For the religious among us who choose to believe lies, the self-proclaimed experts at Wikipedia have an article very remotely related to Nirvana.

Nirvana is a hugely successful Pixies tribute band, lead by singer/songwriter Kurt Cobain, who famously attempted suicide in the early 1990s by marrying Courtney Love. Following the failed suicide attempt, the group bounced back with a string of successful singles in addition to providing the theme song for the hit NBC sitcom 2 And A Half Men. Nirvana is also a worldwide restaurant chain known for serving "heroinies" (secret ingredient is "love").

The group continues to tour, record and produce commercial jingles. Most recently, they appeared on Saturday Night Live mocking their previously anti-mainstream demeanor, having since changed their name to Snow Patrol.

edit Early Years

Nirvana performed under various monickers before settling on Marcy Playground, and later Nirvana. Past names include The Melvins, Mudhoney, Pearl Jam, Sonic Youth, Soundgarden, The Beatles, Dinosaur Jr., R.E.M. and briefly "Cheap Trick being molested by Black Flag and Black Sabbath while The Jam watches and fingers members of The Velvet Underground while they watch Jefferson Airplane have an oral sex orgy with the Grateful Dead".

While critics dismissed the band's early efforts as "kind of boring, turn it off.", opinion shifted when the band hired an actual producer, Butchy Wig, of Garbaged infamy. While the sound remained boring, it was now louder and on the radio more, prompting critics to declare Kurt Cobain the James Earl Jones of his Generation, having successfully maintained the Grunge tradition of using guitars with only half the normal number of strings. The band moved from cult (no one likes it) status to Corporate Sellout (your Mum likes it) status with the release of "Smells Like Bean Sprouts", a tribute to Seattle's Great Wall restaurant. The accompanying album "If You're Offended By the Baby's Penis, You Must Be a Closet Pedophile", offended many due to the presence of the infamous Pig Man, who was seen consuming a baby on the cover of the album. A censored version of the album cover was later released featuring Pig Man consuming then-President George H.W. Bush in place of the baby.

In 1995, lead drummer David J. Grohl left to pursue a career writing Frank Black songs. Sometimes, he would occasionally write a Kim Deal song.
