It's not a stretch to say that Nirvana is up there with The Beatles and Led Zeppelin when it comes to the impact that they had on the music scene. It's just a shame that their success lead to such a tragic ending.
Despite only five years passing between their first album 'Bleach' being released and their untimely end, the group have gone on to sell over 75 million records, gained a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and are regularly cited as one of the greatest bands in history.
That's not all though, before their official induction, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were already showering accolades on the group. 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and 'All Apologies' were both added into its list of 'The Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll', while the album 'Nevermind' gained top ten placement on its 'Definitive 200 Albums of All Time' list in 2007.
Of course, none of their sucess would be possible if not for the brilliant, but troubled mind of songwriter Kurt Cobain. His impactful and at times silly lyrics spoke to a whole new generation, but how much of it stuck with you?
