Band Name Origins:

  • As Kurt Cobain said (yes, this is a quote): "Nirvana means complete and total bliss. That is what punk rock means to me." Nirvana had many punk influences that were very evident in their music. Submitted by: adsfklj;jj;kli900u4898909802
  • Nirvana is a state of nothingness, complete contentment, not needing or wanting anything, no emotions. It's a Buddhist concept, and Kurt may have felt this way, or wanted to. Submitted by: Aaron

Stupid Band Names:

  • There was already a band named Nirvana which was formed in the 60's and Curt Kobain must have been too stoned to think of using another name for his band. Submitted by: Paul Warren
  • It sounds like some expensive wine or clothing store. Maybe it's the name of an estate in Georgia. Do you have a clue??? Submitted by: Princess Chic

"Lounge Act"No lounge act mentioned, but Kurt does say the 'f'-word, which would be contraidictory to what a real lounge act would allow. - rocky
"Lithium"Although Kurt Cobain mentions "I'm not gonna crack" several times (and 'cracking' is why some people are prescribed lithium), the drug is not mentioned in the song. - rocky
"Smells Like Teen Spirit"As this song is known for having misheard lyrics, my dad believed this song was called "Let Me Entertain You". If that was the case, I could belittle Robbie Williams for ruining a perfectly good song. But he didn't, so I can't. - Ned

Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji

Similar to "I Want to Know What Love Is" from Foreigner, I have this song and now placed on my playlist. Once again the misheard lyric story is lyric in this song in the chorus there are parts that make peoples are shocked and sometimes frightened with this lyric line. First, Kurt Cobain sang "Jessie is dangerous" even though Cobain not know who it was Jessie? Second, "...any dangers" indicates that Cobain was afraid with the popularity of his band until he had to be willing to die even though he is not yet dead body and soul. Instead, this line alarmed all peoples who don't know music, pop singers, even cute girls also feel fear because of this line and some of them all are also want to be like Cobain. Then, according to rock historian who resistant with this song that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" became a sign that the era of Seattle music has been born and tamed dance music and pop metal at the time. Third, "Flying Yoyok". Although Cobain also not know Pak Yoyok, but I know why Cobain also say this ridicule to make me stress like this.

"Rape Me"
MTV never aired the video because they thought the song was trying to slag them off. At the 1993 MTV Music Awards, Nirvana were down to perform "Rape Me", but the camera crew were told that if this happened, they would cut to a commercial. Kurt Cobain started to play the chords to "Rape Me", but when he realised what was happening played "Lithium". This is why most casual Nirvana fans who think they've heard "Rape Me" have actually not; they've heard "Lithium".

"Rape Me"
In 1993, Wal-Mart and K-Mart refuse to stock Nirvana's second major label album, "In Utero," because they object to the cover art and one of the song titles. Shortly after the record becomes the number one selling album in the U.S., the mass merchandisers strike a deal to carry the album. The album's back cover art is subdued and the title of the offending song is changed from "Rape Me" to "Waif Me."

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Beans"
Found on the With The Lights Out box set. It is actually Kurt Cobain getting goofy with his home tape recorder, sounding like a demented chipmunk.
Submitted by: Agrimorfee

Hidden Tracks:

"Endless Nameless"
From the album Nevermind. As Agrimorfee clearly pointed out, this is a load of guitar noise. Well, the second part is anyway. The first part is in fact a derivative of "Lithium", in which Kurt Cobain forgets his guitar parts, and goes into a song with a big verse and a quieter, more melodic chorus. The verses match Agrimorfee's description, apart from that Kurt screaming random words takes centre stage. The chorus is more melodic; typical, perhaps, of Bleach, the band's first album. During the chorus, Kurt groans rather than sings. About 2:30 in, Agrimorfee's description takes shape. Kurt has had enough as he smashes his guitar all over the studio for the rest of the recording. A drumming solo from Dave Grohl concludes one of the best bonus tracks of all time.
Submitted by: Jakko Wakko
"Endless Nameless"
