Within weeks they released one of the most influential and best-selling albums of all time. Nevermind has gone on to sell 30 million copies worldwide.
The success of Nevermind album can be partly attributed to Geffen's money and MTV patronage.
"Nevermind" also tapped into a new, less showy way of doing things. People, it seemed, were tired of the classic rock loved by the baby boomer generation. Nevermind gave many bands the confidence to give it a go, even if they lacked the best equipment. It took music back to the garage. Nevermind made misfits feel normal.
"Nevermind" is an era-defining album with a timeless appeal.
