Nirvana's 1991 album "Nevermind" sold 30 million copies, crushed the hair metal movement and launched grunge. So, yeah, expectations were pretty high for the band's proper 1993 follow-up "In Utero." The album includes the hits "Serve The Servants," "Heart Shaped Box" and "All Apologies," but, more importantly, it's stronger, especially lyrically, throughout than Nirvana's previous two albums.

Universal Music Enterprises will commemorate the 20th anniversary of "In Utero" with multi-format release that spreads more than 70 remastered, remixed, rare, unreleased and live recordings over configurations ranging from a 3-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition to a standard digital/CD remaster of the original album. The release date is Sept. 24.

Material exclusive to the various versions of the "In Utero" 20th Anniversary reissue will include a never-before-heard demos, B-sides, compilation tracks and live material featuring the final touring lineup of Kurt Cobain, Kris Novoselic, Dave Grohl, and Pat Smear.

The reissue features the release of the complete "Live and Loud" show from Seattle's Pier 48 on Dec. 13, 1993. Additionally, a standalone single-disc DVD of the complete "Live And Loud" show along with several never-before-released bonus performances will also be released on Sept. 24.

Both Nirvana's "Bleach" (1989) and "Nevermind" (1991) also received 20th anniversary reissues packed with bonus material.
