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.

A band that consisted of Kurt Cobain,Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl through the most part of the 90's. Known most for their album "Nevermind". Cobain may not have played the best guitar in the world but there is no denying that Nirvana despite what most people say was one of the better if not best band of the early 90's if not the 90's in general. Through Kurt's well crafted lyrics and their sound they attained fame. When their hit song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" got massive MTV and Radio airtime they were launched into the mainstream. Over the next few years they would get even more popular.Their next major record In Utero is a work of art for the lack of a better term containing some of their best songs.In April of 1994 Kurt's body was found. Though pronounced suicide by a shotgun shot to the head reading the articles on have changed my perspective on this. Band members have moved on to form their own bands. Nirvana in short was one fo the best bands we have been privledged to hear.

"Cooled" or "quenched," the unconditioned state of liberation, release from the cycle of rebirth-redeath; Pali: Nibbana.
When someone reaches nirvana, it means that he or she has broken free of samsara, the cycle of reincarnation and suffering which characterizes all life on Earth. In addition to being free from suffering, the individual is also beyond obsessions and earthly concerns. He or she has a high level of wisdom and compassion, and has reached a state of perfect peace with all life. For Buddhists, nirvana is the highest state one can attain, and it can take a very long time to reach this state. The term “nirvana” literally means “to extinguish,” although the term refers to the extinction of life as one knows it, not to a final end. Buddhists strive to attain nirvana by following the Eightfold Path and other precepts of their faith, and many believe that they have no way of knowing how long they have been on Earth, working towards eventual nirvana. It is also believed that people must achieve enlightenment in order to reach nirvana, but that enlightenment is not necessarily an automatic ticket to nirvana.

One of the greatest bands ever formed. The Gods of Grunge. They have given inspiration and strength to a whole generation of kids, even though they are no longer together, their music will stay in our hearts and minds forever.
Even though I was only nine when Nirvana played in 1993 I was still the only third grader singing "Rape Me".

Kurt - RIP I miss and love you

Krist - Volim Te

David - I Love You

Nirvana, the seattle grunge band that defined a decade, the band that set the standard of punk and grunge all at once. A small time band from Aberdeen, WA, Nirvana consisted of Kurt Cobain, a man that was perhaps the greatest and most demented who ever lived,on guitar and vocals, Krist Novoselic on bass, and David Grohl on drums. Nirvana made its debut with the Bleach album. It was originally printed with merely 6,000 copies, which sold out almost instantaniously. The Nevermind album was the huge catapult to stardom and included the song Smells Like Teen Spirit. In a tragic, but fitting ending to this band of anti-conformists, Kurt Cobain committed suicide in April of 1994.
Kurt Cobain was the vocalist and lyricist of the band, Nirvana.

one of the best bands ever. People can say they're over rated, and they may well be. But no one can say they hate them because if Nirvana hadnt excisted then at least half of the good music today wouldnt, they revolusionised music and delayed the attack of hip hop shit.
What i love about Nirvana is the meaning to the lyris, you can relate to his words.
So all i can say is, if its your thing then get the album but if not, whatever you do, think before you diss!!
Nirvana, the best band ever!
Nirvana a state of peace and well being.

1. Nirvana is a Hindi word, but it is not where Hindus go after making it through reincarnations. That is a common mistake. In Hinduism, Moksha is the equivalent of Heaven.

2. The highest state of spiritual enlightenment and the goal of most Buddhists.

3. The most popular grunge band of all time.

4. My name.

Me: "Nirvana."
