Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ Surges on Rock & Alternative Charts After 30th Anniversary

It gained by 10% to 12.9 million on-demand U.S. streams and 327% to 4,300 sold in the tracking week.

Concurrently, two of the set’s songs hit the multi-metric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart (where older titles are eligible to appear if ranking in the top 25 with a meaningful reason for their resurgence). “Smells Like Teen Spirit” leads at No. 9 (4.4 million streams, 2.6 million radio audience impressions and 3,200 sold), followed by “Come as You Are” at No. 20 (2.7 million streams, 2.7 million in airplay reach and 1,100 sold).

Four other older songs reach Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, two each by Coldplay and The Lumineers, sparked by 69-cent sale pricing in the iTunes Store for select catalog songs in the alternative genre (as well as new releases by both acts).

Coldplay charts with 2000’s “Yellow” (No. 18; 3.3 million streams, 427,000 airplay impressions and 2,000 sold) and 2008’s “Viva La Vida” (No. 23; 2.4 million streams, 1.5 million in radio reach and 1,600 sold). The Lumineers shine with 2012’s “Ho Hey” (No. 19; 4.8 million in airplay audience, 2.3 million streams and 1,600 sold) and 2016’s “Ophelia” (No. 21; 2.9 million streams, 470,000 airplay impressions and 2,000 sold).

Coldplay’s earlier hits join the group’s new BTS collaboration “My Universe,” which launches at No. 1 on Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, while The Lumineers’ new single “Brightside” vaults 44-25.
