My Top 5 Favorite Albums: #1

The album that defined my generation.  The song that defined my generation (Smells Like Teen Spirit).  The band that defined my generation.  Nirvana’s legendary second album took the music world by storm in 1991.  It exiled “hair metal.”  It oozed angst.  It propelled frontman Kurt Cobain to unwanted fame.  It put Seattle-based rock groups on the map and opened the doors for bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Mudhoney (among others) to find mainstream success.  It made “grunge” a permanent part of pop-culture lingo.  All that, and it just plain rocks.  Hits like Smells Like Teen Spirit, Lithium, and Come as You Are made Nevermind a rock classic.  Now, if I can only dig up my flannel shirts and Chuck Taylors…

Check out “In Bloom” (one of the best music videos ever)
