Nirvana was an American rock band that was formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington. Nirvana went through a succession of drummers, the longest-lasting being Dave Grohl, who joined the band in 1990.

With the lead single "Smells Like Teen Spirit" from their 1991 album Nevermind, Nirvana entered into the mainstream, bringing along with them a subgenre of alternative rock called grunge. Other Seattle grunge bands such as Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden also gained popularity, and, as a result, alternative rock became a dominant genre on radio and music television in the United States during the early-to-middle 1990s. As Nirvana's frontman, Kurt Cobain found himself referred to in the media as the "spokesman of a generation", with Nirvana the "flagship band" of "Generation X".[1] Cobain was uncomfortable with the attention and placed his focus on the band's music, challenging the band's audience with their third studio album In Utero.

Nirvana's brief run ended with Cobain's death in April 1994, but the band's popularity continued in the years that followed. More than eight years later, "You Know You're Right", an unfinished demo from the band's final recording session, topped radio playlists around the world. Since their debut, the band has sold over fifty million albums worldwide.

Haha, you're not gonna get much love around here for Nirvana. They are probably my second or third favorite band, though. Just the whole spirit they had, and their whole contribution to alternative rock in those early '90s years impresses me. I don't think they are the best band in the world, but I think it was timing more than anything that helped Nirvana get the status it achieved.

I was never big on grunge but I used to like Nevermind. What's your favourite song?

You shouldn't worry about your English, Stefan. You will learn a lot here if you read it and write it (practising is good). It's okay to make mistakes, what's more important is that people understand you. Pozdrav.

I've never been a fan of Nirvana. I hate "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and think that they are overrated.
