Before they dethroned Michael Jackson atop the Billboard chart with Nevermind, Nirvana were an unassuming, unpolished, underground rock band from Aberdeen, Washington, welding sludgy noise-punk to primitive pop hooks. Their pre-Grohl debut features two drummers — Chad Channing and the Melvins’ Dale Crover — across its 11 tracks, which veer deliriously from more accessible cuts like the Shocking Blue cover and Sub Pop single “Love Buzz” to teeth-gnashing ragers like “Negative Creep.” Kurt Cobain’s genius was still taking shape, but its paradigm-shifting potential shines through even here.
