No. 12: Nirvana, ‘Bleach’ – Best Debut Hard Rock Albums

Nirvana, 'Bleach'
Sub Pop

Before there was ‘Nevermind,’ Nirvana released the unheralded album ‘Bleach,’ which really found its audience after the band’s fame arrived several years later. Though Nirvana carved out a niche for a particular sound, ‘Bleach’s’ most popular track was really a pop ditty called ‘About a Girl.’

But those who were searching back to find the roots of Nirvana’s sound could easily point to ‘School,’ ‘Negative Creep,’ ‘Love Buzz’ and ‘Floyd the Barber’ as tracks that would have just as easily fit into their ‘Nevermind’ work. The fact that Nirvana welcomed these songs into their sets, only strengthened interest in ‘Bleach’ over time.
