Student asks for Nirvana, gets… Nirvana?
SEATTLE -- A Virginia Tech student who asked iconic Seattle grunge band Nirvana to record a message for her school's homecoming -- even though Nirvana's front man Kurt Cobain is nearly 20 years dead -- recently got her wish. The Virginia Tech homecoming queen requested the band make her "a quick video" for the school's 30,000 students celebrating homecoming, AVclub.com reported. The video would be part of a collage along with Big 'N Rich, the Ying Yang twins and other musical acts intended to celebrate the school annual event.
