Classic albums A-Z: Nirvana – Nevermind (1991)



Yes, well obviously this has to be here. No brainer. Primarily because of the opening track which remains one of my favourite single releases of the 1990’s.

And I guess everyone knows that Kurt Cobain wrote the song about a deodorant? Well, sort of.

A good friend of his – Kathleen Hanna from ‘Bikini Kill’ – famously wrote ‘Kurt smells like teen spirt’ on his bedroom wall. And it’s this which gave rise to the song. But it was only later that Cobain found out that there really was a deodorant called ‘Teen Spirit’. Suffice to say that sales rocketed after the single release in November 1991.
