Nirvana discography

In this story we are just covering the basic discography in Nirvana´s short existence. We have included their studio albums, along with some relevant compilations and live records.

  • Bleach (1989)
  • Nevermind (1991)
  • Incesticide (1992)
  • In Utero (1993)
  • MTV Unplugged in New York (1994)
  • From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah (Live album) (1996)
  • With The Lights Out (Box Set compilation) (2004)

Having said this, Nirvana is a band that only recorded three studio albums. The story of grunge´s most successful band surely was short but intense. Nirvana had a high impact career that was a landmark in pop and rock culture and their references are still common in today´s artists and bands.

A recomendation for Kurt Cobains biography

From a biographic point of view, today we have Montage of Heck (2015), a documentary about the life of Kurt Cobain. This movie tells the story of the Nirvana singer, his childhood and how he grew up. Also it lets us dive in Kurt Cobain´s writing process, his interests and origins. To us the fans, Montage of Heck is a nice piece of history that helps us to understand Kurt´s reaction to world fame, his songwriting and influences, what he wanted to acchieve and his views on themes like feminism, machism, generation x, the music industry and society as a whole.

Be sure to check out that movie.
