20th Anniversary Of Nirvana's Nevermind

Nirvana, the trio comprised of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl, hailed originally from a coastal fishing town in Washington and rose to become one of the most influential rock bands in history with irreverence, intense honesty and an overriding passion.

The cultural shift Nirvana’s Nevermind initiated was felt instantly on release - and the profundity and depth of that shift becomes even more apparent when seen through the prism of the two decades of art and music created in its wake.

Released in September of 1991, Nirvana’s Nevermind garnered near-unanimous praise and rose within a few months to the #1 slot on Billboard’s U.S. sales chart. Nevermind was propelled to #1 across the globe by their young fans worldwide that identified with the band and embraced their anthem ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ and its landmark music video.

Since then, it has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

Nirvana changed the course of popular music forever and remains an inspiration to those who have followed.

Universal Music Enterprises and Universal Strategic Marketing are pleased to announce the 4-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition of Nirvana’s Nevermind available on September 19th

The CDs will include previously unreleased tracks, rarities, b-sides, BBC radio appearances, alternative mixes, rare live recordings and an unreleased concert in its entirety on DVD.

Internationally the 20th anniversary of Nevermind will be marked throughout the year, with various events and releases.
