In SeptemberI was a nervous freshman at the University of Michigan, sitting on a friend's dorm room floor, when a guy ran in from down the hall, saying, "You've got to hear this". It's hard to capture how radical that song and that moment felt. Cobain and his bandmates were suddenly ubiquitous, an explosion of insolent Pacific Northwest cool into my deeply uncool, and fundamentally conservative, Midwestern world.

To the very end of his life, no less an authority on good musical vibes than George Harrison praised and played the ukulele, interpreting many classic tunes on the instrument, penning an enthusiastic endorsementand supposedly buying ukes in bulk to give away at his home in Hawaii.

Our stable of writers undertakes a track-by-track analysis of the most celebrated album of the last 20 years, from the surprise hit that brought grunge to the masses, to the hidden cacophonous noise-fest that may not even be included on your copy of the record. It's conventional music industry practice for record labels trying to break an up-and-coming band to release what's termed a "base-building" cut as the first single from an album. The idea is that this lead single -- specifically chosen because it contains the core recognizable elements of an artist's sound -- will get diehard fans excited enough to send it up the charts devoted to that artist's designated format.
Think of your most noticeable feature. But whatever it is, for better or worse, it is probably not your most salient feature to the world around you. Gender identity haunts every aspect of our lives, dictating the outcomes of our conversations, our workplaces, our relationships — even our bath products.
