Butch Vig Looks Back At Nirvana's 'Nevermind' 25 Years Later

Nirvana's landmark sophomore studio album Nevermind turns 25 this year, and its producer Butch Vig revealed new details this week about working with Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl to record the music that would launch them into an entirely new stratosphere of popularity.

Speaking with Yahoo Music, Vig recounted the long road between the first session he did with Nirvana (with Chad Channing on drums) at Smart Studios in Madison, Wisconsin, and what they recorded in L.A. some months later, after the band signed with Geffen Records on the strength of those initial sessions. And he stressed that the commerciality of the band's music was no fluke.

Re: Butch Vig Looks Back At Nirvana's 'Nevermind' 25 Years Later

I honestly can't listen to Nevermind anymore. When I was, I don't know, 16 I had it on an infinite loop. That and Dirt, I would just sit up all night listening to them on repeat. Now Nevermind is too overplayed and too polished for me. I guess another thing that kind of puts the nail in the coffin for me is that Nevermind and In Utero are the exact same style, practically mirror images of each other, except that In Utero is a lot rawer and a lot heavier and therefore a lot more up my alley, so I kind of end up seeing Nevermind as just this inferior take on the same concept.

I will say, Polly's still a really cool song, though. Better than Dumb or Pennyroyal Tea.

I concur. Nevermind used to be this raw masterpiece for me, but now it doesn't do much for me anymore.

I still play it once in a awhile just for nostalgia.
