    Metallica. They invented Thrash/Speed metal.

    • They absolutely did NOT. Venom did. Learn music and history.

    Metallica. Anyone who answers Nirvana has apparently never heard of Mudhoney, Sonic Youth and the Pixies (specifically speaking, Black Francis's songwriting style/"Surfer Rosa"). Thumb me down all you want, kiddos.

    Now, that said, I'd still rather listen to them on most days than to Metallica.

    I prefer Metallica but I think Nirvana was more original.A lot of bands had the same style that Metallica (anthrax, overkill, megadeth, exodus...

    • But Metallica came first. (As far as debut records/exposure/influencing others goes.) Nirvana did NOT with what they purveyed.

    Gotta go with Metallica, pioneers of a new genre (thrash metal). Nirvana really didn't have much originality.
