Nirvana's 'Nevermind' Gets Deluxe Reissue Treatment

As has probably been reported everywhere by now, Nirvana’s Nevermind is set to get the deluxe reissue treatment to commemorate the record’s twentieth anniversary. To answer the question that countless music bloggers feel compelled to ask, yes, this release will make you feel old if you date everything in your life to the first time that you heard “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Otherwise, I suppose we can view this “milestone” with a certain amount of guarded ambivalence. I mean, really, how many times can this band’s lean back catalogue be repackaged and resold? And how many people already own bootleg versions of these promised rarities? Finally, how revelatory can the demo version of “Teen Spirit” really be? What’s it going to sound like? “Rape Me”? 

I suppose those questions are enough to get all of you talking.
