In 1993, iconic rock band Nirvana released its final album. "In Utero," the group's third studio album, hit stores on September 13, 1993, seven months before the untimely death of frontman Kurt Cobain.
Twenty years later, the band is celebrating the anniversary of the release of "In Utero." Nirvana's official Facebook page publicized a deluxe reissue of "In Utero" in celebration of the 20th anniversary, due out in September. The band posted a teaser video of men in a throwback birthing class, a play on the name "In Utero."
Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, and Krist Novoselic staged a Nirvana reunion of sorts last year, performing with Beatles alum Paul McCartney. The Nirvana members hit the stage with McCartney at the 12-12-12 benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy, and later joining him for a performance on "SNL."
"We started playing for the first two hours, maybe, we were so in awe of Paul that we forgot about Nirvana," Grohl told Rolling Stone about the reunion at the 12-12-12 concert. "It took a few hours before I realized, wait a minute . . . we haven't done this in maybe 20 years, Krist and Pat and I – wow, how cool. And f----n' Paul is here, too."
While Grohl, Smear, and Novoselic did play together, no Nirvana songs were performed. "Every once in a while we talk about it," Grohl said. "The thing is, it's sacred ground. If we were ever to do something like that it would have to be right because you want to pay tribute."
