Nirvana's first album Bleach was realeased in 1989 but did not sell well. This is the only album (apart from a later album "Incesticide") to feature Chad Channing on Drums.
Nirvana Hit it big in 1991 with Nevermind (Which unfortunatly , in my opinion, is not as good as bleach) and the song Smells Like teen spirit. This is when Nirvana-mania hit the world and the band became a global sensation.
After Nevermind came Incesticide which was intended as a stop gap album following the success of Nevermind. This album is full of Out-takes, Demo's and Non-album singles along with John peel and mark goodier BBC radiio sessions.
In 1993 Nirvana release there long awaited second major label release In utero (Bleach was released through Sub - Pop records whereas Never mind and In utero were on DGC) . This album was a harsher sounding album then Nevermind (which is what Nirvana are all about)and gave us songs such as "Heart shaped box" and "all apologies"
On the 5th of April 1994 Kurt Cobain commited suicide (although some people say he was murdered (i will leave it to you conspiricy theorists)) at his Seattle home.
in November 1994 Nirvana released the MTV: Nirvana Unplugged album (recorded 6 months prior to kurts death)
Nearly 2 years later in Ocober 1996 the second posthumus Nirvana album From the muddy banks of the wiskah was realesed. This album was a selection of live recordings from shows around the world
In 2004 10 years after Kurts death Nirvana released a box set of 3 Cd's and 1 DVD called with the lights out (a line from Smells like teens spirit)
In 2005 an album of B sides and rareties called Sliver : the best of the box was released
Kurt Cobain often wore Flannel shirts

Throw away the cliches, Smells like Teen Spirit, and Kurt Cobain's idea of hating fame. Forget all that shit. Then, go spend ten bucks and buy them live, unplugged on MTV.
Before an artsy internet geek get's all nimbly bimbly on me for mentioning MTV.. remember, there was a time when Eric Clapton, Bobby Dylan, and Noel Gallagher all found there way onto the MTV screen.. it wasn't always shit.
Take the Unplugged CD, throw it in whatever you use to play music, and forget about everything else that you're doing. From All Apologies to Where Did You Sleep Last Night, you will be blown away.
Honest to god, that eerie tingle in Cobain's voice will make you wonder how you've lived without hearing this album. Do yourself a favour, sober up and go to the record store. Buy it, and thank me.
Also, don't do heroin. Not cool atall.

2.) a band that, in its final line-up featured singer, songwriter, and guitarist Kurt Cobain, bassist Krist Novoselic, and drummer Dave Grohl; dominated rock music throughout the early 1990s with their "grunge" sound, which at the time was quite common to many bands in Seattle, Washington; before his death in 1994 which is usually attributed to suicide, Cobain used his influence to rail against sexism, racism, homophobia, corporate control, and the mainstreaming of the underground; Nirvana inspired many with thier mix of heartfelt and emotional music and unique social conciousness
2.) My favorite Nirvana song is "Lithium."
