    Nirvana: The 1992 'Nevermind' Cover Story, 'Heaven Can't Wait'

    (This article originally appeared in the January 1992 issue of SPIN.)Return to your seats, buckle up, and say your prayers: Nirvana is on a collision course with the world. Nevermind, the band's first major-label release, has exploded unexpectedly on the charts while the band's public profile has expanded at a scary rate. With good reason. Remember the first time you heard a song or band that totally blissed you out? Well, this band takes you there. Nirvana lives up to its name—unless you don't believe in bliss, in which case I feel sorry for you.The album has already gone gold, and is even out-selling Guns N' Roses double Use Your Illusion at some record stores. And the band's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video garnered the world-premiere slot on MTV's 120 Minutes, practically unheard of for a band that had never had a video shown before on MTV.
