Nirvana's third album and their final studio album, 'In Utero', climbed to number one on the U.S. album chart on this day in 1993. The name that Kurt Cobain wanted to give the album originally was quite different.
New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli and New York Business Development Corporation CEO Pat MacKrell on Wednesday announced a $3.2 million loan to Nirvana Water, based in Boonville in Oneida County.
The loan marks a milestone of 1,000 loans granted to small businesses in New York using funds from the New York State Common Retirement Fund.
On this day, April 17, 1991, a grunge band based out of Aberdeen, Washington made up of Kurt Cobain on vocals and guitar, Krist Novoselic on bass, and Dave Grohl on drums, debuted a new song during their gig at the OK Hotel in Seattle. That single, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" would go on to score Nirvana a number one hit on the Modern Rock chart...
We thought for sure that by now, on the 19th anniversary of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's death, every last shred of documentation regarding the iconic rocker's suicide would have been unearthed. Turns out we were wrong.
