Nirvana or Alice in Chains ?

Personally , Nirvana has been my favorite band since I was 14. They revolutionized music and put "Grunge" in the genre . Cobains lyrics are un matched but AIC is roughly my second . Layne staley was a great front man and Cantrell had great riffs who do you prefer and why ?

    Alice in Chains BY FAR.

    Nirvana is very dull music, especially when you're playing it on guitar, its the same few notes over and over.

    Not only that, but there is a lot more influence in AiC's music. I mean.... way more.

    And they both formed in the same year.

    AIC is my favorite band of all time. I can relate to Layne and Jerry's lyrics so easily - not the drugs part, but the emotional expression in the words. The loneliness, frustration, etc. It's difficult to explain, but I'm sure some people will understand what I'm saying. I enjoy Nirvana's music too. Dave was a hell of a drummer. However, I cannot relate to their lyrics as I can with AIC's. Nirvana has good riffs and Kurt sounds good, but the lyrics are sometimes complete nonsense (at least to me).

    AIC and it's not even close. Layne Staley's voice alone is enough to put them way above Nirvana.

    Alice in Chains. I personally like their general sound and concept better, and I adored watching their MTV Unplugged session. I have a lot of respect for Nirvana too though.
