Nirvana to be honored with Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award

Nirvana will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award as part of the 2023 Grammy Awards next month.

The Seattle band is among a number of artists – including Heart, The Supremes and Nile Rodgers, among others – who are being recognized by the Recording Academy's National Trustees as performers who, during their lifetimes, have made creative contributions of outstanding artistic significance.

Nirvana was formed in 1987 by Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic and emerged from the Pacific Northwest onto the world stage with the 1989 release of its debut album, “Bleach.” Two years later, Nirvana's sophomore album, “Nevermind”, would spark a seismic shift in global youth culture…rising to No. 1 worldwide and featuring Grammy Hall of Fame single, "Smells Like Teen Spirit," the record‘s impact would transform Cobain, Novoselic and Dave Grohl into one of the most successful and influential musical entities of all time.

Nirvana's third and ultimately final studio album, “In Utero”, was released in 1993, completing an indelible run that returned rock 'n' roll integrity and passion to the top of the charts.

With a 2014 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and more than 75 million records sold, Nirvana continues to be a source of inspiration for generations of fans and musicians the world over.

The Recording Academy will honor the Lifetime Achievement Award winners during a Special Merit Awards Ceremony on February 4 at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles during Grammy Week 2023.
