Nirvana – Nevermind (CD)


Nevermind is the second studio album by Nirvana, released on September 24, 1991. It was Nirvana’s first release on a major label and the first to feature drummer Dave Grohl. Written primarily by frontman Kurt Cobain, the album is noted for channeling a range of emotions, being noted as dark, humorous, and disturbing. Thematically, it includes anti-establishment views, anti-sexism, frustration, alienation and troubled love inspired by Cobain’s broken relationship with Bikini Kill’s Tobi Vail. Nevermind and its singles’ success propelled Nirvana to being widely regarded as the biggest band in the world, with Cobain being dubbed by critics as the “voice of his generation”. It is also often credited with initiating a resurgence of interest in punk culture among teenagers and young adults of Generation X. It has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. Among the most acclaimed and influential albums in the history of music, it was added to the National Recording Registry in 2004 as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important”, and is frequently ranked on lists of the greatest albums of all time.
