|After the band's second album, 1991's 'Nevermind', nothing was ever quite the same, for better and for worse. Nirvana popularized punk, post-punk, and indie rock, unintentionally bringing it into the American mainstream like no other band before it.
What helped the record become a success was 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', the blistering four-chord sonic explosion that hit MTV like a hammer. They fought their stardom while courting it, becoming some of the most notorious anti-rock stars in history.
The result was a conscious attempt to shed their audience with the abrasive 'In Utero', which only partially fulfilled the band's goal. But by that point, the fate of the band and Kurt Cobain had been sealed. Cobain may not have been able to weather
