April 5th 1994 is a day that will forever live in infamy, at least to me. I was all of 12 years old when rock idol Kurt Cobain took his own life, just as his band, Nirvana, was at the peak of their popularity. I was 12 years old, and like most everyone else my age, was a huge Nirvana fan. It seems like only yesterday I was sitting on my dad’s old John Deere riding mower, cutting the grass, with Incesticide blaring on my yellow Sony Sports Walkman. I had a lot of tapes, but for some reason that was always the choice for a Sunday summer afternoon lawn mowing.
For anyone out there who’s wondering what my favorite Nirvana song is… I can’t pick just one, but here are 2 of my favorites.
It’s hard to believe over 15 years have passed since Kurt’s Cobain’s tragic death. It was a terrible day for everyone who loved his music, and although Nirvana may have changed the face of music it was Kurt Cobain who defined an entire generation. If I had to choose a favorite song ( impossible, and very unrealistic) it might be All Apologies from the Unplugged C.D. It’s Cobain at his finest, and like a majority of his songs very emotional, but wildly confrontational at the same time. The lyrics are pure genius ” I wish I was like you easily amused” , and the trance like melody can be very hypnotic if your not well-behaved. As far as this contest goes It’s nothing more than a tribute, and our way of sharing free wax with fellow collectors. So come as you are, and who knows with a little luck you may leave with free wax
