Nirvana Elected to Rock And Roll Hall

Seattle based grunge band Nirvana will become the 4th act from this area to enter the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.  The previous Seattle inductees are The Ventures, Jimi Hendrix, and Heart.  The group popularized the "Grunge" sound, often known as the Seattle sound.  Other groups that emerged out of that genre include Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. 
The band's lead singer Kurt Cobain sadly died in 1994.  The surviving members of the band appeared as guests on stage at Paul McCartney's concert in Seattle last summer.  The band has sold over 75 million copies of it's music making it one of the most successful rock acts ever.
