6. Nirvana - In Utero
For their third album - and the second for David Geffen's DGC Records - the grunge heroes tried to get away from the slick, radio-friendly sound of Nevermind by working with the notorious musician and producer Steve Albini.

Imagine what must have happened when they heard Rape Me.
