1. A state of enlightenment which Buddhists achieve when they have good Karma.

2. An extraordinarily brilliant Grunge rock band lead by Kurt Cobain, whose death is unknown but is predicted to be suicide. Their most successful release was 'Smells like Teen Spirit' but they also released plenty of other brilliant songs.
1. (Can't think of an example)

2. Oh god. More pop, rap and R&B songs. Can't we just have another Nirvana come along and save us?

A grunge band that was alright, but not the greatest band ever. Kurt Cobain himself hated how Nirvana became mainstream.

A good portion of their fan base is composed of faggot posers who think they're music gods just because they're Nirvana fans. Never mention anything negative about Nirvana around them because they take is as if they were fucked in the ass and hurl shit at you.
Nirvana is a good band, but not the greatest of all time.

Ultimate proof that appealing to teen angst and how being a martyr gives you insanely overrated musical talent and massive staying power. Nirvana was simply a decent grunge band, just like Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains, and no better, but because Kurt blew his head off now we have a group of massive posers that think by liking Nirvana that makes them connoisseurs of music.
Kurt Cobain himself said he didn't want Nirvana to become a band that every dipshit that thought that they liked "real" music enjoyed and had t-shirts and other shitty merchandise. His music actually criticized on SEVERAL occasions people like today that think too highly of Nirvana or take them too seriously. He sayed he wanted Nirvana to stay as a small, only at most a semi-popular band that only a few people true to the genre would actually enjoy. Now highschool punk fucks are raping the wishes of the very lead singer they tout so highly of.

A skilless band headed by Kurt Cobain. Nirvana is the definition of "overrated". Kurt sucked at guitar, and his vocals, although easy to like, were crap.

The worse part is that there are teenyboppers that think Nirvana is so undergroud and cool, and advirtise that they love nirvana/kurt cobain everywhere they go.
Marc: Omg nirvana is so kvlt.

Matt: No, Nirvana sucks ass, Kurt Cobain cant play guitar worth shit.

Marc: But it doesnt matter, Nirvana is so und3rground. Im cool by liking them, unlike the idiots that like mainsteam pop punk.

Matt: Nirvana is about as mainsteam as porn pics of your mom. Your just as bad as the other teenyboppers that like Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, and Greenday.

Try listening to real music, such as Dream Theater, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Racer X, Old Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Dragonforce, Slayer, Ozzy Osbourne, Opeth, Pantera, Testament, Arch enemy, Black Label Society, Nile, SRV, etc.

Marc: Osht im pwnt.
