It's hard to judge if they really sold out or just became more mature.
In the beginning, their songs were mostly rock oriented, a bit sloppy, with simplistic melodies and lyrics that did not focus on sounding overwhelmingly beautiful but rather wanted to get their point across.
Then over the years their music became a whole lot slower, softer and most of the lyrics became more poetic, using more metaphors. Their newer style is definitely a lot more radio friendly, but also I'm sure it takes a lot more skill writing their more recent material. And also we shouldn't forget their debut album was released in 2004, so yeah, maybe their personal taste and ambition changed. Also their appearance is much less punk-ish recently. But many people claim they have sold out, and one thing for sure: their new style is definitely more commercial, whether intentional or not. But that doesn't mean they are not still good. - Martin_Canine

97 Nirvana Nirvana Nirvana was an American grunge band that was formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana disbanded after Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. The drummer of the band, David Grohl, went on to start the Foo-Fighters, an alternative rock band. more.

They never sold out. If you mean instrumental sounding album"in ultra", I still don't get it. If Kurt was still alive I know they would be one of the top five best rock bands in this generation. Getting bands like Linkin Park, Avenged Sevenfold and Green Day packing - RustyNail

They didn't have time to sell out. - BeatlesFan1964

Since When Has Nirvana Sold Out? - FettiMC

Is this a joke?

Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

Only their debut album sucked and HTTK was just laid back

Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury more.

I don't think anyone can sell out two nights of Wembley and a huge ultra mega concert with a combined total of people of around 107,000 people in all the concerts. With more people still wanting to go.

They sold out with Bicycle Race and Fat Bottomed Girls
