i can agree with that, however i dont know that they were completely responsible for that. there were plenty of bands in the early and mid 90's that were doing that such as the emergence of emo in the early 90's (real emo, not what people call emo today not having any idea what it actually is or where it came from) and the hardcore scenes. Nirvana just happened to gain a lot of fame, which pushed them into the spotlight. There are any number of bands that could be credited with that feat.
