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.

Get a free album of Nirvana covers from Spin Magazine
Okay first, I feel like a bit of a whore, because in order to get said album from Spin, you have to friend them on Facebook and give them your email, which normally I wouldn’t do just on principle. But on the other hand, my entire senior year in high school consisted of listening to almost nothing but Nirvana, so Spin has apparently learned my one weakness.
I haven’t listened to it yet, but it does have a pretty good lineup— The Meat Puppets, The Vaselines, Amanda Palmer and Titus Andronicus to name a few.
Anyway, click here to snag it

Twenty years ago, Nirvana played “Smells Like Teen Spirit” for the first time

This is video of the very first time Nirvana played “Smells Like Teen Spirit” on stage. It was 1991 at the OK Hotel in Seattle comes from the 2004 box set With the Lights Out. Just a few short months after this performance, Nirvana would hit the national airwaves and the rest is history.

Of the song, Cobain famously said he “was basically trying to rip off the Pixies… we used their sense of dynamics, being soft and quiet and then loud and hard.” It’s an apt homage, considering that Nirvana’s explosive success — and Nevermind’s ushering in of mainstream alternative — was in many ways a culmination of the long road tread by the bands that comprised the ’80s college rock and indie underground universe.
