iTunes Review

In only a few short years, Nirvana altered the playing field for every “alternative” band that struggled through the 1980s or soldiered through the 1990s. With one swift kick of “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Nirvana broke through to the musical mainstream with an anthem for a new generation and helped introduce another way of thinking about and making music. This 14-track summary features highlights from each of their three studio albums, a couple from their MTV Unplugged collection, and a previously unreleased track, “You Know You’re Right” that’s every bit as solid and confrontational as the best Kurt Cobain tunes. The band’s entire catalog is worth hearing and cherry-picking favorites is a personal affair when obvious chart action isn’t the only rule. That said, this collection features the obvious singles, “Teen Spirit,” “In Bloom,” “Lithium,” “Heart-Shaped Box,” as well as fan favorites, “Rape Me,” “About a Girl,” “Dumb,” and the David Bowie cover of “The Man Who Sold the World,” where Cobain’s emotional and parched plea is stunning in its eerie uneasiness with the world at hand.

Customer Reviews

Nirvana

Great hits, this album is how I discovered my favorite rock group. However, iTunes is still missing one of Nirvana's albums, Incesticide. If you think iTunes should put this album on, click that this review was helpful.

helloooo?!

If you dont like the classic Nirvana, then you are CRAZY! It's so great, and you know all the songs in the back of your head- and when you listen to a song that you thought you didnt know- you actaully know it. Nirvana started a lot of great music. Get over it.

Enlightenment

Nirvana is my life, but if you're just getting into Nirvana, this is a good way to start. It will only keep you craving for more, though. If you feel this craving, i strongly suggest you look into Bleach, Inscesticide, nevermind, and In Utero. Kurt Cobain's geneosity and the spectacularity of this band can never be fit all on to one CD. There is so much more to it. Let me clear a few things out for you first: Nirvana does not mean heaven. Buddhists don't believe the human soul goes to heaven, but it is re-born in a new body living the life of another human being. Over time, if this sould can purify itself enough, it stops being reborn and can finally retires to a state of being one with the universe. This state is called nirvana. STOP COMPARING NIRVANA TO PEARLJAM! They were two entirely different bands that just happened to shake the same generation. All of you people do Kurt a favor and take your Nirvana CD's, and your Pearl Jam CD's, and keep them far, far apart. And no, this is NOT the same "You Know You're Right" version you will find on the box set. This is the better quality, full band version. The one on the box set is just a home-recorded acoustic. Nirvana is love.

Biography

Formed: 1987 in Aberdeen, WA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s

Prior to Nirvana, alternative music was consigned to specialty sections of record stores, and major labels considered it to be, at the very most, a tax write-off. After the band's second album, 1991's Nevermind, nothing was ever quite the same, for better and for worse. Nirvana popularized punk, post-punk, and indie rock, unintentionally bringing them into the American mainstream like no other band to date. While their sound was equal parts Black Sabbath (as learned by fellow Washington underground...
