To mark the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's game-changing Nevermind album, Sirius XM Radio is launching Nevermind Radio today at 3pm ET. Hear previews of Tom Morello, Pavement's Steven Malkmus, Guns N' Roses' Matt Sorum, Gaslight Anthem's Brian Fallon and Mutemath's Darren King recounting what the record meant – and continues to mean – to them. 

The centerpiece of Nevermind Radio's anniversary coverage will be "Sirius XM's Town Hall with Nirvana," a Q&A with surviving bandmembers Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl and Nevermind producer Butch Vig. The two-hour program, set for live broadcast beginning at 8pm ET Saturday, will be moderated by The Daily Show's Jon Stewart in front of a private studio audience. 

Nevermind Radio will run through 12am ET Wednesday on SiriusXM channel 34. The limited-run programming will feature tracks from all of Nirvana's recorded output, rarities, live cuts and commentary about the band from various well-known fans, like the ones we have here.

Song Stories

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
