December 24 - Nirvana begins recording their first album "Bleach"

On this day in 22 years ago, one of the most influential bands in music history began recording their very first album. With a $600.00 loan from a friend from school, Nirvana began recording their debut album, "Bleach". While the album was received well by critics, it failed to chart on any of the Billboard Charts in the United States upon it's original release.

The album featured 13 tracks, including "Blew", "Love Buzz", and "About a Girl". "Bleach" sold 40,000 units upon it's original release. After the huge success of their follow up album "Nevermind", the band re-released their debut album and it reached the charts in 9 different countries.

After the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994, the album began to sell hundreds of thousands of copies and eventually reached platinum status in 1995--six years after it's original release date.
