Watch Duff McKagan & Krist Novoselic Play “Sweet Child O’ Mine” Together

Nirvana and Guns N’ Roses famously didn’t like each other, mostly owing to a backstage spat between Axl Rose and Kurt Cobain at the 1992 VMAs. But Duff McKagan and Krist Novoselic were never going to keep that feud going; they’ve got too much in common. They’re both bass players, both relatively mellow and level-headed… More »

Watch Kurt Cobain’s Ridiculous Chris Cornell Impression From Montage Of Heck

Behold, the best part of Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck. In my review of Brett Morgen’s Kurt Cobain documentary, I noted that “one Cobain joke at the expense of a fellow Seattle grunge band is priceless.” A five-second snippet of that joke has surfaced online, and you should definitely watch. It’s a home movie of… More »

Robotic Empire has put together a second Nirvana tribute album for Record Store Day. The first one was released for last year’s RSD, and had various artists covering the entirety of In Utero.

Courtney Love: Montage Of Heck Helped Frances Bean Heal “In A Way That I Certainly Couldn’t Do”

Montage Of Heck, the recent documentary about Kurt Cobain’s life, might be the most comprehensive, honest portrayal of the iconic Nirvana frontman that’s ever been done. That’s mostly due to the skillful hand of the film’s director Brett Morgen, who Courtney Love specifically tapped. V Magazine published a conversation between the two of them revealing… More »

Watch Nirvana Play A Show For Two People In New Montage Of Heck Clip

When director Brett Morgen agreed to take on the Frances Bean-produced documentary Cobain: Montage Of Heck, he thought that it would take 18 months to make. Instead, the film took eight years, and it just about sucked the life out of Morgen in the process. Anyone willing to spend that much time digging through archive… More »

Frances Bean Cobain Gives Rare Interview: “I Don’t Really Like Nirvana That Much”

If you were Frances Bean Cobain, you probably wouldn’t like Nirvana much, either. So before any diehard fans get up in arms about it, think about how the stuff your parents are affiliated with indelibly loses some of its crisp, shiny meaning, blunted by family ties. And, to her credit, Frances has mostly avoided talking… More »

Nothing – “Something In The Way” (Nirvana Cover)

Philly’s Nothing have shared a cover of Nirvana’s muted and melancholic “Something In The Way,” the last track on the band’s seminal 1991 album Nevermind (second-last if you count the secret song “Endless, Nameless”). The cover will be included on Robotic Empire’s second Nirvana tribute album, Whatever Nevermind, which is due out on Record Store… More »

Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck: The Stereogum Review

Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck is a movie about the frontman of Nirvana, but it isn’t about Nirvana. The word Bleach is never uttered. Dave Grohl was not interviewed, and his entry into the band is not addressed; he’s just there all of a sudden as the archival footage shifts into the Nevermind era. Eve… More »

Kurt Cobain’s Childhood Home For Sale Again, Now $100k Cheaper

Nobody wants to buy Kurt Cobain’s childhood home! Or, more likely, realtors vastly overestimated the appeal (and extra money) that his one-time living space would bring in. The house first went on the market back in September 2013 for $500,000 but, as The Puget Sound Business Journal points out, a new listing shows that number… More »

Father John Misty – “Heart-Shaped Box” (Nirvana Cover)

As a special Valentine’s Day treat, Father John Misty — whose I Love You, Honeybear is our Album Of The Week — performed a cover of Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box” during a session for Sirius XMU.

Dude Really Wants You To Know He Was On The Cover Of Nirvana’s Nevermind

Spencer Elden wants you to know that he was the baby on the cover of Nevermind. Like really, really badly. He’s popped up in the news talking about it every few years for the past decade and a half, sometimes going as far as to recreate the photograph (in 2001 and 2003 and 2008) and… More »

Hey, remember when Nirvana reunited, except with Paul McCartney standing in for Kurt Cobain, and they recorded a song called “Cut Me Some Slack“? No? You have no memory of that happening?

Billy Corgan On Kurt Cobain: “He And I Were The Top Two Scribes, And Everybody Else Was A Distant Third”

We’ve gone way too long without a juicy, self-admiring Billy Corgan quote, but The Independent‘s new interview with Corgan is full of them. Although it’s occasioned by the Smashing Pumpkins’ new Monuments To An Elegy, the interview largely focuses on events from 20 years ago. For instance, when reporter Nick Hasted mentions that Eddie Vedder… More »

Courtney Love Is In The Kurt Cobain Doc Montage Of Heck But Has No Control Over It

Frances Bean Cobain executive produced HBO’s upcoming documentary about her father, Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck, but her mother Courtney Love’s name wasn’t listed among the film’s contributors when it was announced last week. That was curious because Love is the one who initially asked director Brett Morgen to take on the project in 2007. More »
