Nirvana was a legendary rock band that re-defined music as we know it, which paved the way for the grundge scene — To celebrate Nirvana’s 20 year anniversary, a 4-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition of Nevermind will be released.
Twenty years ago, a young band from Seattle Washington introduced the ‘Seattle sound’, the grunge aesthetic of high-octane, heavily distorted electric guitars, contrasting song dynamics, and apathetic or angst-filled lyrics which paved the way for music for the next generation.
Nevermind was released in September 1991, and garnered praise and rose within a few months to the #1 spot on Billboard’s U.S. sales chart. The album eventually made the band a household name with the help of the teens ‘angst-filled’ anthem, “Smells Like Teen Spirit“.
Nirvana’s Nevermind went on to sell more than 30 million albums. 20 years later in 2011, we’re ready for the Deluxe treatment!
The 4-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition of Nevermind will be available from September 19th 2011 worldwide (except North America, where it will be available September 20th 2011).
The CDs will include previously unreleased recordings, b-sides, rarities, alternative mixes, BBC radio appearances, rare live recordings and an unreleased live concert on DVD.
