    No. It never was. It was just a funny little detail and didn't represent anything.

    Nevermind wasn't expected to get to #1, so when it did, it was like "how about that? I wonder what album it replaced? Oh, it was MJ". And that was it. Everybody carried on with their lives. It wasn't about somebody "winning".

    It was never about Nirvana Vs MJ or the death of pop music or whatever nonsense the journalists were trying to write about.

    Albums sell for a few weeks and then sales decline. Then another, newer album sells more copies. That's all there is to it. It was just an accident of timing.

    By the way, In Utero is great. Give it a listen. And I'm not saying that because it sold a lot of copies. I don't care about that. I'm saying it because it's good.

    Sorry, too long didn't read whole post.
    I've been listening to Nirvana back in the day, actually some years after the Nirvana-mania.
    Tried to re-listen to In Utero recently ... it's un-listinable, litterally... I wonder how it was every considered a great album... I still like Penny Royal Tea though. Nevermind was much better, imo.

    I wouldn't worry too much about whether other people consider it great. If you don't like it, that's fine, you don't have to listen to it. Everybody's different, after all. Part of the whole Nirvana ethos is to listen to what you like, not because it's popular.

    I meant ... I remembered it as a great album ... people were crazy about it... Wondering how this precise album aged so bad for me, while most other things didn't.
