Nirvana: The Boys Are Back In Town

Dave Thompson, Alternative Press, October 1993

Go ahead. Hate this band, it's the cool thing to do. The punk rockers hate them because they've "sold out"; the mainstream hates them because they're "too punk." And the rumor mill continues to grind them down. Dave Thompson leaves his expectations at the door and finds NIRVANA confident that they can rise above both reputation and expectation with their new album In Utero.
