In Utero

In Utero was the final studio recording from the band Nirvana. It was released 21 September 1993 (see 1993 in music). Produced by Steve Albini, the album was intended on securing Nirvana's indie credibility by not pandering to mainstream tastes. The alienated, bitter lyrics and atonal sounds make for a gloomy record, especially with the knowledge that it was the last album before Kurt Cobain's suicide.

In Utero went to #1 on Billboard's Top 200.
