2/4/94 - Canal+, Paris, France. 

During “Pennyroyal Tea,” Kurt’s guitar began to cut out, and during the  bridge in “Drain You” it went out completely, at which point Kurt tossed his guitar, gave a deep scream from frustration and finished singing the song without it.

"I know, let’s pretend this cat is Courtney Love"

- Krist to Kurt (1990)

grungyhipster:

Krist drove back to Seattle alone, sobbing. “Krist had a huge, huge amount of love for Kurt,” Shelli recalled. “We both did. He was family to us. I’d known him for almost half his life.” As a teenager, Shelli had slipped Kurt free Big Macs from behind the counter at the Aberdeen McDonald’s. For a couple of weeks back in 1989, Kurt, Tracy, Krist and Shelli had all shared the same double bed, sleeping in shifts. Kurt had once lived in a van behind their house, and Shelli would bring him blankets to make sure he didn’t freeze to death. Krist and Kurt had driven what seemed like a million miles together, and they had told each other things they had never told another soul. But that Tuesday night, Krist told Shelli he knew in his heart he would never see Kurt alive again, and he was right.

“Smells Like Teen Spirit” is a song by Nirvana, it’s the opening track and lead single from the band’s second album, Nevermind (1991)

Cobain came up with the song’s title when his friend Kathleen Hanna spray painted “Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit” on his wall. (What Hanna actually meant was that Cobain smelled like the deodorant “Teen Spirit”, which his girlfriend Tobi Vail wore.)

“Smells Like Teen Spirit” was Nirvana’s first and biggest hit
