Nirvana's Nevermind Can Legally Drink
 
Nirvana's Nevermind came out 21 years ago today.

Let's face it, it was drinking anyway.

But yeah, great album.

lidoscotty 09/24/12 08:25 AM

We're not worthy!

CallMeTroy 09/24/12 08:49 AM

I've never been able to enjoy this album. Nonetheless, many bands I love today have drawn influence from it. Happy birthday to this iconic work of art.

FUCKDIRTYWIPES 09/24/12 08:50 AM

i had no idea I was only 5 when that came out. holy smokes.

TomAce 09/24/12 08:50 AM

i bought this from tower records the year it came out...fuck.


man, getting old sucks.

schlotty 09/24/12 08:57 AM

My favorite album.

Holly HoX! 09/24/12 09:03 AM

I fucking love this album.

semipunk93 09/24/12 09:13 AM

That means the Nevermind baby can drink too....
Though seriously, I can't believe this album came out that long ago. It's aged so well that it sounds as though it could've come out yesterday.

StepsInADance 09/24/12 09:23 AM

Album seriously never gets old, in fact it gets better every time.

jasonisasleep 09/24/12 09:32 AM

dang, i was only 9 when this came out? i thought i was older. weird.

xburningcoffin 09/24/12 09:53 AM

Wasn't old enough to appreciate this record the year it came out but I've been making up for it ever since. Thank you Nirvana!

NorthstarPark 09/24/12 11:23 AM

Even as a young lad I never really cared for Nirvana, don't get me wrong I respect this album because it influenced a lot bands that I used to listen to but I just don't get the hype. Why does this album get a pass?

Archael 09/24/12 11:28 AM

This band is overrated in general, but In Utero is awesome and much better than Nevermind.

Pear Jam have one solid album front to back and a handful of other good songs.

SST bands are where it's at.

Very nice. Like this album.

while everyone was creaming over lion king back in the day, this is what i was listening to :headbang:

Steeeve Perry 09/24/12 04:21 PM

Even as I delve deeper into Sub Pop (along with SST, Twin/Tone, Dischord, etc) I still believe this was Nirvana's magnum opus.

Of course, two members of Pearl Jam -- in an earlier band, on Sub Pop -- were the first to coin the term "grunge" on a record sleeve/insert. Just a fun fact. Nirvana were always more of a punk band but Sub Pop loved its marketing so lumped them in with the lumberjack grunge groups.

To think, two things came out that day that men (and plenty of women) all over the world have loved.

Um... no? Anyway I was referring to Nevermind, of course, as well as The Low End Theory by A Tribe Called Quest. Sorry for any confusion.

Steeeve Perry 09/24/12 09:54 PM

^^if my memory serves correctly, I've read the first Blur record plus Blood, Sugar, Sex Magic by the Chili Peppers also came out that day.

I agree, and I'm a huge Nirvana fan. I think it's all about the time during which the album was released. They helped redefine the standard. There wasn't much music like it, and nothing like it in the mainstream. Not only was it musically fresh and challenging but socially as well.

It's like looking back at early punk rock -- If you were born after them, the Sex Pistols and the Ramones don't seem so original. But that the time they were arguably revolutionary.

The Low End Theory is the holy Grail of hip-hop.

I'm aware, just wanted to throw another "grunge" band in the equation. Mudhoney was Sub Pop.
