A criminally overrated band fronted by Kurt Cobain. Though some good came of the band and the associated grunge scene (the destruction of Poison and Ratt), the negative effects were far more pronounced. Real metal was dealt a crippling blow as well, and depressing heroin rock was able to dominate thereafter. Though grunge died in 1995 with Cobain, the effects of Nirvana's "whiney generation" revolution are still being felt today. Nu-metal and mallcore filled in the vacuum left by heavy metal, mimicing the simple chord progressions and detuned guitars that were present in the grunge movement. Post-grunge rock, which has blossomed into many lackluster subgenres, still bears the simplicity and downcast attitude, as well as the whiney vox of the grunge movement.
"My generation is dwarfed by the baby boomers, what a bummer," -Cobain

Nirvana were one of the greatsest bands around in the late 80's to early 90's. If Kurt Cobain hadn't have been MURDERED then we would have been saved from all the crap hip hop and rapper stuff we hear now.
no need for an example i think u get the picture of how good they were.

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".

One of the most overrated rock bands ever. PERIOD... How is it that sub-par 4-chord guitar playing and screamed vocals could be taken for anything else?
A phenomenon spun out of a single novelty song that filled a void in a lame musical landscape.

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.
