It’s been twenty years since Nirvana’s groundbreaking 1991 album Nevermind entered our aural history, catapulting the punk trio Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl into their unwanted status as one of the biggest bands of the nineties. The album hit #1 throughout the world and ended up selling over 30 million copies, becoming an instant classic.

For Nevermind’s 20th anniversary, Universal Music Enterprises is celebrating with their release of “a full spectrum re-release… With configurations ranging from a 4-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition to a standard digital/CD remaster of the original album, the 20th anniversary reissue of Nevermind makes the most of the occasion, unearthing literally dozens of previously unreleased recordings, obscure B-sides, alternate mixes, radio sessions, studio rarities and live recordings including a Halloween 1991 concert at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre in its entirety.” It’s a teenager’s wet dream.

This edition will also include the “first full official release of the pre-Nevermind demos recorded at producer Butch Vig’s Smart Studios, as well as boombox recordings of subsequent rehearsals through which the listener can actually experience “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “Come As You Are,” “On A Plain” and others take shape before his or her very ears.”  And that’s not all, you can be sure.
