Our 1991 display will be coming down soon, but there is yet another way to explore the legacy of that landmark year in music. The new August issue of Spin, which will be on our shelves shortly, has a cover story on what Nirvana's monumental album Nevermind means today. In conjunction, they have assembled a tribute album, cleverly dubbed Newermind. It features covers by the Meat Puppets and the Vaselines, bands that influenced Nirvana, as well as newer artists such as Amanda Palmer and Titus Andronicus. The tribute album is available as a free download via Facebook. The original is available in the Media Center, CD 1333.
