A band from the 90's. Don't give me shit for this but really, they weren't the apitamy of grunge. Most people now who listen to them only know a few songs, which pisses me off and start buying some hot topic crap hoodie or something. Seriously, listen to some of their other songs except for the hits. Personally, I think some of them are better on the cd thgan the singles or whatever they were.

a strange eastern religious state of euphoria reached when you blow out the back of your head via a shotgun blast to the mouth (DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME,heh-heh!!)

a pretty decent band which alot of fags like to badmouth while talking up how great the red hot chili peppers and guns and roses are
Nirvana is far superior to gnr and prolly a little better than RHCP just for the mere fact that they weren't flamboyantly gay male street prostitutes from Hollywood California.
And because they were a little more rocking.

Nirvana is the best person ever. If you ever find a Nirvana don't mess things up. She usually and might just so happen to have long black hair. She will have brown eyes. Nirvanas tend to be beautiful! She is happy and outgoing. But if you get on her bad side there is no going back to happy.
Nirvana is my best friend!!!!

Kurt Cobain did not fucking commit suicide. Damnit. Courtney Love murdered him. Think about it. Kurt had 3X the lethal amount of heroin in his bloodstream. But yet, He apparently shot himself in the roof of his mouth. Ok, yea. If you overdose on heroin, theres no way you can do that. So um, my conclusion: Courtney Love should burn in the deepest pits of hell. k.thnks. : And yes, I am a huge NIRVANA FAN. If you want to get to know me, add me on myspace.

noun: A Seattle-based band that came to the forefront of popular music with it's 1991 smash-hit Smells Like Teen Spirit. The song became so huge that Kurt Cobain himself began to hate the song and the fame it brought him. Throughout the band's lifespan, Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic were the core members, going through a few drummers before joining up with drummer Dave Grohl (Also well known as guitarist and singer from Foo Fighters)before recording Nevermind, and sticking with Grohl for the rest of the band's career. The group was disbanded in 1994 after Cobain's death, an apparent suicide, though to this day there are many people who believe Cobain was murdered.

verb: to smash something to the point where it is no longer completely functional (to Nirvana something)
noun: Nirvana remains today one of the most inspirational bands to many teenagers and young people.

verb: "Haha, we Nirvana'd Gavin's guitar other night, it was great."

(Terribly overblown in terms of creedance to originality)

Nirvana's "trademark" flannel shirts and faded jeans had been worn for years by the "headbangers" who listened to hard rock and heavy metal music. Even in their performance, Nirvana just copied everthing that had gone before;

1. Rebellious cynicism? Rock stars had been doing that for years; it was part of the job.

#2 Smashing their guitars at the end of the performance? Pete Townshend was doing that in 1965.

#3 Cobain's self-destructive tendencies? (Not to make light of this, but) it was the oldest trick in rock music. He even committed suicide at twenty-seven(the same age that Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and numerous other rock stars died). A tragedy--one that made him a "rock martyr"-- but not exactly original. #4 "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was never supposed to be profound as most of his fans assumed. The title came after a woman told Cobain that he had the odor of Teen Spirit deodorant. "I thought she was saying I was a person who could inspire," he recalled, "and it turns out she just meant that I smelled like the deodorant".

Granted, the song still had the sort of melody you could find yourself humming on the bus. Then again, I could say the same thing about Paul Evans's awesome 1959 paean to melancholy and sexual frusturation, "Seven Little Girls"(Sitting in the Back Seat)."

Is that treated with the same misplaced reverence? I don't think so!
Thing 1 : "Grunge was the sound of a generation! Nirvana was the band of a generation! And Kurt Cobain was the voice of a generation! There was nothing else like them evarrrr!!!

Ting 2: "Huh? Grunge was an amalgamation of punk, heavy metal, and melodic-pop(so basically an assortment of previously conceived music stylings *just add water and stir*)(same with Nirvana, since it's considered a "shining beacon of all things Grunge). And Cobain? A drug-addled cynic that suffered from clinical mental-afflictions who trashed his instruments after performances and committed suicide at age 27, yeah, that sounds NOTHING LIKE ANY ROCK-STAR EVER *rolls-eyes*
