I was two years old when Nirvana released Nevermind.

I first heard them through my grunge-obsessed uncle when I was eleven or twelve (early 2001), though I’d already been well aware of them and of Kurt Cobain, through the Foo Fighters connection. I first got my own physical copy of Nevermind a few months later, maybe my twelfth birthday but I’m not sure. I still own that very copy.

That basically started a lifelong appreciation for grunge.

Didn't even exist yet when Nevermind came out
I knew I responded but to be precious Nevermind came out 1 year, 6 months and 10 days before I was born XD

HOWEVER, I got it when I was 17 years old roughly, can't remember exactly.

Omg going back a page here and seeing my face was hilarious!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

But anyways, I was 1 year old :lol: But as yous may know I have a pretty vivid memory so I remember watching their unplugged on MTV with my mom and loving them as a 3 year old. I then borrowed a friends Nevermind CD in high school and listened to that religiously every morning while doing my hair. When I had to give it back I burned myself a copy that I listened to all the time up until 2008. Haven't listened to Nirvana since... :?

It's very now and then for me. Now I have a copy of Nevermind on vinyl I may listen to it that way more often than the last few years.

I'm sure I've answered to this thread before but I was almost fifteen back then. All the cool people listened to it while I rather played my Marc Cohn record on repeat.

And Evee that post/picture combination is truly epic :lol:
