List Rules Vote for your favorite Nirvana songs, not just singles and hits.

List of the top Nirvana songs, as voted on by fans like you. Led by rock icon Kurt Cobain, Nirvana was one of the best-loved (not to mention critically-adored) bands of the ‘90s. Perhaps no one else did more to bring alternative rock into the limelight and make grunge a household word. All of Nirvana’s radio staples are here, but true fans know there are plenty of classic album cuts and rarities that are worthy of your votes.

Music videos and audio videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this page. Is one of your favorite Nirvana songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top.

The list you're viewing is made up of different songs like “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Come as You Are.” If the order of this list bothers you, then stand up and take control by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
