Nirvana’s label hopes to
cash in on, i mean, commemorate (my mistake) the 20th birthday of Kurt’s other child: modern music’s indie zeitgeist, with the September 27th “deluxe” multi-format release of grunge’s holy grail: Nevermind, Nirvana’s sophomore album. I know because ‘Nirvana’ keeps sending me friendly email reminders.
Are fans that purchase this becoming part of the problem in so doing? I know Kurt is rolling over in his grave; but what would he actually have to say and would he say it in black sharpie on a white hanes tee if he were here? Should I buy a ouija board to find out? I guess what it comes down to is, ‘Does Corporate Rock Still Suck? Does it really even matter anymore?’
These are the thoughts on the mind of your girl in music as she completes payment for her own pre-order on amazon.com. I know it’s wrong, so what should I do? If you’re the consumer then it’s not selling out, it’s buying in, or something, and that has to be less wrong, right?
