Nirvana

US GRUNGE ROCK ..1991

Krist Novoselic (1965, California), Kurt Cobain (1967-1994, Aberdeen), Dave Grohl (1969, Ohio)

Nirvana reaches an apex with its LP ‘Nevermind’ (1991) and its world hits Polly, Lithium and Smells like teen spirit. The band becomes the most famous ambassador of grunge rock, a music style that developed in Seattle (Washington, USA) as an upsurge of American alternative rock. Nirvana publishes 60 songs in 5 years between 1989 and 1994, and disbands upon the suicide of its frontman Kurt Cobain at the age of 27. The Nov. 1993 ‘MTV Unplugged’ performance delivers delightful acoustic versions of Nirvana’s best themes and the last song recorded by Cobain is published only 9 years later.
