The GREATEST band ever !!! Now, although some people do not think Kurt Cobain was a good vocalist, he was. Who else can pull off screaming the way he did and make it sound so amazing ? Nirvana is usually classified as grunge although there are some assholes who say "Nirvana was mainstream so they're not grunge." Negative. They are. Cobain recognized that they had become mainstream and supposedly he hated that. If you listen to their songs in order of which they were recorded, you'll notice how they do become somewhat more "popish". But that's okay, all of Nirvana's song are unique and just fucking amazing.
Many people consider themselves fans of Nirvana just because it's cool but they can only name one song. Which would probably be "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Yeah, it was a good song but it's been overplayed so much on radio stations and such. So go and listen to these songs by Nirvana just because they're are the fucking greatest songs ever recorded:
(btw, I'm not listing the wicked popular songs because you should already know those)
- Love Buzz
- Negative Creep
- Rape Me
- Been a Son
- Lake of Fire cover
- Where Did You Sleep Last Night
- Drain You
- Lounge Act
- Territorial Pissings
- Stay Away
- Oh the Guilt
- Sappy a.k.a. Verse Chorus Verse
- In His Room sometimes confused with Verse Chorus Verse
some 14 year old little goth douchebag - "I love Nirvana because all the other goths do"
me - "Dude, goths are gay. You don't have to be a goth to listen to Nirvana. Go cut yourself and drown in your miseries but don't dance, kid, don't dance. Goths just can't dance. If there was a gothic bible, dancing would be a sin. Anyways, NIRVANA FUCKING ROCKS !!"
A band often claimed to be over rated by idiots who don't recognize talent (most commonly Nu-Metal fans, hip hop fans, etc.) Put an end to shitty music for a few years, but then it inevitably returned when Cobain comitted suicide.
Nirvana is a great.
A band that would have never existed if it weren't for Pixies, as admitted by Kurt Cobain.
Nirvana was more popular, but Pixies allowed them to exist.
Seattle rock band that put a lot of guys wearing spandex and playing Charvel guitars out of employment until Kurt Cobain blew his brains out, thus making it safe again for bands like Poison and Motley Crue to start putting together reunion tours upon realizing that kicking cocaine and alcoholism isn't good enough to make people like you again.
There are numerous allusions to bodily fluids, excrement, and urine on many of the Nirvana albums. The fact that people would rather listen to that than "Cherry Pie" says something.
In Buddhism the state of release from the bondage of Karma
and rebirth where desire and lust have been ceased to have power and no renewal of existence will take place after death. To gain Nirvana
was the goal which the Buddha
set before his followers as a supreme end to their efforts and longings. The northern school of Buddhist teaching has interpreted Nirvana to mean an actual paradise of existance after death attained as the reward of a saintly life on earth.
2. Nirvana is also a band. The core of the band Nirvana was Kurt Cobain, lead guitarist and vocalist, and Krist Novoselic, bass player. After going through many many different name changes and member changes, Kurt and Krist met Chad Channing, who became their drummer for their debut album. Some of the other notable people that were in the band, or its earliest incarnations, were Buzz Osbourne and Dale Crover of the Melvins and Danny Peters of Mudhoney, among others.
Nirvana recorded their Bleach album for about $600, a dark, crunching album containing simple, guitar driven like Negative Creep and School as well as more sophisticated songs like About a Girl, and a modified version of Shocking Blue's Love Buzz. It was released in June of '89 by Sub Pop records. After recording, Nirvana went on tour after the addition of guitarist Jason Everman. Jason was added because Kurt wasn't sure h...
one of the best rock bands of all time. kurt cobain, krist novoselic and dave grohl had tried and suceeded in what so many other bands had failed to do...make music that appealed to a large variety of people. even the vast majority of hip-hop and rap fans can't deny that "smells like teen spirit" was in a league of its own.
it just wasnt smells like teen spirit, it was the other, more "unknown" songs that kurt wrote that appealed to the disenfranchised youth in particular. look at the lyrics in something in the way...i bet you any money 99% of teenagers have thought about being in a place like what kurt is describing...a cold, wet, unrelenting homeless existence. by the way, it is untrue that kurt himself had been homeless, sleeping on the banks of the wishkah river.
truly one of the best and most influential bands of all time
if you listen to a nirvana album, you will find a state of nirvana
Simply the best thing ever, whether it be the band or spiritual enlightenment
Nothing is as good as Nirvana
One of the greatest bands ever formed. The Gods of Grunge. They have given inspiration and strength to a whole generation of kids, even though they are no longer together, their music will stay in our hearts and minds forever.
Even though I was only nine when Nirvana played in 1993 I was still the only third grader singing "Rape Me".
Kurt - RIP I miss and love you
Krist - Volim Te
David - I Love You
