Upon its release in September 1991, not much was expected of Nirvana’s second album, “Nevermind.” It was the group’s first major album, with production by Butch Vig.

Artists We Miss…

We watch plenty of TV on our direct tv Arizonachannels but our radios are ALWAYS on. And we’ve noticed as of late that some of our favorites haven’t come out with a new hit in, well, too long! Here are a few of the artists we’re really dying to hear a single from:
Taylor Swift – It seemed like for a while there that every song on the radio was Taylor – between her new stuff and the Twilight stuff and everything else. But it’s been a really Taylor-free zone here as of late and we miss our precious pop princess!
Maroon 5 – Yes, Maroon 5. We know it’s not necessarily the most popular choice but we happen to think Adam Levine has quite a set of pipescan’t wait to hear what these boys are up to sometime soon!
Green Day – Are they even a band anymore? Green Day had us at hello but unless you’re listening to classic alternative stations you won’t hear anything of their past glory days. We’d kill for another single like the ones from the late 90s.
