EDITORS’ NOTES

It was a whisper that turned into a scream, a tipping point in rock ’n’ roll history. Nevermind—Nirvana’s sculpted symphony of reckless guitar, bass and drums nailgunned to some of the most oblique yet thoughtful lyrics of all time—woke a generation of latchkey kids gorged on broken promises and ushered in the alt-rock nation. “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, “Come As You Are”, “In Bloom”, “Lithium” and “Breed” are corrosive anthems that ignited a movement, slammed shut a decade of excess—and catapulted the underground into the mainstream.
