Classic Albums Remade: Nirvana – Nevermind

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

It's hard to believe that the album Nevermind by Nirvana just had its 20th anniversary last month. Released on September 24th, 1991, Nevermind would go on to define a band, a genre and a generation. It has sold over 30 million copies worldwide, reached the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, and by my calculations, is the 15th greatest album of all time. The album's influence is broad and deep, and continues 20 years on. As with most albums that stand the test of time, you'll find no filler on this record -- it contains a dozen songs that are all stand out tracks in their own right. For this playlist I've reconstructed Nirvana's Nevermind with cover songs. Hear the album with a fresh perspective.
