    I think this matchup is more even and unbiased. Thom Yorke is an extraodinary songwriter. He can make a plain song beautiful and complex. Radiohead have started a whole new wave of personal songwriting in alternative rock. Kurt Cobain is knocked on alot, but to me there is just a aura, a stigma, when I'm listening to Nirvana. He was also an amzing songwriter(I didn't say guitarist) I think they both have influenced their share of bands to come, but who do you think is better. I listen to Nirvana more than Radiohead, and I have to say Cobain's effect is stronger than Yorke, but as a musician, Yorke is more talented.

    I agree with what you said about Nirvana, truly one of the last great Classic Rock bands.

    Radiohead I don't quite get it.. I have Kid A but I jst put it on i n th e background. I don't really see why they say its complex maybe I'll have to sit with a Radiohead fan and ask to explain it to me.
    Bulletin board moderating sucks.

    I dont get Radiohead either.

    IMO Vedder and Cornell are much better songwriters than Cobain.
