Default Walk me through the root stuff

I haven't had an android since forever so I've forgotten everything about rooting and such. My Nexus 5 should arrive next week and I would like to root it and all that good stuff so I can flash roms and so on. I see alot of people use stock rom with kernels etc, any suggestions on what is most popular to use right now?
Google Nexus 5 16GB (LG-D821)

ROM: Cataclysm 4.4.2 (KOT49H) | Bootloader: HHZ11d | Recovery: TWRP | Baseband: M8974A- | Kernel: Franco (R61)

Best rom/kernel threads are not allowed. Try them yourself and see which combination suits your needs and works well for YOU.
If you are looking for a guide on how to root, you will find a link in my signature .
