The Nirvana band was created in Washington in 1987 having manny drummers leave throughout the bands career. Nirvana’s career was very successful when kurt cobain was not doing high class drugs. When Kurt had a drug addiction he was not much help when all he wanted to sing about was suicide. Their influence was black sabbath who were great influences to base music off of. They were unique to rock and roll because they truly showed people what it was like to be wild and reckless. I chose this band because they were one band that i liked the most so i wanted to learn more about them.

The past generations would affect this by giving that music something to go off of and giving them something to start with.  Alice Cooper (Heavy Metal)David bowie (glam rock)Pink Floyd (prog rock)Muddy waters (Blues)Sex Pistols (Punk rock)Bob Dyan (Folk Rock)Prince (funk)Elvis costello (New wave)Notorious B.I.G.
