Nirvana was one of the first bands many members of Generation Y got into, despite the band often being labeled a Generation X phenomenon (which is also inaccurate in the sense that a much larger number of Gen-X'ers grew up with the hair metal, and flamboyant pop ''Nirvana'' ushered out in the early '90s -- only the Gen-X'ers born from 1974 through 1979 would've likely been exposed to the band before reaching adulthood), and thus, their music is often considered to be in the upper echelons of influential rock music. Even after [[AuthorExistenceFailure the death]] of Cobain, the band still continued to remain popular, releasing many compilation albums. After the group split up, drummer Dave Grohl formed the band known as the Music/FooFighters, who have gone on to be one of the most respected, and successful alternative rock bands in history.

* BreakupBreakout: While Dave Grohl's next band Music/FooFighters is generally acknowledged not to have had as much cultural impact as ''Nirvana,'' for him personally, it was a breakout from being virtually anonymous as "just the drummer" in the background to the leader and FaceOfTheBand of one of the most popular, commercially successful and critically acclaimed rock bands of the late '90s and early 21st century.
** Live guitarist [[PunnyName Pat Smear]] got his BreakupBreakout in this band, (he was previously the guitarist of Music/TheGerms before their lead singer committed suicide via heroin overdose) until Cobain's death. Amazingly, he managed to get a ''second'' one when Dave Grohl brought him on to play with the Music/FooFighters, whom he still plays with to this day.

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 [[UsefulNotes/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."

But here's another one I could screw up."
** Also in the same album, before playing "About a Girl," he states: "This is off our first record; most people don't own it."
