The three members of Nirvana are inarguably some of the most creative original talented musicians to emerge in rock since....? But better then that they were a bunch of smart asses with a mission. They specifically choose a a stubbornly butchered rendition of their most popular song to put on their video as a comical trick on those who would look no deeper into the band then it's radio played singles. If this video doesn't capture the spirit of the post punk alternative movement I don't know what does. Small glimpses into the band's opinions and behaviors, self mocking views through the public's sometimes stupid eyes, corporate knocking, apathetic, smart. It's all there. The band takes some of they're most and least popular and throw them together on this 90 min montage of imagery and good music.
