Silver anniversary alert! Nirvana’s debut album Bleach turns 25 today (June 15). What’s your favorite song on the album?
And here’s Nirvana's acceptance speeches. (King Buzzo gets a shout-out!)
New photo of Krist Novoselic, Kurt Cobain and Dan Peters, 1990.
Mudhoney drummer Dan Peters, who was replaced by Dave Grohl in Nirvana, will attend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction as a guest of Nirvana’s. However, he will not be inducted.
And finally, a bona fide copy of Nirvana’s legendary “Smart Studios” demo — recorded with Butch Vig in April of 1990 — slipped to us by an A&R guy later that year (it was such a hot item that the exec actually tried to obscure the band’s name with Wite-Out). The tape included seven then-new songs along with three from Bleach. Five of those new songs would be re-recorded for Nevermind (including “Pay to Play,” a.k.a. “Stay Away”) along with two that weren’t: “Dive” (released as the B-side of “Sliver”) and “Sappy,” later re-recorded and retitled “Verse Chorus Verse.” It did not have a j-card — this one, such as it is, is homemade.
