Nirvana Biography

Nirvana is noted as the grunge band that has no end, not even after the frontman Kurt Cobain ended the band ride by taking his own life. Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic formed the band in 1985. They changed their drummer for several times; from Aaron Burckhard, Dan Peters, Dale Crover, Chad Channing and eventually clicked with Dave Grohl who joined the band in 1991.

Nirvana recorded their album "Bleach" in 1990. Cobain and Krist's favorite band The Melvins inspired the album. After the release, they started to tour and noted a stint with Sonic Youth. Interested to the band, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon recommended Nirvana to record executive David Geffen who later signed them to DGC Records in 1990. It was the moment for the band to record their first major label album "Nevermind" in 1991. They kicked former drummer Chad Channing and replaced him with Dave Grohl. "Nevermind" soon became a huge success as it includes popular single "Smells Like Teen Spirit" that brought the grunge sound and rocketed the album to #1 on the Billboard charts. Thus, the album later led fanatics to claim Nirvana as the new icon for the Generation X.
