Additional information about this, Nirvana vinyl art.

Nirvana – The Artist

Nirvana was an American rock band formed by lead singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington, in 1987. Nirvana went through a succession of drummers, the longest-lasting and best-known being Dave Grohl, who joined in 1990. Despite releasing only three full-length studio albums in their seven-year career, Nirvana has come to be regarded as one of the most influential and important alternative bands in history. 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.

Smells Like Teen Spirit – The Song

‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ is a song by American rock band Nirvana. It is the opening track and lead single from the band’s second album, Nevermind (1991), released on DGC Records. The unexpected success of the song propelled Nevermind to the top of several albums charts at the start of 1992, an event often marked as the point where grunge entered the mainstream. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was Nirvana’s biggest hit in most countries, charting high on music industry charts around the world in 1991 and 1992. The song was dubbed an “anthem for apathetic kids” of Generation X, but Nirvana grew uncomfortable with the attention it brought them. In the years since Kurt Cobain’s death, listeners and critics have continued to praise “Smells Like Teen Spirit” as one of the greatest songs in the history of music. The music video for the song is based on the concept of a school concert which ends in anarchy and riot, inspired by Jonathan Kaplan’s 1979 film Over the Edge and the Ramones’ film Rock ‘n’ Roll High School.
