Next Week in Music | Sept. 25 – Oct. 1 • The Long List: 460+ Releases On The Way

Here we are now, entertain us: All the new (and old) music heading right for you.

It happened 32 years ago today. On a Tuesday.

All was quiet on the Sunset Strip. The longhaired, Spandex-clad metal dinosaurs were fat, arrogant and sleepy. They didn’t notice the indie-rock meteor hurtling out of the sky directly at them. Even if they had spotted it, they probably couldn’t have cared less — couldn’t have believed for a second that it could harm them in the slightest, let alone spell their imminent doom. After all, it was just some dumb album by three ugly nobodies from Seattle. They dressed in street clothes. Their hair looked dirty. The album cover had a picture of a naked baby swimming after a dollar bill on a fishhook. And it had songs with titles like Smells Like Teen Spirit, Lithium and Territorial Pissings. Yep, it’s been 32 years since Nevermind arrived on Sept. 24, 1991. And a little less than 32 years since grunge took over the world and rock was changed immeasurably and forever. Will any of the 460-plus new albums, EPs, singles, box sets, compilations, anthologies, retrospectives, soundtracks, vinyl reissues and cassettes arriving next week have the same impact and longevity? Peruse the list and place your bets:
