Abbey Road (1969) – The Beatles. London. After the album was released, the London council had to repaint the wall next to the crosswalk every three months to cover fans’ graffiti, and the street signs had to be mounted high above the ground because otherwise they’d just keep getting stolen.

Teens React to Nirvana

In case you missed it, yesterday was the 20th anniversary of legendary Kurt Cobain’s death.

I came across this video a couple weeks ago on the SONiC website and I need to share it. It’s a bunch of teens (17, 18) reacting to Nirvana’s music videos like “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Heart-Shaped Box”. Some of their reactions are hilarious. “When music videos used to be normal. There’s nobody stripping in this one.” One boy says at one point, “Hey, they use that in that one song by Jay-Z! They stole that!” I don’t even…

Anyway, you should watch it. It’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face. I also need to find this “Adam” guy and make him my best friend.

“He was like, really attractive and that’s creepy because he’s dead.” Literally my life. RIP, Kurt. We still miss you. It’s better to burn out than to fade away.
