1096

4 Dec

In this musical time travel theme, we have reached 2002. And for today… Nirvana. How does that work when Kurt Cobain died in 1994? To get to that answer, we have to look back to 1995. That’s the year that Hole went on MTV Unplugged. It was a good performance but in my opinion, there was one blight. Courtney Love and her crew decided to debut an unreleased Nirvana song. Musically, it’s a gorgeous rendition. But Courtney screws up the lyrics and vocals terribly. Fast forward to 2002. After years of Love battling with Dave Grohl & Krist Novoselic over the Nirvana catalog, the song is finally released on the greatest hits album, “Nirvana”. One of the final songs ever recorded by the band, it’s one of my favorites. Courtney Love did the song no justice during Unplugged. Kurt Cobain’s voice is at some of its sharpest, going from deep and whispery to powerful growls at mach speed. Krist Novoselic’s bass work is top notch and Dave Grohl is as great a drummer as ever. Add in the amazing video made by Chris Hafner and it’s a perfect addition to the Nirvana legacy and one of their finest works. And to think, we almost never got to here it. We would have been left with just the Hole version.
