Nirvana had more groundbreaking music. 

I love Zero by SP.   hence my name

Listening to School off Bleach rn.

I bet the new U2 album will sound just like this.

NO RECESS

A couple of bands I grew up listening to.  This is easily a vote for The Pumpkins though.

Pretty equal and don't know the work of either beyond the obvious hits. I was going to vote for Nirvana but then remembered they appear to have nicked the Come As You Are riff from The Dammed, so went with the Pumpkins.

Punpkins are the band i return to more often.

Siamese Dream is superb. I also adore "Adore" - despite it being somewhat maligned in their cannon.

In Utero is great too mind....But Pumpkins edge it for me.

Tough call. Nirvana were certainly more influential but the Pumpkins obviously have had more longevity and have put out some stellar albums. I went with SP.

Nirvana.

Never was a big Pumpkins fan.

Maybe itís my loss.

If there's a tie maybe we should consider who won more Grammy's?
