Can you tell whoever looks after Chad Channing that he isn’t being inducted… It is just Dave, Krist and Kurt.
The text message the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame wrote to Nirvana’s manager letting the band know that Chad Channing, who played with the band from 1988 to 1990, wasn’t getting inducted into the Rock Hall. Despite the fact that he played on Bleach. No class.

Nirvana’s original contract with Sub Pop. Six hundred bucks well spent—not that we had it at the time.

Is that pencil?

When Nirvana took to the majors, nobody expected the level of lasting success that “Nevermind” or its lead single “Smells Like Teen Spirit" would quickly attain. (Above is "Lithium," a classic all its own.) But for many music fans, it proved an entry point — a rare underground-leaning release that rose overground — and unlike fellow flag-bearer Pearl Jam, it’s one that didn’t lose its oomph after the fact. But it caught a few folks off-guard. Former "120 Minutes" host Dave Kendall, who premiered "Smells Like Teen Spirit" on MTV, puts it as such: ”I have to say, quite honestly, as soon as I heard that record and saw that video, I had no idea they were going to be as huge as they were, I was very, very impressed. I was moved but I really didn’t have any idea it would explode to the extent it did. There’s the truth.” MTV has some great features on the album that defined the network for a solid couple of years. Forget the overhype; let’s remember them for what they were: A great band in the right place at the right time. source
