Kurt Cobain only had one tattoo himself, the logo for "K" Records.
Wikipedia - K Records

I met Calvin Johnson in 2002.  He came to a friend's apartment in Louisiana and played some songs of his on an acoustic guitar.  He also slept on the couch.  I had no idea what to talk about with the guy.  I didn't want to be a moron college student across from someone who is uncomfortable being idolized.  I'm pretty sure we talked about the weather and our favorite cheeses.

I guess I will be the first to say that Nirvana was a great.  I typically like old punk, however I really liked Nirvana.  They eliminated the hair bands from radio play, so if you hate them, at least thank them for that.

In Utero was a fantastic album.

Looks like you can't be a brand and a person, dead or not, at the same time. It's clear what they want. Here's hoping that if the label turns him into a holograph or makes him dance with a vacuum there will be violent repercussions.

I just hope he goes off against the Bears tomorrow.

I know, it's so shocking that the big corporation is acting all corporationey.

I agree that sadly, there probably will be a Kurt Cobain holograph show in Vegas by 2025, but there won't be any violent repurcussions, save for fans biatching about it on the internet.

A holograph show just replaying an actual live show with no bullshiat interaction could be cool. Essentially pumped up 3d. The audio would be the bigger issue.

Far and away their worst album. Even the band hated it. Not sure why Universal is pretending it was so relatively important.

Because.. The kids (people like me) who grew up in the late 80's /  early 90's as teenager fark-ups worshipping the Seattle scene are all grown up and responsible adults now.. The new breed of fark ups grow up hear `adult stories' about how cool the 90's were and the `legendary' bands at that time..  I mean.. Paris Jackson has been seen wearing Kurt Cobain t-shirts and apparently idolizes him or some shiat.. It's not about selling to the original fans.. It's about selling to a new breed of fans.. It's no different then the record companies selling the fark out of The Doors and Pink Floyd bullshiat in the 90s..

Word.  It did suck.  A big letdown as it totally lacked energy and decent songs.  Probably what finally did Kurt in.

I didn't care for the album either, but it was a perfect "fark you" response by Kurt to the record companies and all the fame he obviously couldn't handle from the success of Nevermind. That album was a crisp, glossy production that was perfect for the mainstream, while In Utero was a cloudy, muddled mess of sound.

The week after Cobain's suicide the Tower Records in Nashville had all Nirvana albums on sale for 1/3 off. Wish they had cellphone cameras back then...

Dave laid down the drums in a kitchen for Christ sakes. I enjoyed it. Of course I was 15 at the time so what do I know?

Universal still humping Kurt's corpse? How did they do that with Dave Grohl balls-deep into it?

I was born in '83, so in the 90s I was roughly the right age.

I don't think I've ever listened to a Nirvana album (wasn't my bag back then) and doubt I ever will voluntarily, just because I loathe the 1-3 songs that have been played non-stop for 20 years on the 'alternative' radio stations.

I don't think they're -bad-, I just don't want to hear them ever again.
