Freddie Mercury was way ahead in terms of technical ability. Whoever you like to listen to more is entirely subjective.

It's not even a question who is the better vocalist. You can say you like Nirvana more, but it's absolutely insane to say Kurt is the better technical vocalist than Freddie Mercury.

Yep. I actually prefer Nirvana over Queen, but I can't possibly deny that Mercury was technically far better.

It's absolutely batsh*t stupid to claim that Cobain was a better vocalist than Mercury. That said Queen never did much for me (with a few songs excepted) and I've always dug the hell out of Nirvana.

Kurt was awesome but Freddie was by far the superior vocalist.

Is this a joke thread? Freddie Mercury is widely regarded as one of the greatest Mainstream Vocalist ever. Kurt Cobain and Nirvana are just an over rated band.

While Freddie Mercury was technically an amazing singer, I didn't like his voice and I loathe Queen's music (it's damn musical music!)
Kurt Cobain isn't that great of a singer but his voice was more interesting.

That's a different question than which band was better, which would at least be something I would consider debate-worthy.

The only things they have in common is that that were male singers in a band that died within a few years of each other. More apt comparisons could have been made, but vocally, Mercury is just in a different league than Cobain.

Freddie destroys Cobain vocally by light years. That said, Nirvana is the most over rated band of all time.

I think Alice in Chains is a much better "grunge" band than Nirvana. I might be crazy though...

Nirvana's greatest contribution to music was to give Dave Grohl the credibility and standing to actually go on to do things worth paying attention to.

Freddie, 100% gauranteed.

Kurt's voice, while not being very musically talented, suited Nirvana perfectly. Sort of like Ozzy in Black Sabbath.

Mercury, unlike cobain, could sing live, he knew how to sing and he had a great voice, did harder things with the vocals, and again unlike cobain, could actually play an instrument while singing. cobain was a terrible musician who is only loved because he splattered his brain against the wall.

And you are entitled to your opinion. whoever with nirvana, its actually a fact that they were overrated. ask any expert in musical composition, and also one in vocals, and I assure you they will tell you nirvana wasn't even close to being a decent deal.

Which has nothing to do with Queen being overrated. Stick to the point.
