Musical Disclosure by Perform School of music Episode 113

Second appointment of the week dedicated to Nirvana.

Welcome back to our second session dedicated to Nirvana.


In 1991, Nirvana released their second album, "Nevermind," under Geffen Records. Recorded at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys with production by Butch Vig, this album marked a monumental turning point in their career and in the global music scene. Propelled by the single "Smells Like Teen Spirit," inspired by a graffiti by Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill, the album achieved extraordinary commercial success. The music video for the single was played in heavy rotation on MTV, helping the album reach number one on the Billboard 200 chart in January 1992, even surpassing Michael Jackson's "Dangerous." "Nevermind" was enthusiastically received by critics and became not only the emblem of the grunge movement but also one of the most influential albums of the 1990s. Kurt Cobain admitted to being heavily inspired by the Pixies, adopting their dynamic style characterized by calm moments alternating with bursts of sonic intensity.

The sudden success catapulted the band members into an unexpected reality, creating tension between their punk attitude and their new rockstar status. In 1991, Nirvana participated in Rock for Choice, a series of concerts organized by L7 to raise awareness about women's reproductive rights. Following Kurt Cobain's marriage to Courtney Love and the birth of their daughter Frances Bean, the band performed some memorable concerts, including the Reading Festival and the MTV Video Music Awards. The latter event was marked by technical and personal tensions, including problems with Axl Rose backstage. At the end of 1992, Nirvana released "Incesticide," a collection of rarities and lesser-known tracks. The album included previous singles and EPs like "Sliver" and "Dive," as well as tracks recorded in sessions for the BBC, such as "Been a Son" and "Aneurysm," and covers of songs by The Vaselines and Devo.


Today's listening recommendation is "Breed" from the album "Nevermind." Enjoy!
