While Nirvana is the complete opposite, they favor slow, suspense filled songs that leave listeners in anguish to find out is going to happen next. Also, a listener might be able to tell that The Ramones enjoyed being famous and wanted to preform for the audience. While Nirvana portrayed this anti-corporate outlook on their music. While Nirvana loved to perform, they never wrote songs with the intention to become highly famous. They seem to have nothing in common, but, that is not the case by any means.
