Here we are now, entertain us, and regardless of whatever you preferred format is, there will be plenty to entertain you with the new 30th anniversary reissues of Nirvana's iconic Nevermind album.

The record initially arrived on Sept. 24, 1991, signifying a start of a musical revolution that would upend the music world circa 1991 and usher in the birth of grunge and a more prominent presence for alternative acts in general. Bolstered by the groundbreaking "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and soon followed by "Come as You Are," "Lithium" and "In Bloom," Nevermind rose to the top of the album charts in early 1992.

Now, to mark the 30th anniversary of the diamond-selling album, Geffen/UMe will serve up multi-format reissues that include a total of 94 audio and video tracks, 70 of which are previously unreleased, across various configurations. The album itself has been newly remastered in all formats utilizing the original half-inch stereo analog tapes and transitioning to high resolution 192kHz 24-bit.

As for some of that previously unreleased material, look for four complete live shows that document the band's concert experience - Live in Amsterdam, Netherlands (recorded and filmed on Nov. 25, 1991 at Club Paradiso), Live in Del Mar, California (recorded on Dec. 28, 1991 at the Pat O'Brien Pavilion at the Del Mar Fairgrounds), Live in Melbourne, Australia for Triple J (recorded Feb. 1, 1992 at The Palace in St. Kilda), and Live in Tokyo, Japan (recorded at the Nakano Sunplaza on Feb. 19, 1992). All four of these remastered live shows are included in the Super Deluxe editions of the album.

Fans will be able to pick up the 30th anniversary sets in vinyl (8LPs – 180-gram black vinyl – all in premium tip-on jackets — plus the new 7-inch – A-side: “Endless, Nameless” / B-side: “Even In His Youth” and “Aneurysm”) and CD+Blu-ray (5 CDs plus Blu-ray – Live in Amsterdam, Netherlands complete concert video newly remastered audio & video in HD).

Pre-orders are being taken here for the Nirvana Nevermind 30th anniversary reissues that will be arriving on Nov. 12. Check out the track listing and artwork below.
