We LOVE The Nineties! Hooray For Reissues!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBonoDave Grohl

Nirvana and U2 Reiusse Records

Superstar bands Nirvana and U2 are both reissuing popular albums from the decade of flannel and good money.

In 1991, Nirvana came out with Nevermind, a record that Rolling Stone would later call the number one album of the decade and the seventeenth greatest of all time.

For their twentieth anniversary, the band plans to reissue Nevermind as a five disc deluxe edition. Due September 20, the reissue is sure to make grunge fans everywhere very happy. As for more anniversary surprises, drummer Dave Grohl says:

I wouldn’t doubt it if something very special happens – we have a few things up our sleeves. I can’t really say anything yet. But you’ll see. It’ll be fun.

Of course, Nirvana isn't the only band about to celebrate a twentieth anniversary. For U2's party, they plan on reincarnating Achtung Baby packed with rare recordings and extra outtakes. U2's guitarist, The Edge, is very excited about it saying:

I'm blown away listening to some of the rough mixes and the outtakes. There's some very interesting alternative versions that we discovered of songs that wouldn't have seen the light of day, alternative lyrics, different arrangement styles — it's like Achtung Baby out of focus.

Wow! Two legendary bands releasing deluxe editions of their hit records.

Old fans are sure to go crazy, but we wonder if this will bring in a younger crowd for them too.

What do U think?

    Unfortunately, the younger crowd likes empty, crap music that you promote, Perez, of the likes of Kesha, Katy Perry, Britney, The Black Eyed Peas, etc. When I was a teen I was listening to U2, Nirvana, Brit pop, and great music that still sounds fresh today. Teens now have no chance to make any long term emotional connections to the music they listen to today. It's quite sad.

    Re: lulupoopoo – I Agree! It's all manufactured, auto-tuned corportate bullshit. Unfortunately, there is no clear definition for what "real music" is. So basically anyone can put out anything and call it music. I'm surprised I haven't heard 3 minutes of just a toilet flushing played on the radio.. Yet. Seriously, the rest of the world is laughing at us. Why do kids (and plenty of adults) like eating shit??

    All of music today is a reissue. Please. Stop being naive. The problem with all of the reissued material is that it lacks any form of intelligence, depth or substance. Lulupoopoo hit one of the nails right on the head. Kids today are fed so much garbage so fast they have no way of really relating to in or retaining the experience. And this starts from the point of purchase, which is a download, another empty experience (vs. walking the isles of a fantastic music store for hours with something tangible) to about 40 seconds later when the next piece of crap is issued that you dub "epic". It's all a complete, utterly sad, joke on a much deeper level than what it appears to be.

    Re: MLshocK – Because when sites like this feed people shit long enough they will begin to like it in absence of something really creative. And even worse, when the occasional genuine talent is shown, it's almost downplayed as something ordinary. So not only is the music absolute crap, but taste, judgement and intelligence are also melted away by the same phenomenon.

    To add, Sarah Palin convinced a LOT of people that Revere warned the British. Even Wikipedia, as people already know, was almost changed to reflect it as fact. It's not hard to convince people of nonsense. It really isn't. The average IQ of the nation is 90. And dropping. French Fries for breakfast, Perez Hilton for arts and entertainment, a bucket of lard and twinkies for lunch, Sarah Palin for history lessons, and pretty much anything on television dictate that we'll be walking with knuckles scrapin' the earth and mouth breathing our way to the next "epic" Lady Gaga concert.

    Another really stupid and pointless post. Who gives shit. This music has been around since the 90s and is reissued all the time, cds, tape, digital format. It is available all over the internet. If someone is a fan of this music they most likely already have a copy in some format or other. Reissues is a pointless concept.

    This is the second time you've tried to block the little baby's wiener. He's just a baby, Perez, get over it.
