Posibly the greatest band off all time. Fronted by Kurt D. Cobain (1968-1994) on guitar along with long time friend of Kurt's Chris (Krist) Noviselic on bass and Dave Grohl (Now with the foo fighters on vocal/guitar) on Drums.
Nirvana's first album Bleach was realeased in 1989 but did not sell well. This is the only album (apart from a later album "Incesticide") to feature Chad Channing on Drums.
Nirvana Hit it big in 1991 with Nevermind (Which unfortunatly , in my opinion, is not as good as bleach) and the song Smells Like teen spirit. This is when Nirvana-mania hit the world and the band became a global sensation.
After Nevermind came Incesticide which was intended as a stop gap album following the success of Nevermind. This album is full of Out-takes, Demo's and Non-album singles along with John peel and mark goodier BBC radiio sessions.
In 1993 Nirvana release there long awaited second major label release In utero (Bleach was released through Sub - Pop records whereas Never mind and In utero were on DGC) . This album was a harsher sounding album then Nevermind (which is what Nirvana are all about)and gave us songs such as "Heart shaped box" and "all apologies"
On the 5th of April 1994 Kurt Cobain commited suicide (although some people say he was murdered (i will leave it to you conspiricy theorists)) at his Seattle home.
in November 1994 Nirvana released the MTV: Nirvana Unplugged album (recorded 6 months prior to kurts death)
Nearly 2 years later in Ocober 1996 the second posthumus Nirvana album From the muddy banks of the wiskah was realesed. This album was a selection of live recordings from shows around the world
In 2004 10 years after Kurts death Nirvana released a box set of 3 Cd's and 1 DVD called with the lights out (a line from Smells like teens spirit)
In 2005 an album of B sides and rareties called Sliver : the best of the box was released
Kurt Cobain often wore Flannel shirts
My favourite nirvana songs are : School, Blew, Floyd the Barber, Heart shaped box, Old Age (rare) and , without sounding like someone who doesnt know about Nirvanas music, Smells like teen spirit
