NIRVANA: 25th ANNIVERSARY OF "NEVERMIND"
TODAY, (2016) will mark the 25th anniversary of the groundbreaking NIRVANA release "NEVER MIND", unleashed 9/24/1991 via GEFFEN RECORDS. NIRVANA's classic release "NEVERMIND" changed the world, bringing alternative rock culture and integrity into mainstream consciousness.
NIRVANA vocalist/guitarist KURT COBAIN was found dead, 4/8/1994 in his Washington home by an electrician installing a security system in his home.
So far, there is no conclusive evidence to re-open the KURT COBAIN case, ruled a suicide in 1994 (suicide via a shot gun and heroin), although some investigations are still happening as a "cold case".
According to Seattle Police Department spokes woman Renee Witt, "The outcome of the case has not changed".
NIRVANA unleashed "In Utero" (studio release) 9/13/1993 via GEFFEN RECORDS.
NIRVANA re-issued remastered versions of the bands releases.
On December 17, 2013 NIRVANA were inducted into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME.
ITP V.016 EDITORS NOTE: Where was I when NIRVANA'S "NEVERMIND" dropped? ITP's author was a college radio DJ, 21 years and a few beers, hailing NIRVANA for dethroning Michael Jackson's "Dangerous" out of the #1 billboard position for a shocked, unexpected and a fun victory. NIRVANA's rise was stating the inevitable, 10 years of alternative rock, post punk, nu wave, thrash, and a changing of the guard from hair spray to rock. NIRVANA just happened to be in the right place, at the right time, with a great release.
