Remastered re-release of the second full-length studio album by legendary American Grunge/Alternative Rock band.
Nirvana's first release on a major label and the first to feature drummer Dave Grohl, "Nevermind" features a more polished, radio-friendly sound than the band's prior work. The album became an unexpected critical and commercial success, charting highly on charts across the world.
"Nevermind" and its singles' success propelled Nirvana to being widely regarded as the biggest band in the world, with Cobain being dubbed by critics as the "voice of his generation". The album brought Grunge and Alternative Rock to a mainstream audience while ending the dominance of Hair Metal, drawing similarities to the early 1960s British Invasion of American popular music. It is also often credited with initiating a resurgence of interest in Punk culture among teenagers and young adults of Generation X. While "Nevermind" is considered a cornerstone of the Grunge genre, it is noted for its musical diversity, which includes acoustic ballads ("Polly" and "Something in the Way") and Punk-inspired Hard Rock ("Territorial Pissings" and "Stay Away").
It has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. By January 1992, the album reached number one on the US Billboard 200 and was selling approximately 300,000 copies a week. The lead single "Smells Like Teen Spirit" reached the top 10 of the US Billboard Hot 100 and went on to be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Its video was also heavily rotated on MTV. Three other successful singles were released: "Come as You Are", "Lithium", and "In Bloom". The album was voted the best album of the year in Pazz & Jop critics' poll, while "Smells Like Teen Spirit" also topped the single of the year and video of the year polls. The album also garnered the band three Grammy Award nominations in total across the 34th and 35th Grammy Awards, including Best Alternative Music Album. In March 1999, it was certified Diamond by the RIAA. Among the most acclaimed and influential albums in the history of music, it was added to the National Recording Registry in 2004 as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically important", and is frequently ranked on lists of the greatest albums of all time.
