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

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.

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.

The most overrated band ever, a band that has only come up with only 1 or 2 decent songs.
Guy 1: NIRVANA FUCKING RULES, BEST FUCKING BAND EVER!!!

Guy 2: (Takes a look at Guy 1's iPod) Then how come you only have 1 Nirvana song? (Smells Like Teen Spirit)

Guy 1: Um... because... uh... I like it a lot!

Guy 2: Yeah right, I'll listen to some AC/DC, you know, some REAL music!

Nirvana is actually a word used in Buddhsm that means a state of bliss and tranquility. The band Nirvana, started off in Washington in 1987, but ended on April 5th, 1994, when the lead singer, Kurt Cobain, was killed. Rumor has it that it was a planned murder by his wife Courtney Love, considering that his suicide note was not in his handwritting and he had way too much heroin in his system to use a gun correctly. Plus the gun was wiped clean of all fingerprints. How would a dead guy do that? God Bless Kurt Cobain.
Nirvana is the best band ever created, and who would of thought they would be catagorized as "grundge".

highly influential grunge band. although cobain is practically worshipped by some he had his flaws (who doesn't though) great lyrics. grohl proved there is life after nirvana & good music that isn't grunge

THE grunge band. The band that broke the scene wide open, and placed it into the mainstream. The band that made grunge a place for all of the misfit kids (punks, goths, stoners, etc.) to go, and could relate to the lyrics. The band that said "Fuck you" to the norm, and officially put an end to the 80s.
Although Nirvana only lasted for seven years, their legacy will remain forever.
