Diversity & Debuts - 1991 Year In Review (Part 1)

1991 was an incredible year in music, but it often gets sold short in the music press. When people relfect on the year in music, it's usuallly reduced to something like "Nirvana released Nevermind and all other music died".

1991 was an incredible year in music, but it often gets sold short in the music press. When people relfect on the year in music, it's usuallly reduced to something like "Nirvana released Nevermind and all other music died".

That couldn't be further from the truth and the IGP Crew is here to discuss it. This is the first of two episodes where we break down many other huge releases from 1991 across all genres. In this first half, we take a stroll from January through June stopping along the way to give credit to the heavy hitting albums that dropped. Queen, R.E.M., Mr. Big, Skid Row, Anthrax, Boyz II Men, Van Halen, NWA and many more are all along for the ride.

Debut albums? Check. Now legendary albums? Check. Final albums? Check. Game changing albums? Check. It's all here and that's just for starters. While Nirvana's Nevermind LP did in fact go on to change the landscape of the music scene, the fact is that there's just a lot more to 1991 then that.

Come with us as Russ, Michelle & Kyle walk you through the first half of one of the biggest years in the history of music. It's Season 4 (yes Michelle, we're still in Season 4) Episode 7 of the guy who usually writes our descriptions but is dealing with a ridiculous power outage, also known as The Bumper's favorite music podcast and as he would say: LET'S GO!!
