Even though Nirvana dissolved more than twenty years ago, following the untimely death of its frontman Kurt Cobain, its legacy still lives. In fact, multi-genre rapper and Nirvana fan Post Malone recently hosted his tribute concert to the band to raise funds for efforts against the coronavirus pandemic.

The legendary trio of Cobain, together with Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, has become the face of a generation. To experience the short-lived yet highly influential band; here are some Nirvana vinyl records you can't miss:

MTV Unplugged In New York [2 LP]

Nirvana's live album was posthumously released in November 1994 a few months after Cobain's passing in April of that year. The double-vinyl "Unplugged" contains the band's acoustic performance in New York and featured their lesser-known songs as well as covers of other bands' works.

Enjoy it in its 25th-anniversary reissue, adding five more tracks containing rehearsal performances not available in the original 1994 release, plus an exclusive silver gatefold vinyl jacket.

The final studio album was intended as a departure to their mainstream-accepted sound, going more abrasive and natural with the help of engineer Steve Albini. "In Utero" reached the top of the US Billboard 200 upon its release, with critics praising the brave move of the band.

This album contains the timeless hits "Heart-Shaped Box" and "All Apologies," both hitting the number one spot on the Alternative Songs chart. Also, enjoy the 12-inch 33 rpm vinyl in its original 1993 cover featuring the instantly-recognizable anatomical mannequin with angel wings and Cobain's collage on the back cover.

Set your next grunge listening session to Nirvana's remastered edition of "Bleach," their 1989 debut studio album. While it was first unappreciated when it first came out, the band's subsequent success with their next albums launched it as a vital part of Nirvana's journey. "Bleach" was re-released in 1992, after their landmark "Nevermind," to better commercial performance.

"Bleach" was released a year before Dave Grohl joined the band. Chad Channing and Dale Crover covered the percussions for the originally 11-track album. Listen to "Blew," "About a Girl," and "School" - the three songs from the album that would become staple items in the band's setlists.

The definitive Nirvana album every fan knows by heart, "Nevermind," is the first album to feature the trio of Cobain, Novoselic, and Grohl. Aside from the hit-studded 13-track album, "Nevermind" is also among the most instantly-recognizable albums because of its cover art - a fully naked baby swimming underwater with a dollar bill dangling from a line.

"Nevermind" was commercial underdog, starting with low expectations before hitting widespread commercial and critical success. The 1991 album has become one of the best-selling albums of all time, with more than 30 million copies sold worldwide and has been credited as a significant work in bringing grunge and alt-rock genres to the mainstream audiences.

Enjoy your own Nirvana session with this limited vinyl pressing of the album, from "Smells Like Teen Spirit," to "Come As You Are," "Lithium," and "In Bloom." You may also listen to the now-hidden track "Endless, Nameless" and the official closing track "Something in the Way."
