Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ Turns 20 [VIDEO]

nirvana - smells like teen spirit

This week I have done several posts that celebrate the anniversary of some of the biggest albums of all time.  Yesterday it was the Red Hot Chili Peppers “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” that I posted about. Tomorrow (September 24) is the 20 year anniversary of the release date for this classic album.  Tomorrow is also the anniversary for the release of what is maybe one of the greatest albums of all time.  More after the jump.

That’s right — it’s hard to believe that two albums of such magnitude were release 20 years ago tomorrow – on the same exact day.  In addition to the Chili Peppers was Nirvana’s “Nevermind.” MTV spoke with Chili Peppers Bassist, Flea, where he tells them that a bands like Nirvana only come around once in a lifetime:

So many hits came from Nirvana’s “Nevermind” that it’s hard to single out just one song.  I have to go with the first single release off the album.  It turned the world upside down and became an anthem for a generation! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the video for “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
