What if Kurt Had His Way?

I'm in a Nirvana and "Nevermind" state of mind today, so I thought I would blog about a little fun fact about the record.

The reason the album became so popular is because of the first song and first single "Smells Like Teen Spirit." But what if that song was never included on the album? Kurt Cobain actually wanted to cut it from "Nevermind" because after listening to it he thought it sounded too much like Boston's "More Than A Feeling." He was afraid the band and the record company would get sued.

Have a listen and see for yourself.

Here's Boston's "More Than A Feeling."

And here's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."

What do you think??

Luckily Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl and their record company talked Kurt down from this ledge.
