Seattle: The capital of Grunge

Nirvana have made music history as the pioneers of Grunge. No wonder - after all, they are one of the most influential bands of the 1990s.The boys from Nirvana were and are the co-founders of Grunge, a music style that has its roots in Seattle. Bands like Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, and of course Nirvana are the absolute signature combos of this genre. The mixture of Punk Rock and Heavy Metal hits you right between the eyes, rocking you to your toes - simply a great genre. In their active time, Nirvana had been the poster child for a whole movement, after the suicide of singer and band leader Kurt Cobain, the band became the tragic figure of the Grunge scene. Grunge was buried with Cobain, or rather merged with the various existing Rock genres. But even years after the band's split, the music created by Nirvana still moves the people, old and young ones. Records like "Nevermind","Bleach" and "In Utero" appear to be timeless and still fascinating. Nirvana's songs are still significant and up to date, as you will soon notice when listening to them once again: songs like "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "Come As You Are", "Heart Shaped Box", "In Bloom", "Lithium", or "Polly", too, are absolute classics. Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselić, and Dave Grohl were and are true music legends.

Often misunderstood in their time, too much under pressure, and too successful too fast, Nirvana nevertheless released ground-breaking albums which challenged Metal at that time. The spirit lives on, not only with shirts and posters, but also with the actual albums. If you want to know more about Kurt Cobain's life and Nirvana, you should definitely check out the book "Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana" by Michael Azerrad.

And if you want to travel back into the glorious time of Grunge you should also check out "Nirvana Unplugged in New York" - a very emotional album. The traces of Nirvana are still clearly visibly. Drummer Dave Grohl has become one of the biggest rock stars of our time, enjoying huge success with his band Foo Fighters. - he has come a long way since his Nirvana days... We love Nirvana, and fortunately, legends never die. In our EMP Nirvana Online Shop you'll find the official Nirvana shirts, hoodies, tops, posters, accessories - and the albums, of course.
