Drain You: The 10 Most Expensive Nirvana Items On eBay

Today officially marks 20 years, yes two decades, since Nirvana's Nevermind hit stores and started a whole new movement in music, er, well at least brought one further above ground. The past month the music world has been awash in articles and blogs about Nevermind, with the three living architects, drummer Dave Grohl, bassist Krist Novoselic, and producer Butch Vig looking back on the album they made in 1991.

Obviously it's an emotional time for all involved. Main man Kurt Cobain has been dead more than 17 years now, and is thus unable to reflect on the album. That only seems to stoke the fires of obsession for Nirvana devotees, though. We remember in 1991, 20 years after the death of Jim Morrison, the massive swell of Doors love that flooded pop culture.
