Cobain teamed up with bassist Krist Novoselic to form Nirvana in 1985. Establishing the combo as part of the Seattle music scene, they released their debut album Bleach in 1989. Nirvana, which gradually developed a sound that relied on dynamic contrasts, often between quiet verses and loud, heavy choruses, made their breakthrough with the single Smells Like Teen Spirit. It was the first single from their sophomore album Nevermind (1991). Nirvana's success widely popularized alternative rock as a whole and Cobain found himself referred to in the media as of the icon of generation X. Nirvana's third album In Utero (1993), further cemented their status on the music scene worldwide. Unfortunately, Cobain had developed a terrible drug addiction.
