‘In Utero’

Originally released on 23 September 1993, ‘In Utero’, included hit Nirvana single ‘All Apologies’, a track which was performed by the band in their MTV Unplugged special, along with ‘Heart Shaped Box’. 

‘All Apologies’ was also famously covered by the late Irish singer Sinéad O’Connor, featuring on her 1994 album ‘Universal Mother’. 

Following her death in July, this special cover began to do the rounds on social media. Check out the cover and Nova’s report on this here.

Sadly, Nirvana disbanded in 1994 following the death of frontman Kurt Cobain. The band also featured drummer Dave Grohl, a friend of Cobain’s.

In subsequent years, Dave Grohl has achieved major success as the lead singer of Foo Fighters.

Before this, Dave Grohl revealed that he turned down the chance to join Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. The offer arrived not long after Cobain’s death, and Grohl admitted that he was still reeling from that loss.
