Nirvana's "Nevermind" Released 20 Years Ago Today!


Recommended Posts

I like your article. If you have Sirius or XM satellite radio, you must know that they have temporarily converted the alt-rock channel LIthium into Nevermind Radio to celebrate this 20th anniversary of Nevermind's release. I spent my whole day at work today listening to Nirvana demos, live recordings, deep tracks and classics. Tonight at I think 8 pm eastern they have a live broadcast of an interview/fan Q&A session with Grohl and Novoselic. The host is John Stewart. I'll be listening.

Kurt Cobain had a remarkable voice and sensibility. I was a little bit old to be a fan at the time, and a lot too old to still be a fan; but I love how Nevermind kicked the ass of hair bands and the odious late 80's pop sound. I have told my husband that if I predecease him, I want "All Apologies" at my funeral.

I'm so glad you like my post. I'm still reeling "Nevermind" is now 20 years old. It seems only yesterday I discovered Nirvana, and thought, "Yea, this is exactly what I want to be listening too."

Sadly, I missed the XM/Sirius Nirvana stuff. I don't have XM/Sirius. Sad.

And you might enjoy this review I did of the book "Cobain Unseen" by Charles R. Cross.

That was really wonderful and it makes me want to get the book. I am very affected by artists dying young in general. When it's an artist whose work I really admire, I tend not to get over it. That's how I feel about Kurt Cobain. I appreciate what we had of him, but I feel really sad and cheated that we didn't get more. Yet it's hard to blame a person who's in so much pain for doing what it took to get over that pain.

Sirius and XM are still playing Nevermind Radio. As I took my son to school just now we heard Lounge Act, Lake of Fire and a Cobain home recording of About a Girl. Great stuff.

      Planning on scheduling my ankle surgery around Trump's Georgia trial - if I'm forced to be off my feet, I might as well be entertained.

      Stupid loneliness!
      Kid 1 went back to college (yeah! But sad foe me, she stayed with me all summer. It was nice to start a new phase in our mother/daughter relationship)
      Zero prospects on dates. (Not that I have tried online dating, scared of that but I have reached put to a new group at church, etc.
      I asked a friend to go to dinner the other night so I wasn't eating alone, again. The friend had plans, all my friends always have plans. I see stuff on social media, I'm never invited. I'm single, I'm the 3rd or 5th wheel.
      My one parent friend at kid 2's fall sport won't be there because their daughter made varsity (Yeah for her!!! Seriously happy for her. Sad for me for another sport I basically sit alone, did that majority of spring and summer sporting events.)
      And now I'm crying as my mom told me 2 different funny stores that former teachers remembered about my twin. Both stories were about how they got a crack out of my twin's antics (my parents went to a funeral today and saw former colleagues). Teachers remember me (after all I was a twin and teachers' kid) but none would have memorable stories of me. 
      I feel invisible. 
      Don't worry, this will pass,  it always does. I just need a pity party for a few days. I'm not in anyway going to harm myself. As lonely as I am, I have a very full life I (usually) love. I just needed to vent and cry for a moment. 
      If you are still reading this, thanks Fjer. 😊

      Absolutely awful about the fires on Maui. In 2019, I stayed in Lahaina. I liked to sit on the sea wall, which is the only structure left now, and watch the water. People are receiving help, but many had to leave pets. Please donate to the Maui Humane Society, which is leading efforts to find, treat, and reunite pets.

      Nebraska’s new football coach, who is involved in an organization called Man Up Ministries, labels certain players “Alphas” and sometimes “extreme Alphas” and the local paper has a nice piece on why people objecting to the term “alpha male” are wrong and it has a “nice ring”. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
