Nirvana, Nevermind Full Album Zip
Nevermind is the second studio album by the American rock band Nirvana, released on September 24, 1991, by DGC Records. It was Nirvana's first release on a major label and the first to feature drummer Dave Grohl. Produced by Butch Vig, Nevermind features a more polished, radio-friendly sound than the band's prior work. It is widely regarded as one of the most influential albums of all time, and has sold over 24 million copies worldwide.
The Making of Nevermind
Nirvana was formed in Aberdeen, Washington, in 1987 by singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic. The band released their debut album, Bleach, in 1989 on the independent label Sub Pop. The album was well received by critics and fans, but did not achieve much commercial success. The band then signed with DGC Records, a subsidiary of Geffen Records, in 1990.
The band began working on their second album in early 1991 with producer Butch Vig, who had previously worked with bands like Sonic Youth and Smashing Pumpkins. The recording sessions took place at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California, and Smart Studios in Madison, Wisconsin, in May and June 1991. The band also hired Dave Grohl as their new drummer, replacing Chad Channing, who had left the band due to creative differences. Grohl's powerful and energetic drumming style complemented Cobain's distorted guitar riffs and melodic vocals.
The band recorded 16 songs for the album, but decided to include only 12 on the final tracklist. The songs were influenced by bands such as Pixies, R.E.M., the Smithereens, and Melvins. The lyrics were mostly written by Cobain, who expressed his views on topics such as alienation, frustration, anti-establishment, anti-sexism, and troubled love. The album's title was inspired by a graffiti that Cobain saw on a wall, which read "Kurt smells like Teen Spirit". Cobain later found out that Teen Spirit was a brand of deodorant that his then-girlfriend Tobi Vail used.
The Impact of Nevermind
The album was released on September 24, 1991, and received critical acclaim from music critics. The album also became an unexpected commercial success, hitting the top 10 charts across the world. By January 1992, it reached number one on the US Billboard 200 and was selling approximately 300,000 copies a week. The lead single, "Smells Like Teen Spirit", reached the top 10 of the US Billboard Hot 100 and went on to be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Its video was also heavily rotated on MTV. Three other successful singles were released: "Come as You Are", "Lithium", and "In Bloom".
The album's popularity also brought attention to the grunge and alternative rock scene of Seattle, where bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains emerged. The album also influenced many other genres and artists, such as pop punk, emo, metal, rap rock, and post-grunge. The album was voted the best album of the year in Pazz & Jop critics' poll, while "Smells Like Teen Spirit" also topped the single-of-the-year and video-of-the-year polls. The album also garnered the band three Grammy Award nominations in total across the 34th and 35th Grammy Awards, including Best Alternative Music Album.
The album is considered a landmark in rock history, and has been ranked among the greatest albums of all time by various publications and organizations, such as Rolling Stone, Associated Press, Spin, NME, Pitchfork, Time, and the Library of Congress. The album is also credited with changing the course of popular music in the 1990s, ending the dominance of hair metal and pop stars, and ushering in a new era of alternative rock. Cobain was hailed as the "voice of his generation" and Nirvana as the "biggest band of the 1990s".
