Hard Rock Smackdowns: Kurt Cobain Bashes Bouncer, Gets Bashed Himself

Nirvana were well known for their destructive on-stage behavior, but rarely did their Who-like antics turn violent. Earlier in the show, Cobain bashed some of the venue’s monitors with his guitar due to his frustration with the sound. Already in a bad mood, Cobain began to hit a security guard in the head with his guitar while attempting to get back onto the stage after diving into the audience. In turn, the bouncer belted Cobain in the head. The incident ended with the six foot, seven inch bassist Krist Novoselic wrestling the bouncer away from the Nirvana frontman.
