    That baby album cover is still disturbing, IMO

    The most important rock album of the last 25 years? I think so...

    Are you talking about Bleach? I like that album a lot, but it's not Nevermind...

    Yes, duh.. Bleach. $600 of fuzz, not as produced as nevermind, not as popular, but while Nevermind introduced Nirvana to the world Bleach pushed Sub Pop over the top and that was a good thing.

    Then why didn't you just call it by its name?

    I agree Bleach has a better sound, and it' less forced "grunge" which I like, but the iconic singles on Nevermind make it better IMHO...

    I understand woy, you've got a lot of information up there! I was just wondering why the "duh" was necessary. Thanks for the clarification...

    I'm guessing woy was "duh-ing" himself... That's how I phrase it after I know I erred on something easy.

    As much as I disliked Nirvana and the whole Seattle thing, I can't argue.

    My dislike was because I was a child of 70s and 80s rock, and the new sound was a shock to my system. For the first time in my life, at age 25, I felt outdated and uncool. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" just sounded like a bunch of jumbled noise to me.

    I now appreciate the band and the album and it's place in music history, but it doesn't bring back great memories.

    Try this version on for size - I heard about Anka's album on NPR (maybe Fresh Air) and it was intriguing to hear a big band take on the song:

    Another thing that made Nevermind as great as it was, is the fact that they added Dave Grohl as their drummer shortly before going to Sound City to record it.

    If you're very into Nirvana, you know that Chad Channing (and The Melvins' Dale Crover for 3 songs) was the drummer on Bleach, and while decent, Chad definitely was not at the same level as a Dave Grohl.

    I honestly can't picture the songs on Nevermind sounding as good if they had Chad Channing drumming on them. If any of you have ever heard Nirvana's "Smart Demos", you'll probably agree. These were the original Nevermind sessions, before they canned Chad in favor of Dave. Songs like "In Bloom" and "Lithium" just were not the same without Dave's firepower.

    Oh, and I also think In Utero is an incredibly underrated album, in addition to Bleach. But following up Nevermind was of course a tough task.
