Overview

This chronological oral history of the noisy career of Nirvana takes readers from Kurt Cobain's first meeting with Kris Novoselic in the rural Washington logging town where they grew up through the superstardom that followed the release of Nevermind; to the mourning of the tragic suicide of front-man Kurt Cobain. In 1988, indie record label Sub-Pop signed the band and changed rock history. Aggressive yet melodic, poppy yet muddy, with enigmatic but engaging lyrics, Nirvana broadcasted a message of disaffection, isolation, and anger to a group of American kids whose ears were suddenly open. Listening to Nirvana, kids were simultaneously introduced to Punk Rock and everything it stood for. A once marginal quarter of rock music was now in the hands of everybody, and alternative music ruled the airwaves under the guise of Seattle "Grunge." Featuring new and exclusive interviews and quotes from newspapers, magazines, books, television and radio documentaries, and Internet sites, Carrie Borzilla has woven the testimony of those who were there into a complete exploration of Nirvana and the short, unhappy life of Kurt Cobain.

    A Great Nirvana Book

    This is a great book of Nirvana. It has a bunch of details on the band and many things people didn't know about Kurt Cobain. It has things on Courtny Love also(who did not kill kurt cobain).

    Nirvana will live on.

    I loved this book. You need to be a Nirvana fan to like it. But, it was a great book, and gave a lot of information. I liked reading about the little details of things and how it told you as much as possible about it date. This is an overall great book.
