In this clip from the Nevermind edition of the Classic Albums DVD series, Butch Vig discusses the track Drain You, which had more guitar overdubs than any other track on NeverMind:

… a clean sound on the intro with Kurt’s vocal, as well as 1-2-3-4-5 guitars, 2 tracks of the Mesa Boogie, 2 tracks of the Fender bassman, and one track that we call the “super grunge”.

The video is a great little tutorial on thickening your guitar sound with multiple overdubs.
