Nirvana are one of the most iconic bands in the history of grunge music and were huge when they hit the scene in the early 90s. However, according to The Cribs frontman Ryan Jarman, Nirvana would not be signed up if they were breaking onto the scene today.
Ryan told Bang Showbiz, “Bands like Nirvana, Sonic Youth, the bands that come up from the underground and cross over, the problem is there's no time to do that now. Even with underground bands, if people like them, they totally get over exposed really quickly, then people move on to the next thing. That's my only concern; that bands can't come up through those channels anymore.”
He added, “It's about the single now, but I think people have got a shorter attention span now, the single, to us, is usually the one we’re least interested in, it's the immediate, the most direct and it's the stuff you put on the album, that's the most satisfying stuff. So, it would a real be a shame if it went that way.”
Meanwhile, Nirvana’s Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic teamed up with The Beatles legend Paul McCartney to play some classic Nirvana tunes.
