* EleventhHourRanger: Pat joined the band so soon before Kurt's death that even most Foo Fighters fans don't know that he was in it.

* SmokingIsCool: Cobain was a smoker through & through, but he urged a young British fan to not pick up the habit as seen in the end of ''Live at Reading''. As he gave an autograph, he happened to have a lit cigarette in one hand, and emphatically told the boy, "Don't smoke."

A {{grunge}} band coming from Aberdeen, Washington -- not UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}}, as is commonly assumed, though Seattle is where they first hit it big -- up in the [[TheOtherRainforest Pacific Northwest,]] '''Nirvana''' became the breakthrough in AlternativeRock, with their smash hit album ''Music/{{Nevermind}}'' in the early years of TheNineties. The trio of guitarist and frontman Music/KurtCobain, bassist Krist Novoselic, and a revolving door of drummers, until Chad Channing, and subsequently Music/DaveGrohl would become the face of the {{grunge}} movement of the '90s; the group is most well known for the songs "Smells Like Teen Spirit," "Come as You Are," "Heart-Shaped Box," and "You Know You're Right."

**** And that's to say nothing of the myriad of demo and other versions released since Cobain's death...



** "I Hate Myself and Want to Die" was supposed to mock Nirvana's depressing image.

** "I Hate Myself and Want to Die" was supposed to mock Nirvana's depressing image. It was even going to be the title for ''In Utero'' until he was persuaded to change it, fearing a potential lawsuit.



*** [[SubvertedTrope Despite all of this,]] Cobain is on record as saying he was tired of everyone taking him and the band so seriously all the time. While recording ''Nevermind'', he allegedly told Grohl, "Music comes first, lyrics come second," an approach he had taken even further on ''Bleach'' to the point that he said, "I don't hold any of those lyrics dear to me."

Added DiffLines:

** They did tone it down for "Rape Me", which they renamed "Waif Me", when big box stores threatened to refuse to stock ''In Utero''; this concession was made only because they didn't want kids to not be able to discover their music, since they were once in that position themselves. Thus, the "censored" version of this album - which didn't actually make any changes to "Rape Me" beyond how it was listed on the back - was born.
* IntercourseWithYou: "Spank Thru", which is probably about a guy trying to get his girlfriend to do the nasty with him, trying to woo her poetically at first and then getting right to the point.

** Strongly related is fan reaction to a move Creator/{{Activision}} made with ''VideoGame/GuitarHero 5,'' where you could play as Cobain, and have him sing ''any song in the game.'' Not only did Courtney Love sue, and the surviving members of Nirvana declare, they wouldn't work with Activision ever again, but the fans went ''nuts.'' This was in spite of Activision having done this numerous times before, to no complaint from artists and -- at best -- mild grudging from fans. [[note]] Love lost the lawsuit, because she gave Activision the go-ahead in the first place, by signing the contract stating that they could use his image for the game, meaning the lawsuit was a lost cause from the beginning.

* TakeThat: Apparently, Nirvana had been placed in the "Moderate Rock" genre by Geffen Records. They didn't seem to agree. [[note]]Which is perfectly understandable, given that most artists signed to Geffen at that time maybe with the exception of [[Music/{{Slayer}} Slayer]] were considerably softer in style.[[/note]] Hence the song "Tourette's" opens with Kurt snorting the words "Moderate Rock" before launching into one of the albums fastest and noisiest songs.
