Yesterday was the 21-year anniversary of Nirvana's Nevermind, one of the most celebrated albums of all time, but also a record filled with frontman Kurt Cobain's angst and anger. Hearing him scream "And I swear that I don't have a gun" was awesome in 1991; now (years after Cobain killed himself with a self-inflicted gunshot wound), it's downright haunting.

Meanwhile, bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl's backdrops gave Cobain a powerful platform for his rants, making the unmistakable sound of Nevermind is as easy to appreciate in 2012 as it was two decades ago.

You'd think there isn't much more to say about the legendary record these days, but that simply isn't true. There are plenty of lesser known facts about Nirvana's sophomore LP that have likely escaped even the biggest fans of the album. Read on for 10 things you didn't know about Nirvana's Nevermind and learn something new.
