Song of the day for June 15, 2024

1 min read

Negative Creep by Nirvana is today’s featured song.

On this day in 1989, Nirvana released their debut album, Bleach. Recorded at Seattle’s Reciprocal Recording and produced by Jack Endino (whose credits include projects for Mudhoney, Soundgarden, and the Screaming Trees), the album marked the trio’s only release on Sub Pop Records and their sole LP to feature drummer Chad Channing. Despite critical acclaim, the album initially only sold 40,000 copies in the US. After the breakout success of 1991’s Nevermind, however, Bleach returned to the charts and was eventually certified Platinum by the RIAA. In 1994, track “About a Girl” also found new audiences, after a live version (recorded during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged session) became a Top 40 hit.
