“I remember years ago asking ‘How successful do you think a band can be if they mixed really heavy Black Sabbath with the Beatles? What would you be able to do with that?’ I mean, I wanna be able to do all different kinds of music. I wanna be kind of like Led Zeppelin in a way but be totally extreme punk rock and then do really wimpy pop songs. And it just doesn’t seem like it’d work because no one would be able to tell that you’re the same band. At that point I kind of knew we didn’t really have an unique sound. I didn’t think that we were original enough. I asked a lot of people about this and I was always toying with the idea.” - Kurt Cobain
On today (Mar. 5) in 1991 Nirvana play at The Bronx in Edmonton, Canada. According to an attendee, Kurt stopped playing in the middle of a song to tell the crowd he needed a cigarette. Multiple people apparently
threw cigarettes to him, and then he resumed the song.
