture would just be grotesque :lol:
