Grunge... not my kind of music... but Nirvana *shiver*... so, by default, Pearl Jam

Nirvana. As overrated as they were, they were quite innovative.

Also this, their reaction to being asked to mime their instruments.

On top of it all, Sirens really negatively impacted my viewpoint on Pearl Jam =/

Nirvana was a really short band... we are a necrophiliac society, and that's why Nirvana is considered one of the best bands ever... I respect them, and I like their 3 albums... but Pearl Jam has also great albums, and a very long career.

My vote is for Pearl Jam!

Nirvana is way too depressing to me. I can't listen to anything other than "Teen Spirit." Pearl Jam's sound feels more wholesome to me, and it doesn't all sound like foreshadowing to an unfortunate end.

Pearl Jam is much better at conveying both positive and negative emotions at the same time. Nirvana seems more focused on the negative sounds, even if their message is positive.

Pearl Jam.

I could never listen to nirvana unless i was totally stoned out of my mind.. then it all made sense aha. Pearl jam sounds good even when i'm not stoned, and i no longer smoke, so i can listen to pearl jam now but nirvana.. not so much.. xp

I think this has gone on long enough.

Pearl Jam - 5
Nirvana - 2

This is the third battle in a row where the winner has taken home the trophy with exactly 5 votes, and the second in a row where the final score has been 5-2. These are not great scores, especially compared to the numbers @Skeleton_Pilot received when he was running this just a few months ago. So tell all your friends about BotB. Every vote counts.

This idea was given to me inadvertently by @gh0sts. Rather, I saw a post he made in "Right Now I'm Listening to..." and it gave me the idea for this battle.

N Sync. Honestly I don't like either too much, but like 5 years ago when I was pretty young I really liked some of the N Sync songs... Idk why.
