When comparing grunge music, Nirvana is always the first band to come to mind

The best fucking band ever. A grunge band from Aberdeen, Washington who completely saved rock as we know it. Whenever a band is put in a catagory of "post grunge", it means after Nirvana.

Most people know a couple key songs like "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "Come As You Are", and (my favorite) "Lithium". They're the most kickass band ever, and if you say otherwise you're probably into rap, hip hop, pop, or some other piece of shit music.

R.I.P., Kurt Cobain.
Nirvana was a popular grunge band in the late 80's and early 90's. They made great music, and Cobain was killed not suicidal.

Don't do drugs, kiddies!

When a man enters any bathroom, while urinating he somehow manages to Burp, Sneeze, and fart all while urinating.
Mike: You'll never guess what happened what happened to me this morning!
Vern: What, did you skillfully perform the Dolphin?
Mike: No, my good chum. I found my Nirvana at 3:17 A.M.
Vern: ... The fart-burp-sneeze thing?
Mike: Yeah ... I passed out and woke up seeing Angels.

A criminally overrated band fronted by Kurt Cobain. Though some good came of the band and the associated grunge scene (the destruction of Poison and Ratt), the negative effects were far more pronounced. Real metal was dealt a crippling blow as well, and depressing heroin rock was able to dominate thereafter. Though grunge died in 1995 with Cobain, the effects of Nirvana's "whiney generation" revolution are still being felt today. Nu-metal and mallcore filled in the vacuum left by heavy metal, mimicing the simple chord progressions and detuned guitars that were present in the grunge movement. Post-grunge rock, which has blossomed into many lackluster subgenres, still bears the simplicity and downcast attitude, as well as the whiney vox of the grunge movement.
"My generation is dwarfed by the baby boomers, what a bummer," -Cobain

1. A band that hipsnter teens will name whenever they're trying to sound cool or edgy by making it seem like they have "good" taste.

2. To be honest they're actually a pretty decent band but they get a lot of hate because of people like example #1. Kurt could write catchy fun songs to sing along to but at the end of the day he is still pretty low on the list of "grunge" frontmen at the time whether you rank it by singing or guitar playing, but again, they're a decent band.

And stop quoting Smells Like Teen Spirit because you think it makes you look 3dgy, it doesn't.
"Hey man I really like Nirvana!"
"You know, Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic!"
"....the guys who made Smells Like Teen Spirit..."
"Go fuck yourself."
