[pullquote quote="I like (Milk It) because it is a...rip off of a song I wrote..." credit="Buzz Osbourne"]Last week, the music world collectively took a moment to consider the immeasurable cultural impact of Nevermind. Released twenty years ago, [lastfm]Nirvana[/lastfm]‘s second album took the rock world by storm as it upended the glamour and pretense of 1980’s hair metal with an honest, depraved grit that had never before hit a mainstream audience. The reaction was unanimous, and traveled faster than a Hollywood contagion. Our friends at MP3.com consider the cultural monument of Nevermind, [lastfm]Nirvana[/lastfm], and Kurt Cobain through an intimate lens.

Buzz Osbourne of [mp3com-artist]the Melvins[/mp3com-artist] picks his top five Nirvana tracks – and acknowledges the controversy of “Rape Me” sounding quite similar to “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” And you can also check out the top Nirvana choices from Pelican and Boy + Kite.

For fans who have yet to dissect the various influences that fed Kurt Cobain’s creative psyche, check MP3.com‘s Spotlight on his favorite bands – including a free download from The Melvins.


It’s fair to say buyers of the Nevermind: 20th Anniversary release can expect more than the original 12 (or 13) tracks that helped the record grew to certified Diamond status (selling more 10 million records in the US alone). Peep the video below for full details of what tantalizing goodies the deluxe edition offers:


And today only (Sept. 27) Vevo is streaming Nirvana’s entire Live at the Paramount show from 1991–and it’s well worth your time to watch!
