The iconic Seattle trio's top 10 Alternative Songs chart triumphs.
Nirvana didn't invent alternative rock, but they were one of the bands foremost in bringing it to the masses. The Seattle trio had an unmistakeable sound - a genius blend of Kurt Cobain's raspy voice and gnashing guitars, Dave Grohl's relentless drumming and Krist Novoselic's uniting bass-work that connected with fans in a hail of alternately melodic and hard-charging songs that would become signature classics. As the band enters the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the world reflects on the 20th anniversary of Cobain's tragic death, we're celebrating the great music of the band's all-too-brief run with a look at their 10 biggest hits on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart.
