About the Font used on the Nirvana album

Nirvana is an American rock band that gained popularity in the 90s. The band was formed in 1987 and lead by guitarists and singer-songwriter Kurt Cobain. The music of Nirvana has revolutionized the rock scene and popularized a new genre we knew today as alternative rock. Their music is characterized by a combination of pop melody and punk tunes. And a common theme you’ll find in their music is social alienation which resonated with the younger generation at that time. The font that was used on the album cover has become instantly recognizable and associated with the band. The logo lettering now features on many tshirts, posters and other items like this.
