nirvana's greatest ever moment (happy 40th bday, kurt)


would have been 40 today. to celebrate this had a poll for fans to vote on what was greatest ever moment.

1. Reading Festival 1992
2. MTV Unplugged
3. 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'
4. Singing the wrong words on 'Top Of The Pops'
5. 'Nevermind' knocking Michael Jackson off the top of the US charts
6. The band's performance on 'The Word'
7. The 'Nevermind' album cover
8. 'Come As You Are'
9. Starting a food fight and getting thrown out of the 'Nevermind' launch party
10. Pretending to be Madonna's representatives and crank calling The Lemonheads

for me the best part about this list is that i was at the 1992 and right up at the front when they played, i wouldn't say it was the greatest moment in my life, but it was pretty great.

The sound of this video reminds me of the rocket falling to earth one--only, not as enjoyable.

And I completely disagree with moment #2.

I'm with jackson on #2, and I think they should add the SNL appearance (with Charles Barkley as host) that had Dave and Chris Novoselic kissing passionately in the background during the goodnights.

I don't think that they had SNL in England during the 90's plus NME is an british music paper so it might explain this list. I wonder what the top ten US nirvana moments would be?
