Nirvana

Profile:
Rock band from Aberdeen, Washington, USA.

Nirvana formed in 1987. Considered by many to be the leading lights of the Seattle grunge scene of the late 1980s/early 1990s, and perhaps the most influential rock band of Generations X & Y, Nirvana was a powerful trio of musicians who brought a unique aesthetic to a growing-stale rock scene. They had already made some waves on Sub Pop with their debut, "Bleach". But it wasn't until their major-label debut for DGC/Geffen Records, 1991's "Nevermind" - perhaps, more specifically, the first 30 seconds of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" - that they broke into the mainstream of America - not really because they wanted to. Lead singer frontman Kurt Cobain's death (suicide) in April 1994 brought an untimely end to the band. Drummer Dave Grohl went on to form the Foo Fighters. In the fall of 2004, "With The Lights Out" (a 3-CD/DVD set of mostly unreleased material) confirmed that interest in the band is still very high. Most young rock stars today will likely cite Nirvana as a major influence on them.

To be clear on how this problem works: if a release isn't marked as an album, ep, or single it gets put into misc if the run-time is short enough to be an EP. If it's long enough to be an album discogs AUTOMATICALLY puts it in the album section. It's not other users doing it.
What I think discogs should do to fix this is add a "live" tag in the same section as album and EP. Yeah sure almost every band has 1 "essential" live album and it would get moved as well, but it's a small price to pay. I don't mind "From The Muddy Banks" getting moved to just before misc, or Kiss' "Alive", or Slayer's "Decade Of Agression". It's a small price to pay. Did you know Metallica's section is 20 pages long despite only having 10 albums and 2 cover tunes albums? Every concert from a certain year onwards has been released as a "buy it on your way out of the theater" type release (Pearl Jam does this too).

Instead of trying to redefine the word official, why don't you suggest something constructive like adding a new category under releases for transcription releases so they don't show up as albums. That solves the problem, does it not?

I don't know why some people must do this... what problem they have ? They're not fan or lovers of music, this is not Facebook or some stupid social network.... I think that DiscoGS should avoid this and send them away from DiscoGS

All those "Nightly Nirvana" type promo CDr's were just radio promos. Should they really be in this band's "albums". Nirvana doesn't have 36 albums. I think they could all be thrown in the Misc section.
