TVD’s 10 Weeks of Record Store Day Vinyl Giveaways: Nirvana, Nevermind

As we continue on with our 10 Weeks of Record Store Day Vinyl Giveaways, TVD has a copy of Nirvana’s Nevermind that we want to put in the hands of one lucky fan.

Nirvana is widely thought to be one of the main pioneers of the Seattle grunge sound. Nevermind, the band’s sophomore release and major label debut, is considered to be one of the most influential albums of its time, as well as the album that brought alternative rock to the mainstream circuits.

Rolling Stone said it best when it described Nevermind as “a museum piece, a record that merits a display in the Smithsonian.” Released just over 20 years ago in 1991, it would eventually go on to sell over 30 million copies worldwide, making it not only one of the most significant, but also one of the greatest-selling albums of all-time.

Lest we forget why Nevermind has had such a great impact on the world of music… Have you listened to it? It’s damn good. Between Kurt Cobain’s scratchy vocals, Kurt Novoselic’s sharp basslines, and Dave Grohl’s roaring drums, Nevermind shows that Nirvana was the ultimate power trio. While the songs are melodic, and, as Cobain sings in the chorus of “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” contagious, they’re also full of dark and self-deprecating lyrics that allow us to better understand the internal demons that haunted the lead singer until his untimely death.

So there you have it. Nevermind is undoubtedly one of the most important albums to ever be released, and everyone at TVD wants you to win a copy of it on vinyl.

Nevermind is commonly remembered for its cover artwork. For your chance to win, comment on this post and tell us another album that has a memorable album cover. I’m going to go with the prism and rainbow that make up Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon cover. A winner with a North American mailing address will be selected a week from today, on Wednesday, March 7th.
