Probably some of you would never know and never heard of the band Nirvana which was form back in late 80’s. They rises fast but unfortunately they too falls fast. However in their short journey to fame, they crafted themselves deep into the life of music. All their music were unique, meaningful and special. Every song they sing, it fill with great elements and souls. Every plug on the guitar tell another wonderful story of a life. That’s how fantastic they are.

Nirvana were Kurt Cobain. He is the core of the band, a lead guitarist and vocalist. Most of Nirvana song were telling phrases of his life since his childhood til his last breath on earth. I won’t get into details of his life though. Maybe some of you can get to know more on Kurt Cobain on Heavier Than Heaven written by Charles R. Cross. Beside Cobain, Nirvana also made up of Krist Novoselic (fellow punk rock enthusiast), the bass player while Chad Canning was the first Nirvana drummer until Dave Grohl took over. Dave Foster, Dale Crover, Dan Peters, Jason Everman, Aaron Burckhard & Pat Smear were all part of Nirvana at times.

After the massive tour on the album Nevermind, Nirvana released their 3rd album Incesticide which was a collection of B-sided & rarities. The album sold well too despite not much publicity were carried out to promote the album. In March 1993, Nirvana recorded their long-awaited album In Utero although the then producer DGC were not pleased with the album. It was due to the facts that In Utero does not sound as sonic as Nirvana which were recorded in just two weeks. Most of the vocal of the album were done in very short period and some were recorded in one take. After working through the difficulties with the producer, In Utero were finally being released on September 14, 1993 in United Kingdom. On September 21, 1993, In Utero were released in the United States. The foreign version were slotted with a secret track, Gallon Of Rubbing Alcohol Flow Through The Strip.
