Mostly kids. The same is done for virtually every artist that died before their time. I think Hendrix is overrated, and his talent isn't in question. It's a case of what I feel to be legitimate overpraise.

I grew up on Nirvana....as in I was listening to them at the age of three blink yeah, my mom's got great musical taste and passed it on to me at an early age. I remember buying a cassette of Nevermind when I was in kindergarten or first grade laughing out loud

While they are indeed very good, and will always be a favorite of mine, I also recognize that a lot of people tend to overrate them a lot, and that there are better bands.

They semi-mean hard rock. I think I remember seeing a list of greatest rock and roll artists in general on the vh1 website, and there were a bunch of gospel and soul singers on it... I guess if that's what you consider "rock," The Doors are pretty heavy. no expression

To say Slayer destroy nearly all of them is silly.

I can name a few bands on there better than Slayer.

LMFAO

Let's see, araya's voice is crap, king is about THE single worst lead player of all time, and hanneman isn't much better. They have absolutely no diversity in their songwriting. The only thing they have going for them is lombardo or bostaph when he was with them, slayer's always had great drummers, but yeah, I can see why a band with very little ability "destroy" all the other bands on the list, LMFAO!!!

Yeah but you might be a really big fan of some shitty bands.

NIN have pretty much been reduced to being dark pop with synth.
