Bleach was the soundtrack for delinquents. It slung a sinister, menacing tone and a dirty $600 production value, and if you actually saw Nirvana play before they hit, you were either scared of the audience beating you up or you rode your dirt bike to the gig with a pack of smokes in your back pocket. The cover of Shocking Blue's "Love Buzz" is the birth of grunge.
