With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“Forget the hearse cause I’ll never die” February 21, 2015

Kurt Cobain was quite open about the music he loved and was very clear that he ripped off the riff for Nirvana’sSmells Like Teen Spirit” from Boston’sMore Than A Feeling“. Which for me are both great songs. Did you what the first song that Kurt learned to play on the guitar that he got for his 14th birthday was? It was another slice of classic rock, none other than AC/DC’sBack In Black“. Incidentally don’t you think it’s sad that Kurt would have been 48 yesterday. A great loss to rock music! Talking of great losses, AC/DC’s Bon Scott died 35 years ago on 19th February 1980, just a day before Kurt Cobain’s 13th birthday.
