look up any word, like fleek:
The GREATEST band ever !!! Now, although some people do not think Kurt Cobain was a good vocalist, he was. Who else can pull off screaming the way he did and make it sound so amazing ? Nirvana is usually classified as grunge although there are some assholes who say "Nirvana was mainstream so they're not grunge." Negative. They are. Cobain recognized that they had become mainstream and supposedly he hated that. If you listen to their songs in order of which they were recorded, you'll notice how they do become somewhat more "popish". But that's okay, all of Nirvana's song are unique and just fucking amazing.

Many people consider themselves fans of Nirvana just because it's cool but they can only name one song. Which would probably be "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Yeah, it was a good song but it's been overplayed so much on radio stations and such. So go and listen to these songs by Nirvana just because they're are the fucking greatest songs ever recorded:
(btw, I'm not listing the wicked popular songs because you should already know those)

- Love Buzz
- Negative Creep
- Rape Me
- Aneurysm
- Been a Son
- Lake of Fire cover
- Sliver
- Where Did You Sleep Last Night
- Breed
- Drain You
- Lounge Act
- Territorial Pissings
- Stay Away
- Oh the Guilt
- Sappy a.k.a. Verse Chorus Verse
- In His Room sometimes confused with Verse Chorus Verse
- Marijuana
some 14 year old little goth douchebag - "I love Nirvana because all the other goths do"

me - "Dude, goths are gay. You don't have to be a goth to listen to Nirvana. Go cut yourself and drown in your miseries but don't dance, kid, don't dance. Goths just can't dance. If there was a gothic bible, dancing would be a sin. Anyways, NIRVANA FUCKING ROCKS !!"
A state of complete and total understanding. Used primarily in Buddhism. A person undergoes a series of reincarnations, gaining knowledge and learning lessons for each. With each reincarnation, one gains or loses an amount of karma, or magical force. Once one has received a specific amount of karma, he is able to break away from the cycle of reincarnations, and enter the state of being known as nirvana. Those who have reached such a state are considered buddhas, in honor of the religion's founder, Siddhartha, or the Buddha.

A skilless band headed by Kurt Cobain. Nirvana is the definition of "overrated". Kurt sucked at guitar, and his vocals, although easy to like, were crap.

The worse part is that there are teenyboppers that think Nirvana is so undergroud and cool, and advirtise that they love nirvana/kurt cobain everywhere they go.
Marc: Omg nirvana is so kvlt.

Matt: No, Nirvana sucks ass, Kurt Cobain cant play guitar worth shit.

Marc: But it doesnt matter, Nirvana is so und3rground. Im cool by liking them, unlike the idiots that like mainsteam pop punk.

Matt: Nirvana is about as mainsteam as porn pics of your mom. Your just as bad as the other teenyboppers that like Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, and Greenday.

Try listening to real music, such as Dream Theater, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Racer X, Old Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Dragonforce, Slayer, Ozzy Osbourne, Opeth, Pantera, Testament, Arch enemy, Black Label Society, Nile, SRV, etc.

Marc: Osht im pwnt.

A band that originated in the early 90's. Claimed to be overrated bt many but I think that it's the people who own simply 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and 'Nevermind' that make the band overrated. 75% of the Nirvana's so-called fans have never even heard of 'Outcesticide' (one 'fan' simply saying "Oh! You mean "Incesticide") or even sometimes 'Bleach.' It's these people that make this talented band overrated, as do the critics who base their opinions on 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' alone. Nirvana were a talented and amazing band and, wether love them or hate them, it's quite hard to deny that fact.
R.I.P. Nirvana

A state reached only by listening to the band Nirvana.

3-member band from Seattle, and Grunge innovators. Probably the most influential band over the last 10 years. Nirvana was Kurt Cobain:Vocals/guitar, Dave Grohl:Drums and backing vocals, Krist Novoselic:Bass and backing vocals. Nirvana ended when Kurt allegedly commited suicide, although evidence suggests that Courtney Love (Kurt's wife) murdered him.
Nirvana: The defining Grunge band.

Good band of the early 90's that is often mistaken as the creator of grunge. There are 2 things wrong with that statement:
1. Mother Love Bone originated the sound, although nobody knows about them because after their first record the lead singer O.D.'d on heroin or something(Temple of the Dog is a tribute project for him with Chris Cornell and MLB's surviving members, with help from Eddie Vedder). IMO, they were also a better band.
2. Nirvana aren't pure grunge. Their first cd Bleach was probably the closest to grunge they got, the rest were more alt-rock'ish
So to say they're the best grunge band ever is a false statement as they aren't really all grunge. Although they were good at what they did, it mainly wasn't grunge. Just because a band comes from Seattle, doesn't mean they're grunge.(there are other good bands from the "grunge" era that just never hit it big that had talent as well but they were overshadowed by Nirvana and, later, Pearl Jam(who are more grunge than Nirvana))
R.I.P. Kurt Cobain

The Seattle "Grunge" band that brought the genre into the mainstream. Lead singer Kurt Cobain took his life( or was mrdered some say), you know the drill. The greatest band in the world? Well that's subjective. What I might love you might hate. But we should all aree to hate the whiny posers who think they're so edgy and such music experts because they depise watever becomes popular and mainstream. Any band and song ("smells like team spirit" kicks ass)that can launch a formerly underground genre (that you claim to be fans of)into the mainstream cant be as lame as you try o make it sound, so lay off with harsh insults. And to the douchebags who say things like "Thank God Kurt Cobain blew his head off!", fuck you and you're going to hell.
Nirvana was a pretty cool band.
