Nirvana

Famous grunge band formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic (Aberdeen, Washington). 

Nirvana band name origins - Buddha statue Nha TrangThe interpretation of the name Nirvana depends on whether one is a Buddhist or a Hindu.

According to the first belief nirvana ‘is an 'ultimate' peace that is achieved after a lengthy process of mind-body transformation during which the uprooting and final dissolution of the volitional formations (structures within the unconscious mind that form the underlying basis for psychological dispositions) takes place.'

That really doesn’t mean a whole lot to us. Hinduism then? 'The ideal condition of rest, harmony, stability and/or joy.' Now that makes sense. 

Active: 1987-1994, USA
