great band whose best album WASN'T Nevermind, In Utero, or Unplugged. It was Bleach, sons. That raw grunge-metal sound was never present on their later albums. But it's all good.
Nirvana is good.

noun: A Seattle-based band that came to the forefront of popular music with it's 1991 smash-hit Smells Like Teen Spirit. The song became so huge that Kurt Cobain himself began to hate the song and the fame it brought him. Throughout the band's lifespan, Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic were the core members, going through a few drummers before joining up with Dave Grohl before recording Nevermind, and sticking with Grohl for the rest of the band's career. The group was disbanded in 1994 after Cobain's death, an apparent suicide, though to this day there are many people who believe Cobain was murdered.

verb: to smash something to the point where it is no longer completely functional (to Nirvana something)
noun: Nirvana remains today one of the most inspirational bands to many teenagers and young people.

verb: "Haha, we Nirvana'd Gavin's guitar other night, it was great."

The best damn grunge band ever to exist. Often stereotyped by lame-ass music noobs as "the guys who did in bloom" cause it was the only song of theirs that was included in rock-band.
Me: man i love nirvana
Music Noob: I can play the intro to in bloom on my guitar, on expert!
Me: NOOOOOOOOB, go and die slowly

A Wannabe Grunge Band.

Nirvana were mainstream, not grunge. Do some homework, dumbasses.

Grunge: Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees

Mainstream (Not Grunge): Nirvana, Collective Soul, Stone Temple Pilots, L7
Dumb Mainstreamer: WOO NIRVANA ROCK! Grunge rawx 4 EVaR!!!!!11!1111

Grunge Listener: Shut the fuck up you uninformed mainstreamer. Nirvana aint Grunge. If you want Grunge, listen to some Alice In Chains

Dumb Mainstreamer: HEY!!! YES THEY ARE! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! STOP ARGUING, I'M A BADASS! SHUT UP! AND WHO IS ALISON CHAINS???
