That was the date 25 years ago that Nirvana released “Nevermind.” That album not only changed the lives of the guys in the band, but also radio, clothing, and the image of what a rockstar is. Many of us had heard of Nirvana before that date,but Sept 24, 1991 is the day that the album came out. When “”Nevermind” came out, it didn’t exactly set the world on fire either. Not at first anyway. “Nevermind”arrived at a modest No. 144 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart in September 1991. By November, the disc had entered the Top 40 for the first time and it finally reached No. 1 in January 1992. One of the most iconic songs from the album “Smells Like Teen Spirit” got its name from Bikini Kill vocalist Kathleen Hanna, who had spray painted “Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit” across his wall. The comment was about smelling the deodorant of Cobain’s girlfriend on him.
Happy 25th Nevermind!
