One of the greatest rock musicians of all time!
Friday marked 25 years since the passing of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.
Nirvana formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987 founded by lead singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novosleic. Nirvana went through a succession of drummers, the longest-lasting and best-known being Dave Grohl, who joined in 1990. Though the band dissolved in 1994 after the death of Cobain, their music maintains a popular following and continues to influence modern rock and roll culture.
Overall, Nirvana have received twelve awards from twenty-five nominations winning an American Music Award, Brit Award, Grammy Award, seven MTV Music Video Awards and two NME Awards.
The band has sold over 25 million records in the US alone, and over 75 million records worldwide.
Nirvana has also been ranked as one of the greatest music artists of all time with Rolling Stone placing them at number 27 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time in 2004 and at number 30 on their updated list in 2011.
Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, in its first year of eligibility.
