Nevermind is the joint twenty-first selling album of all time. It is not an underground punk record. But if you look at the other best sellers it is conspicuously the most dangerous thing on that list.»
Buy now from:
cheap remastered 20th anniversary cd reissue. 'nevermind' raised groundbreaking seattle grunge trio nirvana to the status of godhead, forever changing the face of the pop music market. punk energy and aesthetic ('territorial pissings,' 'drain you') are its lifeblood; pop melody, harmony, and structure ('something in the way,' 'come as you are') its selling points; kurt cobain's roaring guitars and subconscious intellect ('smells like teen spirit,' 'in bloom') its heart and soul. nobody had come up with an album like 'nevermind' before, because no one could conceive of an album like it - not since husker du had broken up, anyway.
