I have been listening to Pearl jam ever since I was 18. "Alive" and Even flow became the first two songs I heard that made me a fan. On the other hand Nirvana I heard in bloom and teen spirit but that's it. There sick songs but I didn't like Kurts voice that much. So no debates or anything. I was reading about this in some article and I wanted to hear your thoughts..

My vote goes to Pearl Jam. Half because talent, and half because they were on the '92 Lollapalooza tour (which two of my brothers and I followed around for a whole month of that summer).
INCREDIBLE lineup, if you like the '90's Seattle sound.
Soundgarden was my favorite -- in fact, Chris Cornell's voice is at least partly responsible for the fact that I'm still here and alive right now (helping me get through some pretty awful teenage manic-depressive episodes). But Pearl Jam was the awesomeness, too. (And RATM, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Ministry, and and and...)
Best tour ever.
By the way, Pearl Jam's "Ten" -- the album with yr two beloved songs on it -- turns 25 years old in a couple months.
TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OLD.

Nirvana was revolutionary, but Pearl Jam's music and lyrics are of a much higher quality IMHO. Not a totally fair comparison though, since Kurt died and Nirvana became a thing of the past, a moment in the early 1990's, while Pearl Jam has evolved and grown.
Looking at what Dave Grohl has done with Foo Fighters *might* be an indication of the general direction Nirvana could have gone in, though with Kurt at the wheel it would have been much different than the Foo's.
