Nirvana Rock Grunge

Nirvana is a band that was best known for being led by Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl. That, and, kicking off grunge. Or, in our view, killing hair metal.


Formed in Aberdeen, Washington, Nirvana released three studio albums - Bleach (1989), Nevermind (1991), In Utero (1993) - before disbanding following the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994. The band has been cited as one of the most influential bands of all time for their music and impact on culture.
