CSPC: Nirvana Popularity Analysis

Think different!

Original Album Sales – Comments

1989 Bleach – 5,100,000
1991 Nevermind – 27,400,000
1993 In Utero – 12,100,000

Now that’s what I call a short discography. Nevermind is clearly a massive selling album with a tally that keeps increasing at fast pace year after year. In Utero is often disregarded but 12 million copies sold is huge no matter what. On its side, Bleach achieved an impressive total of 5 million copies sold strictly as a catalog album, despite none of its songs being initially known.

The band do not have a gigantic selling compilation, even if 2002 set Nirvana sold over 7 million. They definitely sold bucket loads of various other formats yet. Rarities records like Incesticide sold a lot, boxsets a la With The Lights Out too and more than anything their live records did wonders, led by the cult MTV Unplugged In New-York, one of the very best selling live album ever at nearly 16 million.

All those albums contain new songs, all of which will be accounted under the Orphan Album folder which will thus be highly relevant in Nirvana case.

  1. thanks a lot. Nirvana is my favorite rock band all time. of course they are not the best technical rock band but, No rock band or artists did the same things as they did. their musics remain the same.

  2. They are the real cultures of Youth. Nirvana is not typical rock band. I think a lot of people today still miss the band. they are loved by generation.

  3. Hello Guillaume Vieira, I have a question. like Nirvana and other popular musicians worldwide, how can you check the sales data? is it easier to track sales data in these day?

    I think there are not so much press factory like old days. because in these day I bought Nevermind because it was pressed in the U.S.A(FBI logo) but there are some sticker in front of cover(made in Germany).
