SceneCast: NirvanaCast

, , and | Sunday, September 25, 2016


On Sept. 24, 1991, three rambunctious losers from Seattle released an aggressive grunge album that would go on to replace Michael Jackson’s “Dangerous” as the No. 1 record in America — thereby radically altering the trajectory of popular music forever. Twenty-five years later, Nirvana’s “Nevermind” continues to stand as one of music’s most iconic and problematic records of all time.

While none of us were alive to witness its unprecedented debut, we at Scene know a special album when we hear one. This week we made a collective attempt to explain what makes the album so significant, song by song. This week’s podcast expands on the merits of the album and Nirvana’s legacy.
