Kurt Cobain vs. Tupac Shakur: Who defined the '90s?

Who had the more worthy rival?

Despite the fact that he once got into an altercation with Guns ‘N Roses frontman Axl Rose, Cobain was most often compared to Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder. Vedder, probably the most imitated rock vocalist of the 1990s, was charismatic and outspoken on social issues and his band was often portrayed as the more classic rock-influenced yin to Nirvana’s punk-esque yang. 2Pac infamously feuded with the Notorious B.I.G., one of the most gifted hip-hop lyricists of all-time. Biggie was capable of amazingly vivid storytelling, rich with detail and nuance–and could go from humorous anecdotes one minute to shockingly dark tales of street life the next.

Advantage: Shakur
