Tegan and Sara's 25 Favorite Albums

Nirvana Nevermind (1991)

Tegan: "We were only 12 when this record came out so a lot of the pandemonium around the band, Kurt and the release was lost on us. But we loved the videos and the songs. I'm not sure why our parents initially let us listen, but they did.

"By 1993 with the release of In Utero, we were fully engaged in wild teenage angsty behaviour and a full-on love affair with the grunge movement (and style). Our rooms were covered in Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins posters. We listened nonstop to Nirvana records and drove our parents crazy with pleas to find bootleg cassettes of live shows of the band.

"Stand out track: 'Something in the Way.' This song sound exactly like what it feels like to be 14."
