can't believe it's 15 years. all of us 80's kids were rescued from hair metal by Nirvana. they are a group I find hold thier relevance and would be popular even in the modern music scene. take a listen to an old nirvana album/cd/mp3 and feel free to comment!

i remember the day it happened.
I have every single Nirvana song recorded (that i know of)
Cd's
Singles
Bootlegs
Box Set

When i think of the 90's the first thought that comes to mind is NIRVANA.

too bad he did what he did.
they could have been making really good music
Instead we are stuck with FOO FIGHTERS (ugh)

there is a video somewhere called KURT & COURTNEY

There is a documented theory that she hired a hitman.

Meh. I was all about the metal. RIP Dimebag.

Semi-interesting sidenote: During Nirvana's rise to fame, an article in Rolling Stone stated that Kurt Cobain hailed from "the edge of nowhere" (Aberdeen, WA). Considering my hometown is 20 miles west of there, I am officially from "nowhere".

Oh, and Kurt MUST have been murdered. He had his problems, but I simply refuse to believe he would have willingly left his daughter to that cracpot Courtney.

I never was a Nirvana fan, and still I'm not. However, I do appreciate them... Because, that's the time when I was a teenager. An era I resisted, but now, oh, memories! Can't say I at least smile when I hear something from Nirvana.

Musically, they weren't my cup of tea either, but I think Pearl Jam were better... I have always seen Nirvana as those who did the step forward, but that was improved by Pearl Jam.

See, Pearl Jam NEVER did it for me. Except for his cover of "Last Kiss" which makes me freaking cry EVERY time I hear it.

Now, if we want to talk about some REALLY good bands of the era/area...
Alice in Chains
Mud Honey
Screaming Trees
Love Battery
My Sister's Machine
Gruntruck
The slew of various co-op efforts (or precursors to) of the local artists (Mad Season, Temple of the Dog, et al.)

Oh, and of course, my favorite band ever, Sky Cries Mary. Though their sound was quite dissimilar from any/all of the above.

Pearl Jam were cool too. alice in chains and mudhoney were also good. i just wonder where nirvana could have gone musically. unplugged in NY was amazing and showed the potential for evolution.

It's REALLY hard to say... especially given that Kurt Cobain had said he was *trying* to make In Utero as non-commercial as possible, because he was *already* tired of the fame.

So, most likely, you'd either end up with more music along the lines of the B-sides that comprised Incesticide, or you'd get something akin to chainsaw grinding.

Long story short... Kurt was DONE. (Consequently, another reason *somebody* didn't want him around anymore, methinks).

EDIT: While we're at it, RIP Layne Staley (who died exactly 8 years to the day after Kurt) too. But good riddance to that Blind Melon guy (Hoon?)... j/k. Mostly.

I totally agree with you Brawn.
When UP first came out, i had "non"Nirvana fans actually liking it.
But perhaps that's not what Kurt wanted.
He didn't want to be commercialized.

Bleach is my all time favorite album
But most of my favorite Nirvana songs are b-sides
MV giggity
D-7
Spank Thru (first song recorded back in 1988) giggity
If You Must
Even In His Youth
Curmudgeon
along with others...

Not to mention, Nirvana music is easy to learn.


90's era grunge metal rock bands
NIRVANA
PEARL JAM
ALICE IN CHAINS
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS
SOUNDGARDEN
