Giant Steps and... Nevermind?

Librarian of Congress James Billington announced that Nirvana's Nevermind is one of the nation's most "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" sound recordings. The 1991 album has been added to a list of 150 others in the National Recording Registry. Incidentally it also includes John Coltrane's Giant Steps and the John Williams soundtrack to Star Wars. The Library of Congress "buttoned down"? No way!
