Nirvana saved rock n roll from itself.
After the eighties of over production and flaccid mainstream hair rock Nirvana broke the great underground through into the mainstream and changed rock music for ever with an album of songs that were searingly honest, abrasively powerful and thrillingly heartfelt.
‘This album sums up the turning point in America. It’s attitude and ultra cool guitar riffs make it monumental. Copied wholesale by just about everybody. Clean guitar…then stand on a distortion unit. Wake up muppets! You won’t better Kurt’s.’
