Staff Infection: Nevermind
Going through my Twitter feed lately feels more like Déjà Vu, rather than instantaneous updates. Twitter has become a state of Nirvana. Although I was about 2-years-old when Nevermind was released, growing up in the ‘90s, I quickly became aware of who Nirvana was.
Personally, Kurt Cobain was a musical therapist for me. Sometimes you feel like the world’s biggest f*ck up, and then you hear the first few seconds of “All Apologies” and suddenly the song dissects your inner turmoil and everything makes sense.
Twenty years later and Nevermind still remains one of the best rock albums of all time. Cobain is even in the 12th spot on Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. If you’re interested in songs that inspired Cobain, check out Stereogum’s “20 Songs That Influenced Kurt Cobain.”
