Pat Smear joined Nirvana in 1993 as a second guitarist and recently shared his personal thoughts on the legacy of the music and his feelings about the surviving members playing Nirvana songs live in the absence of Kurt Cobain, who died in 1994.
It seems like ever since the rock world lost Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in 1994, little bits and pieces of Nirvana's famed history have been popping up. This latest discovery posted online is a simple piece of paper. However, printed on that very page is Nirvana's first-ever contract with Sub Pop records, who signed the band for a mere $600.
Nirvana's legendary final studio album, 'In Utero,' will celebrate its 20th birthday on Sept. 13. To celebrate the album's release and monumental impact, a 20th anniversary multi-formal reissue of 'In Utero' will drop on Sept. 24.
In the world of rock, the date April 5 is a solemn one, as it marks the anniversary of the death of both Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley. Now, 19 years after Cobain's death, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer online newspaper has unveiled a number of never-before-published photos of Cobain's death scene have been revealed, some of which show Cobain being carried out of his home by medical workers.
Nirvana's 'Nevermind' is arguably the most impactful rock album of the last 25 years. Its legend speaks for itself, selling over 30 million copies worldwide thanks to grunge masterpieces such as 'Smells Like Teen Spirit,' 'Come As You Are,' 'Drain You' and 'In Bloom.' You may think you've attained all the 'Nevermind' knowledge ever made public, but there are some new tidbits from producer Butch Vig and frontman Kurt Cobain that may deepen your understanding of the album.
If imitation is the ultimate sign of flattery, then Nirvana's 'Nevermind' album cover has to be one of the most beloved images in pop culture history. The iconic artwork has been replicated many times over the years, and Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is the latest to pay tribute, recreating the image for 'ESPN The Magazine's new music issue.
