The Nirvana Companion: Two Decades of Commentary : a Chronicle of the End of Punk

Front Cover
John M. Rocco, Brian Rocco
Schirmer Books, 1998 - Grunge music - 273 pages
Nirvana was the first grunge-rock band to achieve international popularity. Their surprisingly melodic yet deafeningly loud sound behind stark and unsettling lyrics reflected a deep-seated sense of anger, alienation, and hopelessness regarding contemporary life and culture. Their success brought attention to Seattle as one of the most vital musical centers, inspired a fashion craze favoring dirty, baggy jeans, flannel shirts, and combat boots, and brought grunge rock to the forefront of our musical culture. This companion illuminates the already illustrious lives and careers of Superstars Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, Krist Novoselic and David Grohl.
