We need a Nirvana Day like I need another Hole song in my head.

As long as subby can make it there without having to constantly Turnaround we'll have enough time to stop a cozy Dive, if that's not too much of a Downer for the non-drinkers.

Not to disparage a talented band, but Nirvana didn't come up with anything that other bands hadn't been doing since the late sixties. They were just the first to get the airplay.

I liked Hole's Nirvana album. Also liked their Smashing Pumpkins album. . . Courtney on her own, not so much.

The special day won't be the only honor Nirvana receives on April 10. That day, the band will also be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on its first try, along with Linda Ronstadt, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, the E Street Band, Hall & Oates and Cat Stevens.

Wait - the E Street Band gets its own separate induction? How about the Pips - are they in there separately too?

They killed hair metal stone dead, all within a few months, for that alone they are ROCK GODS.

I'm more amazed that Bruce got in without the E Street Band

Hey man, nice headline. (Yes, I know the Filter song is about R. "Budd" Dwyer.)

that sounds like an awfully shallow legacy. Is there anything about Nirvana's legacy that does not involve other people's music?

Bruce got in first because his albums were only registered under his name. The E Street Band (as in, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band) came later.

Still real to me..

And bravo Subby.

Funny though, way back in the day as a teen I saw the video(the actual shooting) on a faces of death type of shock flick, had no idea who or what it was about.

Now I have to go look up the song lyrics.

That burn was so harsh it almost gave me an Aneurysm, you Son of a Gun.

Are they having it at Lafayette Park, across from the White House? I don't see Obama being a fan.

The event is in April, when things will probably be in bloom.

Instead of calling "shotgun" we call "Cobain".  It's the seat behind shotgun.

Nirvana had one of the two best Unplugged albums (the other being Alice in Chains), and Nevermind featured some of the best songwriting of the era.

People can argue all day about legacy or genres or any number of stupid things, but really the fact remains that Nirvana was a really good, interesting band, and it's unfortunate that Kurt threw his life away.
