About this album

Nevermind is the second studio album by the American band Nirvana, released on September 24, 1991. Produced by Butch Vig, Nevermind was the group’s first release on Geffen Records, which signaled its move away from Seattle-based independent record label Sub Pop. Front man Kurt Cobain sought to make music outside of the restrictive confines of the Seattle grunge scene, drawing influence from groups such as the Pixies and its use of loud/quiet song dynamics.

Nevermind was a surprise success by late 1991, largely due to the success of its lead single “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. By January 1992 it had replaced Michael Jackson’s album Dangerous at number one on the Billboard charts. Nevermind was responsible for bringing to a large mainstream audience, and would subsequently be regarded as one of the best albums of all time.

Nirvana was a band from Aberdeen, Washington, formed by Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic, that had signed to Seattle independent record label Sub Pop. The group released its debut album Bleach in 1989, with Chad Channing on drums. However, Channing left Nirvana in 1990, and the band was in need of a permanent drummer. Upon seeing a show by hardcore punk band Scream, the group’s drummer, Dave Grohl, impressed Novoselic and Cobain. When Scream unexpectedly disbanded, Grohl contacted Novoselic, made his way to Seattle, and was soon invited to join the band. Novoselic said in retrospect that when Grohl joined the band, everything “fell into place”.
