Here’s That Unreleased Nirvana Track You Heard About

Nirvana’s “Sappy” was first released as a hidden track (titled “Verse Chorus Verse”) on the 1993 compilation ‘No Alternative,‘ then later included on the Nirvana box set ‘With The Lights Out.’ The song was originally titled “Sad” and was recorded at home by Kurt Cobain in the late 80s. Confused yet? You can click through to listen to those two and compare them with this latest version, which is thought to be an outtake from the ‘Nevermind’ sessions, recorded at Sound City Studios. Personally, “Sappy” is a favorite Nirvana track of mine, so I’m enjoying listening to this newly discovered version. More

Last night, Nirvana was honored and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the week after the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s passing. Fans had been speculating for weeks as to who might be the one filling Cobain’s role as lead singer, until we found that the vocals would be handled at the ceremony by the likes of Joan Jett, Lorde, St. Vincent, and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth. Those performances went off without a hitch, and the ceremony even included an extra-heavy moment as Courtney Love embraced Dave Grohl during the acceptance speech (there were some mixed reactions to it).

There’s been a lot of chatter surrounding Nirvana’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tomorrow night. Sans Kurt Cobain, the rumor mills have been spinning a number of possible artists that will step in and front the surviving members of the grunge group. Drummer Dave Grohl’s Foo Fighters instagrammed a photo, presumably from event rehearsals, that shows Krist Novoselic’s bass, Pat Smear’s guitar, Dave Grohl’s drumkit and wait for it….Joan Jett’s signature Melody Maker.

Ladies won punk this year? What about women of color in punk?

Earlier this month, Dan Ozzi of Vice’s music blog Noisey wrote a piece entitled, “Sorry, Dudes. The Ladies Won Punk This Year.” Although I appreciate the sentiment as a woman who loves punk, Ozzi made one of the biggest mistakes. He forgot all the bands featuring women of color. Punk is built on the uprising of marginalized people. To help right this wrong, here are some awesome punk bands with women of color. More
