The American rock band was formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987, years before Dave Grohl joined the band in 1990. Despite releasing only three studio albums in their career, Nirvana has come to be regarded as one of the most influential and important rock bands ever.

Nirvana found unexpected success with “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, the first single from the band’s second album “Nevermind” (1991). Nirvana’s sudden success widely popularized alternative rock as a whole, and the band’s frontman Cobain found himself referred to in the media as the “spokesman of a generation”.

Nirvana’s brief run ended following the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994, but various posthumous releases have been issued since. Since its debut, the band has sold over 25 million records in the United States alone, and over 75 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.
