In the late 1980s, Nirvana established itself as part of the Seattle grunge scene with a sound that relied on dynamic contrasts, often between quiet verses and loud, heavy choruses. Nirvana's success widely popularized alternative rock as a whole, and the band's front man Cobain found himself referred to in the media as the "spokesman of a generation", with Nirvana being considered the "flagship band" of Generation X.

 

Nirvana's active career ended following the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994. Since its debut, the band has sold over 25 million records in the United States alone, and over 75 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time. Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, in its first year of eligibility.

 

Nirvana recorded their cover of “Turn Around” by Devo on October 21, 1990 for BBC Radio 1 with John Peel and the song was included on the 1992 Insecticide album.
