Twenty years ago on September 24th 1991 front man Kurt Cobain and his grunge band Nirvana released a legendary album that would still be blasting through the headphones of teenagers around the world decades later.
“Nevermind” is the second album that was released by 90’s rock band Nirvana. The album featured the bands first and most popular single “Smells like Teen Spirit,” which became known as the teenage anthem.
The album also featured hit songs like “Lithium” and “Come as You Are.”
“Nevermind” sold over 30 million copies and held the number one spot in Billboards top 200. This album is considered one of the best rock albums in history. Nirvana and this teen anthem album helped to influence the rise in alternative rock music.
Nirvana got their inspiration from bands such as “The Pixies.”
The band was made of lead man Kurt Cobain, drummer David Gohl and bassist Krist Novoselic.
Little did this trio know that they would later be known as one of the most influential and historical rock bands in history.
In 1994 Nirvana stopped their legacy after the death of Cobain. On April 8th 1994 the rocking front man was found dead in his guest house with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Fans of Nirvana have stayed loyal through the years and remain fans of this historic band. Even today people from after the years of Nirvana’s prime find themselves listening to the powerful rebellious songs of this out of the box rock band.
Universal Music Enterprises has announced the release of a four –CD/DVD deluxe edition of Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album.
