Grunge band from Arberdeen, WA made up by Kurt Cobain (guitar/vocals) Novoselic (bass), and Dave Ghrol (drums). Chad Channing played drums for the first album Bleach but left. Nirvana brought grunge out of Washington, thus killing the mainstream like of metal.
Nirvana is most known for the song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and the album Nevermind. FYI, both of these songs sucked, a lot. Most people do not know what Nirvana is, they probably only know what plays on KROQ, most likely Teen Spirit, All Apologies, Polly, Heart Shaped Box, and Come as You Are. These are terrible songs. Listen to the albums Bleach, Incesticide, In Utero, and the With the Lights out Collection. They are way better than what you hear on the radio.
The band ended in 1994 due to Kurt Cobain's death. Most people, often haters and stupid people, say Kurt Cobain was stupid and killed himself. But, he had 1.52mg per liter of heroin in his blood when he was dead, 3 times the amount to kill even the strongest addicts. That would have instantly incapacitated or killed Kurt. He could not have pulled the trigger. So shut the fuck up all you people who say he killed himself, its impossible. And if you didn't know, at the time, forensics was not as good as it is now, and a sloppy job was done on his investigation. Also, Courtney Love tried to have the man who re-opened the Cobain case fired, oh gee I wonder why.
Nirvana was the best grunge band to exist, and they, alone, killed metal. Unfortunately, after grunge died, music changed to Blink style bands, then AAR bands, then to emo and xcore crap.
Someone please be inspired by Nirvana's less heard albums, then go play grunge music and bring the world out of this sad, pathetic attempt to immitate rock. Xcore needs to be banned, but that can't happen due to the gay ass ammendments, so please please, somebody stop this bullshit going on.
