Nirvana: Discography of the Moment

Nirvana is a rock/grunge band that was put together by Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic in 1987 in Aberdeen, Washington (about 2 hours southwest of Seattle, WA). The band was together until Cobain committed suicide in April 1994. Although they were together less than 10 years, their impact on American music can still be felt to this day.
