Essential Nirvana
9 May 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

An absolute must see for fans of Nirvana and the grunge music scene of the early 90's. This is an extremely well made video documentary and as such has value outside this fan base.

Most of the footage is edited from live performances, studio chat shows and MTV type interviews at around the time their smash hit 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' captured a new generation and stormed to the top of the US Billboard Singles chart, ousting Michael Jackson from #1.

The video is cut in such a way as to emphasise the glossy commercialism associated with their success and the irony the band felt as an 'alternative' rock group promoted to a 'mainstream' audience. The title captures this irony perfectly.

Grunge - a small slice of life, the essence of which is captured here on video. Should not be forgotten. 10/10
