I just don't see how you can compare Nirvana to Bruce Springsteen either. They're such apples and oranges.
"Three bands that people still listen to?" I can't stand "post-grunge" (or is it post-post-post-grunge at this point?) but bands are still following the Nirvana template in 2012. If it wasn't for bands like Nirvana and Red Hot Chili Peppers that caught my attention while I was in high school I would have never discovered bands like Dinosaur Jr. and the Minutemen that I love today...
It's all taste. That era for me is a low point in music. Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins...still good...the rest...I dunno. Not a fan.
