Can you believe it?! The Gods of grunge Nirvana’s second studio album Nevermind breaks from its teen years and turns 20 this month!
Just to make you feel that little bit older…or young in the case for some of you, it’s been a nearly unbelievable 20 years since this classic album truly lead the way in defining a genre and helped us all to annoy parents, neighbours and well…whoever we could with this turned up high long into the night!
This masterpiece of grunge rock released way back on the 24th of September 1991 proudly brought alternative rock in to the mainstream, blessing us with the classic tracks we all know and love including ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, ‘Come as You Are’, ‘Lithium’ and ‘In Bloom’ to name a few. You know the ones!
Selling more than 30 million copies, this true great has to be undoubtedly one of the most influential albums of the 90′s with one of the most iconic cover artwork to boot.
Well to celebrate, Universal Music is getting geared up and ready to blow out some candles by re-releasing special and super special editions of this icon which will feature rare and unreleased tracks from the guys, as well as live performances, videos and some unseen pictures.
As well as all this exciting new material for us to feast on, the band’s bassist and co-founder Krist Novoslic will mark the occasion by performing at a concert in Seattle on September 20th. No Dave Ghohl though sadly as he’ll be off touring with a little band he’s in called Foo Fighters, some of you may have heard of them, ‘Nevermind’ eh!
If all this talk of the classic band and songs that changed the music scene through the decade has got you feeling the Nirvana love so many years on. Why not check out our amazing range of men’s Kurt Cobain T-shirts available at SugarBullets.co.uk and keep the ‘smells like teen’ spirit alive!
