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.

Nirvana is the greatest fucking band of all time ! You CANNOT compare them to Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, or Metallica. If you do, you clearly are RETARDED. It is a completely different kind of music, grunge. It mostly expresses teen angst. Kurt Cobain (R.I.P) supposedly commited suicide, sadly, but I personally believe he was murdered by his fucking wife (Courtney Love). Just read the last for lines of his suicide note ! WTF !?!? The handwriting changes and so doesn't the mood of the letter !!

Although Nirvana's message was that they didn't want to be used just to make money. If you've barely heard any songs by them, get your ass to the store and buy the album simply titled Nirvana. It'll give you a taste of their music and if you like it, go and buy their fucking awesome albums.
person 1: "I hate Kurt Cobain!"

me: "Fuck you, you probably don't even know what happened to him. Go rot in hell. You probably listen to fucking gay Paul Wall and that gay rap shit*. Nirvana rocks !! "

*Not all rap is shit.

1. Freedom from pain and suffering in the external world. Blown out, as in a candle. It is composed of three phones:
Ni : out, away from, without
Va: blowing, as in blowing in the wind or smelling
Na: never, do not, should not
Nirvāṇa is a term used in Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. It refers to the profound peace of mind that is acquired with moksha, liberation from samsara, or release from a state of suffering, after an often lengthy period of bhāvanā or sādhanā.
2. The best rock band ever fronted by Kurt Cobain.
The nirvana of the Buddhists is shunyata, emptiness, but the nirvana of the Gita means peace and that is why it is described as brahma-nirvana oneness with Brahman.

One of the Best Bands of all time. They delayed the domination of rap and pop for a few years and allowed rock to regain it's title.
'If you are either a racist, sexist, or in any other way an asshole, don't buy our albums. I don't want your money. Don't love me because I hate you."

A wonderful band comprised of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl. Had a large number of hits and great album sales until 1994, when Kurt commited suicide (or was murdered, as is some people's opinion that I do not share).
Contrary to popular belief, Nirvana was not the first grunge band. The band that created grunge was Mudhoney, like 'em or not.

1. The Ronald Reagan of rock music. I.e. people believe they killed hair metal, just like how Reagan "defeated" the Soviet Union. Both, however, were destroyed from the inside.

2. Shitty band. Just absolutely terrible. Worshipped (for some unidentifiable reason) by a lot of "hardcore" and "anti-establishment" fags who think that Nirvana was a religion and Cobain a god. Their songs are terrible, overplayed, dryly repetitive, poorly written, played and sung.

3. The reason why Dave Grohl has a "rock career."
1. Retards like Nirvana because they give them credit for "destroying" hair metal, but intelligent people know better.

2. Nirvana would never be considered a "Great Band" if Cobain hadn't killed himself. If they were still around, they'd be playing dumpy clubs for drug money, while getting some pocket money blowing guys outside aforementioned clubs.

3. If it weren't for Nirvana, we wouldn't have Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters. Just imagine how much better life would be without that untalented poser screaming into a microphone "THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST... etc"

The ultimate goal of the Bhuddist religion, in which one escapes eternal suffering by being reincarnated as Kurt Cobain.
Bhudda achieved Nirvana by losing all desire except to rock.
