Nirvana

The surviving members of Nirvana reunited on Saturday in Los Angeles for a show with Beck, St. Vincent and more. 

On Friday, we learned of the planned reunion of the legendary grunge group. The band originally disbanded in 1994 after the death of their lead vocalist Kurt Cobain. They have done projects together between then and now and have reunited a few times since their breakup.

The Art Of Elysium was founded in 1977 and works with artists for the benefit of others.

“For over twenty-one years, we’ve paired volunteer artists with communities in Los Angeles to support individuals in the midst of difficult emotional life challenges like illness, hospitalization, displacement, confinement, and/or crisis,” says their website. “We serve medically fragile children, teens, adults, seniors, those dealing with social, emotional and mental health issues, and the homeless.”

Cheap Trick, Marilyn Manson and L7 also performed at the benefit show. 

More one Nirvana 

The band’s smash hit “Smells Like Teen Spirit” went over one billion views on YouTube last month. The Nevermind opener was also the second most-watched video of the 1990s on YouTube.

Hitting one billion views on YouTube isn’t easy. As of today, there are only 184. This puts Nirvana in the upper echelon of video content. Gun N’ Roses claimed the most-watched videos of the 1980s and 1990s with their hits “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “November Rain,” with “Smells Like Teen Spirit” grabbing the number two spot.
