Nirvana: Nevermind 20th Anniversary deluxe edition due this fall

20 years ago, a little band from Seattle exploded on the music scene with a super-charged pop/rock hit and moved music into the next generation.

Released in September of 1991, Nirvana’s “Nevermind” garnered praise and rose within a few months to the No. 1 slot on Billboard’s U.S. sales chart. The album eventually made the band a household name with the help of the teen pop anthem, “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

“Nevermind” went on to sell more than 30 million albums, and is now ready for the deluxe treatment.

The 4-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition of “Nevermind” will be available from September 19 worldwide (except North America, where it will be available September 20).

The CDs will include previously unreleased recordings, rarities, b-sides, BBC radio appearances, alternative mixes, rare live recordings and an unreleased concert in its entirety on DVD.

The 20th anniversary of Nirvana will be marked throughout the year, with various events and releases.
