Like millions of angst filled teens, Nirvana defined the first half of the 1990's for me. Overnight the halls of my middle school were filled with ripped up jeans, Converse All-Stars and flannel shirts. Lyrics to "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Come As You Are" were scribbled in the margins of every textbook and on every bathroom wall. While I still prefer the rawness of Bleach, there is no denying Nevermind is the quintessential album of 1991. Perhaps of the early 90's or even the 90's as a whole.
