Music Groups - Nirvana

Nirvana was formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in 1987. 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 the band's second album Nevermind (1991), Nirvana entered into the mainstream, bringing along with it a subgenre of alternative rock called grunge. Other grunge bands 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-mid-1990s. Cobain found himself referred to in the media as the "spokesman of a generation", with Nirvana the "flagship band" of Generation X. Cobain was uncomfortable with the attention and placed his focus on the band's music, believing the band's message and artistic vision to have been misinterpreted by the public. Nirvana's brief run ended with Cobain's death in April 1994, but the band's popularity continued in the years that followed. In 2002, "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 twenty-five million albums in the US alone, and over fifty million worldwide.

1 There's a station where I live that plays the same classic rock songs they did when I was in junior high. I'm 41 now. For whatever reason, 90s rock is anathema to radio. Songs from the 60s-80s? Perfectly fine. But not the 90s oh no, we can't have that! Not that I listen to the radio anymore anyway. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 12, 2014, 9:11 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Your comment got me interested in whether my local classic rock station (which I haven't listened to in years) was playing Nirvana and other 90's rock groups. I looked at their online site and recent playlist and had to laugh, because it was the same shit they were playing 20 years ago, with the addition of U2 as the only "new" band added. I guess it'll be mid century before they add the alternative/grunge groups to their airplay -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on October 8, 2014, 12:18 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Not really a bone moment, but it bums me out a bit that the local classic rock station is now playing Nirvana songs. Seems like just yesterday I listened to the Bleach album (yes, I said album) for the first time. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on October 5, 2014, 3:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Hair metal fans seemed to really have distaste for Nirvana. I've heard everything from Nerdvana to Get on My Nervesvana. My introduction to them was when my classmates were passing around Nevermind in May of 92. I was never a fan, but I knew of them. With that said, Nirvana boned with that song, Rape Me. I understand where they were coming from, but try telling anyone that you're listening to Rape Me and adults over the age of 41 will look at you funny. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 9:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Cobain's death, though im sure if he has seen what Courtney Love has done with this today, he would probably be doing the same thing over again. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 9, 2009, 4:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
