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 !!"
Revolutionary rock band from the late 80's and early 90's. This band is the band that brought the subgenre "grunge" to the mainstream along with Alice In Chains and Pearl Jam. This band experimented with many genres such as: Hard rock, Punk rock, pop rock, and grunge. The trio consists of Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Kurt Cobain, Bassist Krist Novelelic, and drummer Dave Grohl. The band also toured with Pat Smear towards the end of the band. The band later disbanded after Kurt Cobain committed suicide. While Nirvana no longer produces music.. The legacy lives on.
Person 1: "What are you listening to??"
Person 2: "Nirvana"
Person 1: "Whats that?"
Person 2 "A kick ass grunge band from the 90s.

1: A state of religious bliss that is held in belief by Indian religions.

2: A band that was quite good, but is terribly overrated. The lead singer, Kurt Cobain is often undeservingly held in the same esteem as Hendrix, Clapton and Jesus in regards to greatness. Cobain eventually proceeded to stick a shotgun in his mouth and blow his head off after becoming amazingly popular and wealthy.
I have to put something here.

Now-defunct three-piece band formed sometime in the Eighties. Famous hits include 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and 'Come As You Are'.

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."
