Nirvana – Nevermind (1991)

Nevermind has sold over 30 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. The second studio album by American rock band Nirvana, released on September 24, 1991, by DGC Records. Produced by Butch Vig, it was Nirvana’s first release on the DGC and the first to feature drummer Dave Grohl. The album cover, which shows a naked baby swimming with a U.S. dollar bill on a fishhook just out of his reach, is one of the most famous album covers in popular music. Nevermind became an unexpected critical and commercial success. In January 1992, it reached number one on the US Billboard 200. At its height, the album was selling approximately 300,000 copies a week. The lead single “Smells Like Teen Spirit” peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100, and its video was heavily rotated on MTV. Three other successful singles were produced: “Come as You Are”, “Lithium”, and “In Bloom”.
