    Nirvana: the 100 most inspiring musicians of all time

    The members were Kurt Cobain (b. Feb. 20, 1967, Aberdeen, Wash.,
    U.S.—d. April 5, 1994, Seattle, Wash.), Krist Novoselic (b. May 16, 1965, Compton, Calif., U.S.), and Dave Grohl (b. Jan. 14, 1969, Warren, Ohio, U.S.).

    Nirvana was an American alternative rock group whose breakthrough album, Nevermind (1991), announced a new musical style (grunge) and gave voice to the post-baby boom young adults known as Generation X.
    From Aberdeen, near Seattle, Nirvana was part of the postpunk underground scene that centered on K Records of Olympia, Washington, before they recorded their first single, “Love Buzz,” and album, Bleach, for Sub Pop, an independent record company in Seattle.

    Nirvana refined this mix of 1960s-style pop and 1970s heavy metal–
    hard rock on their first album for a major label, Geffen; Nevermind, featuring the anthemic hit “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” was the first full expression of punk concerns to achieve mass market success in the United States.

    Nirvana used extreme changes of tempo and volume to express anger and alienation: a quiet, tuneful verse switched into a ferocious, distorted chorus. In the fashion of many 1970s punk groups, guitarist-singer-songwriter Cobain set powerful rock against sarcastic, allusive lyrics
    that explored hopelessness, surrender, and male abjection (“As a defense I’m neutered and spayed,” he sang in On a Plain).

    Imbued with the punk ethic that to succeed was to fail, Nirvana abhorred the media onslaught that accompanied their rapid ascent. Success brought celebrity, and Cobain, typecast as a self-destructive rock star, courted
    controversy both with his advocacy of feminism and gay rights and with his embroilment in a sequence of drug- and gun-related escapades—a number of which involved his wife, Courtney Love, leader of the band Hole.

    Like Nevermind, the band’s third album, In Utero (1993)—which contained clear articulations of Cobain’s psyche in songs such as “All Apologies” and “Rape Me”— reached number one on the U.S. album charts. By this point, however, Cobain’s heroin use was out of control.
    After a reputed suicide attempt in Rome in March 1994, he entered a Los Angeles treatment centre. In a mysterious sequence of events, he returned to Seattle, where he shot and killed himself in his lakeside home.

    Subsequent concert releases, notably Unplugged in New York (1994) and From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah (1996), only added to Nirvana’s
    legend. In 2002 the greatest-hits album Nirvana appeared and included the previously unreleased single “You Know You’re Right.” That year, a collection of Cobain’s journals was also published.
