Nirvana was a rock band from Aberdeen, Washington, that gained worldwide fame in the 1990s. Initially part oftheSub Pop roster alongside groups like Mudhoney and Tad, the enormous success of their major labeldebutNevermind was instrumental in pushing the buzzword "grunge" and its accompanying fashion to theforefrontof pop culture as well as paving the way for a major label feeding frenzy to find the next underground bandthatcould replicate their appeal. The harsher sounding In Utero was a departure from its slicked uppredecessor butit turned out to be their final album - Nirvana ended in 1994 with the suicide of their primarysongwriter and vocalistKurt Cobain.
