So I associate [‘Rape Me’] with the disappointment—and then having to hear it over and over again, and slowly accepting that I hated it. Because you’re not allowed to dislike Nirvana. You’re allowed to dislike the Foo Fighters, but you’re not allowed to dislike Nirvana. Even if the song is bad. And I think if it were a Soundgarden song, people would just not like ‘Rape Me.’

No Seattle highlights lesser-known Northwest rock acts

The compilation features 23 different bands, largely unknown today but featuring a fair number of familiar names in the lineups. The Ones featured Jack Endino on bass, before Endino became Sub Pop’s go-to producer for the burgeoning Seattle music scene. When Bundle of Hiss went their separate ways, drummer Dan Peters joined (and still plays with) Mudhoney, while bassist Kurt Danielson took up with the heavyweight TAD. And after her tenure in Kill Sybil, drummer Patty Schemel became the drummer for Hole.

From Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready's Facebook page:

Had to pleasure of interviewing Jack White this past week for SiriusXM Pearl Jam Radio while he was in town for a couple shows. Turns out he’s a fan of polaroids as well! We decided to take pictures of each other…
