The 20th anniversary of Nirvana's "In Utero" album is upon everyone, and sure it makes you feel old, but it also makes you appreciate it more. MTV reported on Sept. 13, 2013, that the band didn't want to be the most popular band, but that was exactly what they did, and no-one today could possibly do the same.
"In Utero" debuted at number one on the Billboard charts for Nirvana, and that was all she wrote. The album went platinum five times, and 20 years later, it may do even more. On Sept. 24, 2013, a deluxe anniversary edition of the album will hit stores.
Sitting back and listening to tracks like "Heart-Shaped Box," "All Apologies," and "Milk It;" it makes someone realize just how talented the band truly was. It also makes so many wonder how far Nirvana could have gone if Kurt Cobain's life hadn't ended far too soon.
Let's look at the videos that Nirvana put out there for "In Utero" as well.
Would someone actually have the guts to put a little girl in a Ku Klux Klan robe to dance around in like she did in "Heart-Shaped Box?" Yet, that isn't even the main thought when the video is shown. It's the classic sound and one that could never be duplicated.
The same can be said for the success of Nirvana's "In Utero," and it will likely continue that way for years to come.
