Although a lot of people believe that Nevermind is their breakout album, Bleach helped Nirvana slowly turn heads in the music scene and pretty much planted the seeds on what would be grunge's mainstream invasion of the early '90s. The album is also best known by fans for Chad Channing's work on drums. Channing would part ways with Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic in 1990 due to creative differences and was later replaced by Dave Grohl.
Avid fans of the Seattle-based rockers took to Twitter to commemorate the grunge classic's 31st anniversary.
