Such classic tunes, but sadly such a short career! Still, there’s no denying the impact that Nirvana made over their abbreviated stint as grunge icons. They amassed three studio albums, but which of their albums is the best? That’s what we want to hear from you in this week’s Loudwire Nights Album of the Week poll.
You’ll have until Friday at 12N ET to cast your votes. We’ll then play the three tracks from the album with the most votes during Loudwire Nights‘ Album of the Week block to start the following Monday’s show!
Nirvana made their initial imprint on the music scene in 1989, delivering the raw yet promising debut album Bleach, which gave us such standouts as “About a Girl,” “Blew,” “Negative Creep” and the Shocking Blue cover, “Love Buzz.” The album was recorded with Chad Channing on drums and Jason Everman adding additional guitar.
Their lineup would change, with Everman and Channing exiting and the band going as a trio with new drummer Dave Grohl on their 1991 sophomore set, Nevermind. The game-changing album launched “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” which is often credited as the song that signaled the grunge arrival and takeover of the music industry. “Come as You Are,” “In Bloom,” “Lithium” and “Something in the Way” have also earned plenty of airplay over the years.
The band’s third album, In Utero, kept the momentum going in 1993. “Heart-Shaped Box” was a chart-topping single, followed by “Rape Me,” “All Apologies” and “Pennyroyal Tea.” Sadly, Kurt Cobain would take his own life while the band was still in the midst of promoting the record, but that hasn’t stopped it from achieving five-times platinum status.
But which of these albums is their best work? You’ve got a chance to rate each of the records below, helping us to determine which one is the best. Then tune into Loudwire Nights next Monday at 7PM ET to find out which record prevailed. During tonight’s show, you’ll get to find out which Falling in Reverse album was voted the best, and hear three songs from our recent poll.
