50 Years, 50 Albums 1991: Nirvana ‘Nevermind’

The second album from the Seattle based grunge band that changed the face of music as we know it. Taking a cue from the Pixies while also combining the punk sounds of Black Flag with the pop hooks of the Beatles, Nirvana created an album that famously knocked Michael Jackson out of the number 1 spot on the charts. The album that killed “hair metal” and eventually went on to sell over 10 million copies in the U.S. Featuring the biggest alternative rock song of all time “Smells Like Teen Spirit” plus other 90s mainstays like “Lithium,” “In Bloom” and “Come As You Are”.
