Exactly 25 years ago yesterday, a trio outfit called Nirvana released the album that forever changed how the world looks at grunge.

Nevermind, the band's sophomore album, did not only reach the top of the Billboard 200 chart on January 11, 1992, but more significantly, it became a landmark material in the history of alternative rock—immortalizing everything about Nirvana (Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl), including Spencer Elden (the baby featured on the cover) who has recently recreated the shot for the New York Post.

Nirvana's signature sound is unmistakable. Even after 25 long years since its official release on September 24, 1991, Nevermind remains an important milestone in the grunge scene, sustaining the soundscape that matters to millions of fans and bands following the genre.

With "Smells Like Teen Spirit" dubbed as the "anthem for apathetic kids of Generation X" to this day, such unstoppable success of Nirvana needs no explanation at all. No doubt why Nevermind producer Butch Vig once remarked on Cobain's raspy voice, "Even though you couldn't quite tell what he was singing about, you knew it was intense as hell."
