Nirvana: The Complete Illustrated History (Hardcover)
Nirvana: The Complete Illustrated History tells the fully illustrated story of the band that spoke for Generation X in the ’90s.
Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl, and Krist Novoselic comprised Nirvana, the band that unintentionally tore the music world asunder with the 1991 album Nevermind. The record that includes hits such as “Smells like Teen Spirit,” “Come as You Are,” and “Lithium” continues to rattle speakers with grunge that truly rocks.
Here we are, over three decades after Nirvana irrevocably changed rock and roll, and the band is as relevant and influential as ever. Nirvana reveals the band’s history with fresh eyes, telling the story of a group that instigated a return to punk-inspired rock.
This edition of the complete illustrated history of the immortal grunge Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee features:
- The writing of a sparkling team of grunge-rock experts and word slingers
- Performance and backstage photography
- Handbills, singles, ticket stubs, gig posters, and other memorabilia that complement the narrative
- Album reviews, gear breakdowns, and mini synopses of Cobain’s 50 all-time favorite albums
