Morning wake up call: Joan Jett sings lead with Nirvana on “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

At the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony yesterday, Joan Jett did lead vocals and guitar on “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, while Lorde later joined the band to sing on “All Apologies”.

You can also catch a slightly better video of Joan Jett doing “Teen Spirit” again after the ceremony here. Overall, the second is a better video, and the only reason I didn’t lead with it is because it cuts off near the end. :(

Check out the trailer for ‘Soaked in Bleach’, the documentary about the initial investigation into the death of Kurt Cobain

Soaked in Bleach reveals the events behind Kurt Cobain’s death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator that was hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband (Kurt Cobain) only days before his deceased body was found at their Seattle home.

Aberdeen, Washington celebrates Kurt Cobain day with a terrible, terrible statue
Kurt Cobain never had many good things to say about Aberdeen, and the town never had good things to say about him. That is, until they caught a whiff of some potential tourism money (see Forks, WA for examples of Twilight tourism). And somehow, that led to this…an ugly, crying statue of Kurt Cobain that looks more like derpy jesus.

I know it’s nearly Thanksgiving, but I’ve been avoiding the internet, mourning a few deaths and a breakup, amongst other shit. Have we done a Halloween costume post? Because I’d be interested in seeing what my peers on IHC had dressed as. My costume was pretty legit, even if I do say so myself, but mainly because it took an entire post-Haloween weekend for me to break character. I also only went to Punk and Jungle/D&B shows, even though it’s arguable that Nirvana was ever Punk or that K.C. would have even enjoyed Drum and Bass (It’s possible.) Then I had to do the grungy subway walk-of-shame on the following Monday, toting my wig, some beers, and my sorrow in a plastic bag made in Brooklyn.
If I missed the post, simply direct me to the link and disregard this message..t

Ed: There wasn’t a single post per se, but several people did submit photos of themselves in costume, I did a shitty job of tagging them, sorry. But hey, you’re a most late with submitting your costume, so we’re even.

Happy 45th birthday, Kurt Cobain

Today is not only President’s Day, but it’s the day that would have been the 45th birthday of Kurt Cobain, had he not blowed his brains out when he was 27 in 1994. Or when Courtney Love had him killed. Someone was going to say it.

Aberdeen, Washington votes overwhelmingly against naming a bridge after Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain may have been from Aberdeen, Washington, but that doesn’t mean they have to like him. In a vote before the city council, the proposal to name a bridge after Cobain was shot down 10-1. Currently, the bridge is unofficially named after pioneer Alexander Young. And no, the sign isn’t in honor of Nirvana either. It’s been like that for a while.
