The true meaning of a "Grunge" band
When comparing grunge music, Nirvana is always the first band to come to mind
by Jeff December 06, 2002
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.

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.

Nirvana was a very popular band. They specialized in Grunge rock, with Kurt Cobain on vocals. Kurt Cobain formed the band when he was a teen, where he found himself sleeping under a bridge most of his nights. It was under that bridge the first Nirvana songs where born.
Nirvana wrote several popular songs. After Kurts suicide, the other band members formed "The Foo Fighters."

1)Exctinction of suffering.

2)A rock band of the early 90's.

3)Many people say how they aren't the best band ever but claim they are more talented than bands such as: Alice in Chains, Sound Garden, Pearl Jam, , Faith No More, Guns N' Roses, Queensryche, etc. which were all by far more talented than Nirvana.

4)I am an Alice in Chains/Pearl Jam fan, that doesn't mean I have to hate Nirvana just because they were more famous. I actually used to be a very big fan until I heard AiC/PJ.

5) Possibly the most overrated band of all time, along with Pearl Jam, which overshadowed more talented acts like Alice in Chains.

Nirvana were a band that played alternative or "grunge" music in the early 1990s. An alright band, but highly overrated.
There's nothing that Nirvana did that bands like Sonic Youth and Pixies didn't do before them.

A highly overrated band, that became famous in 1991 with their highly overplayed song, "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
Nirvana is not as good as everyone thinks.
