It has now been twenty-five since Nirvana released their first album. Bleach, a record they recorded over one Christmas break for exactly $606.17, came out in June 15, 1989. They didn’t even have the money to pay for it. Chad Channing, the band’s drummer back then, tapped his buddy, Jason Everman for the cash. At the time, they were just another Seattle band. In that winter’s local music directory, here’s how they were listed–and I’m reading this verbatim: “Nirvana: Gunka, gunka, clank, ahh, plunk, deedle, deedle, wah, eeak, unk.” That was followed by some phone numbers and an address. I mean, who would have guessed, right?
