highly influential grunge band. although cobain is practically worshipped by some he had his flaws (who doesn't though) great lyrics. grohl proved there is life after nirvana & good music that isn't grunge

THE grunge band. The band that broke the scene wide open, and placed it into the mainstream. The band that made grunge a place for all of the misfit kids (punks, goths, stoners, etc.) to go, and could relate to the lyrics. The band that said "Fuck you" to the norm, and officially put an end to the 80s.
Although Nirvana only lasted for seven years, their legacy will remain forever.

The most overrated band ever, a band that has only come up with only 1 or 2 decent songs.
Guy 1: NIRVANA FUCKING RULES, BEST FUCKING BAND EVER!!!

Guy 2: (Takes a look at Guy 1's iPod) Then how come you only have 1 Nirvana song? (Smells Like Teen Spirit)

Guy 1: Um... because... uh... I like it a lot!

Guy 2: Yeah right, I'll listen to some AC/DC, you know, some REAL music!

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"

Nirvana is actually a word used in Buddhsm that means a state of bliss and tranquility. The band Nirvana, started off in Washington in 1987, but ended on April 5th, 1994, when the lead singer, Kurt Cobain, was killed. Rumor has it that it was a planned murder by his wife Courtney Love, considering that his suicide note was not in his handwritting and he had way too much heroin in his system to use a gun correctly. Plus the gun was wiped clean of all fingerprints. How would a dead guy do that? God Bless Kurt Cobain.
Nirvana is the best band ever created, and who would of thought they would be catagorized as "grundge".
