The true meaning of a "Grunge" band
When comparing grunge music, Nirvana is always the first band to come to mind

After reading the other posts, i would like to make my own point because honestly, some of those things= mental retardation.

1. Nirvana (the rock/grundge band) is probably one of the greatest rock bands in the 20th century. Led by mentaly and physicly tormented vocalist and guitarest kurt cobain, Nirvana rocked the main stream music for nearly 5 years.
Kurt Cobain has recently won the title of richest dead rockstar. He allegedly commited suicide at the peak of his fame. He was tormented sence childhood with the divorce of his parents and the way his parents acted as he grew up. This led ot many other problems including him living on the streets for almost a year at the age of 15. He was also tormnted with a severe stomach problem which is one of the reasons why he got hooked on Heroin. Cobain was alwas one to abuse substances and he did nothing about his addiction until his child, Frances Bean was to be born when he finally tried to quit. It didnt work. He could only go 10 minutes of sobriety before feeling withdrawl. His suicide was surrounded by strange things like he had so much heroin in his system that he couldnt have even had time to take the needle out of his arm before passing out, his shoes were on and he would have need to pull the trigger with his toe, and his suicide note had several strange things to it aswell. But, Courtney Love, who people think killed him, was half way across the continent at the time and at a rehab center to try to get off the heroin that Cobain got her addicted to. The shed that Cobain was found in, was locked from the inside. He found a way to kill himself, that is that.

there was signs of his suicidal future at the age of 12 when he would talk of suicide, rape, and other things normally not spoken of with such calmness.

Contrary to what people think, Smells Like Teen Spirit, Lithium, and Come As You Are are not the only songs that Nirvana put together. On there first album Bleach, the opening song About A Girl found its way onto the Greatest hits album self titled Nirvana. Other notable songs include All Apologies, In Bloom, You Know Your Right (also known as Over the Mountain, Moutain Top, and several other names), Heart Shaped Box, Rape Me, Polly, Drain You, On A Plain, Stay Away, Pennyroyal Tea, and several covors of The Meat Puppets and David Bowie on the MTV UnPlugged album.
And for all of you who hate MTV (I am included), there was a time when artists like Eric Clapton, David Bowie, Alice In Chains, and even Bob Dylan found there way there.

The band consisted of Dave Grohl on drums who is now in Foo Fighters, Krist Noveselic on bass, and of course Kurt Cobain.

2. Nirvana is a Hindu state of purity. It is reached when the soul is at peace with god and the universe and only when this is reached, can the person stop the process of reincarnation and proceed into the after life. One who has reached this stage is called a Guru. I personaly do not believe that but it seems like a very peaceful thought. Nirvana literally means at peace. (the reason why Cobain named the band that)
1. Nirvana is one of the best bands of the 20th century and one of the best Grundge bands. the only other grundge bands worth mentioning would be Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains. but somthing that Nirvana has that they dont is obvious pasion.

2. Nirvana is the ultimate stage of inlightenment and peace. It is when a person is at one with the universe and god and can then proceed to the after life. It's Hindu which is the 3rd largest religion in the world. the only thing i can connect to this would be the best high in the world. probably mixing heroin, pot, and some designer drug together to form the ultimate compound.

The ultimate goal of the Bhuddist religion, in which one escapes eternal suffering by being reincarnated as Kurt Cobain.
Bhudda achieved Nirvana by losing all desire except to rock.

One of the Best Bands of all time. They delayed the domination of rap and pop for a few years and allowed rock to regain it's title.
'If you are either a racist, sexist, or in any other way an asshole, don't buy our albums. I don't want your money. Don't love me because I hate you."

A wonderful band comprised of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl. Had a large number of hits and great album sales until 1994, when Kurt commited suicide (or was murdered, as is some people's opinion that I do not share).
Contrary to popular belief, Nirvana was not the first grunge band. The band that created grunge was Mudhoney, like 'em or not.

Band that brought rock back in the early 90's. First off people dont like Kurt Kobain because he is dead. He didnt like his popularity and hated his song "smells like teen spirit for the popularity it brought him" He didnt trick anyone to like him. In fact his most known album "Nevermind" was almost named "sheep" to make fun of people who ran to the stores to buy what the world told them was good. No you cant make better riffs and lyrics dude or you would be a famous dead guy. Sure the bland split of years ago but Jimmi hendrix and alice in chains are broke up to due to the death of there lead singers but this will not change the imprint they left on the music world.

1. Freedom from pain and suffering in the external world. Blown out, as in a candle. It is composed of three phones:
Ni : out, away from, without
Va: blowing, as in blowing in the wind or smelling
Na: never, do not, should not
Nirvāṇa is a term used in Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. It refers to the profound peace of mind that is acquired with moksha, liberation from samsara, or release from a state of suffering, after an often lengthy period of bhāvanā or sādhanā.
2. The best rock band ever fronted by Kurt Cobain.
The nirvana of the Buddhists is shunyata, emptiness, but the nirvana of the Gita means peace and that is why it is described as brahma-nirvana oneness with Brahman.
