Just imagine this beautiful scene. In early 1990, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain visited deranged punk rocker GG Allin in prison. The entire story has been captured in a new book about the Flaming Lips, and the meeting between Cobain and Allin is too hilarious not to read.
On the heels of the announcement that Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the seminal grunge will receive yet another honor. This coming year, the town of Hoquiam, Wash., will declare April 10 as Nirvana Day.
As announced late last night, Nirvana have been voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This was the first year that the iconic grunge band was eligible for a nomination, and along with Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens, Nirvana will be immortalized at the Hall's 2014 induction ceremony. In response, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl have responded to the honor.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its 2014 class of inductees late Monday night (Dec. 16), and grunge goliaths Nirvana and hard-rock heroes KISS are among the acts who have been elected into the prestigious institution.
On Nov. 18, 1993, Nirvana took a trip to New York City and taped their iconic 'Unplugged' set for MTV. The special aired less than a month later on Dec. 14, adding yet another immortal moment to Nirvana's vast list of achievements. However, 20 years later, MTV has revealed that at the insistence of Kurt Cobain, drummer Dave Grohl almost didn't perform at the 'Unplugged' set.
Nirvana and Melvins will forever be connected in rock history. Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain famously cited Melvins as perhaps his greatest influence, inspiring the would-be grunge icon to create a specific blend of punk rock and sludge which would turn Cobain into the voice of disenfranchised youth. However, Melvins frontman Buzz Osborne and longtime friend of Cobain doesn't have the most positive viewpoint of the musician, as evidenced in a new interview.
This cover is a little more unique than a traditional electric guitar cover of a timeless rock song. Here we are treated to a stunning acoustic performance of Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' by this young lad.
