Last week marked the 20th anniversary of the release of one of the most influential rock albums of all time: ‘Nevermind’ by Nirvana. Boasting huge anthems and classic tracks such as ‘Breed’, ‘Lithium’, ‘Come As You Are’, ‘Drain You’ and of course ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, the album undeniably boosted the Seattle misfits into super stardom and changed the face of music ever since.
Without Nirvana, and especially the release of ‘Nevermind’, many of today’s most popular rocks acts may not be around today at all, and the shape of music as we know it could’ve been completely different. We asked a few of today’s rising rock stars what they remember from ‘Nevermind’, what the album means to them and what their favourite track is from the record.

Revivals aren’t always the best of ideas, and some things in life should be left dead. A few examples of which would include the all-over denim look, Voldemort, the Gladiator TV series and ankle warmers. One recent push for revival in the rock scene lately is that of grunge, one attempt of revival that is welcomed, and Japanese Voyeurs are maintaining a great name in the genre with their debut ‘Yolk’ that was left behind by its originators back in the 90s.
Grunge-tinted rock act Japanese Voyeurs have been announced as support for legendary axe-man Slash during his run across the UK, which includes his first ever live performance at his home of Stoke-on-Trent. Here are all of Japanese Voyeurs‘ announced UK dates:
JULY 08 – KNEBWORTH, Sonisphere Festival
JULY 12 – LONDON, Hoxton Bar & Kitchen (Album launch show!)
JULY 20 – BIRMINGHAM, Academy (w/ Slash)
JULY 21 – MANCHESTER, O2 Apollo (w/ Slash)
JULY 24 – STOKE, Victoria Hall (w/ Slash)
JULY 25 – LEEDS, Academy (w/ Slash)
The band release their debut album ‘Yolk’ on July 11th 2011 via Fiction Records.
Japanese Voyeurs bring out their armoured artillery and war gear in the video for their new single, ‘Cry Baby’. Despite how timid and innocent vocalist Romily Alice may look normally, in this army attire she looks like she could cause some serious warfare:
‘Cry Baby’ is taken from the band’s forthcoming album, ‘Yolk’, set for release on July 11th through Fiction Records.
Note: As only two members of the site were able to attend the festival weekend, we were sadly unable to cover every band performing throughout the day.
It goes without saying that Download Festival is easily one of the pinnacle and most respectable festivals for rock, metal and alternative music in the UK. With years and years of success and acts gracing its grounds, such as AC/DC, Guns N Roses and Slipknot to name just a few of the more famous ones, 2011 is set to keep the festival’s sterling reputation strong and high. On its Friday bill of acts, there’s a range of names both old and new across its four stages, including a return from The Darkness after their indefinite hiatus:
Tags: Asking Alexandria, Bring Me The Horizon, Children Of Bodom, D.R.U.G.S., Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows, Don Broco, Download Festival, Hyro Da Hero, Japanese Voyeurs, Korn, Lower Than Atlantis, Obsessive Compulsive, Pendulum, Puddle Of Mudd, The Darkness, The Hype Theory, Young Guns
