Nirvana were an American rock band formed by singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana went through a succession of drummers, the longest lasting being Dave Grohl, who joined the band in 1990. Despite releasing only three full length studio albums in their seven year career, Nirvana have come to be regarded as one of the most influential and important rock bands of the modern era. In the late 1980s, Nirvana established itself as part of the Seattle grunge scene, releasing their first album Bleach for independent record label Sub Pop in 1989. Prior to Nirvana, alternative music was consigned to specialty sections of record stores and major labels considered it to be, at the very most, a tax write-off. After the band’s second album, 1991’s Nevermind, nothing was ever quite the same. Nirvana popularized punk, post-punk, and indie rock, unintentionally bringing them into the mainstream like no other band to date.
