Best book cover ever

20111020-123801.jpg

I saw this in HMV and immediately found so many things funny about it.

The ‘dramatic’ headline is in a bigger font than the book’s title. David Grohl’s head replaces the ‘O’ in his name. He is wearing some standard red t-shirt. The book’s heading implies it’s about Kurt Cobain, his death or Nirvana rather than about Grohl and Foo Fighters – regardless of the book’s title being taken from Foo Fighters song ‘This is a call.’ The seriousness of the book is shit on by the FREE POSTER exclusively at HMV. The price tag is funny too (may as well be). Also, Grohl didn’t even write it, but was happy to pose for the cover. White background? Lol. Ah man. I love this cover. I might buy this book and find out how Cobain died for the millionth time. Or I could pay £3 more for some next Nirvana fanboy collectors book which was sitting beside this on the shelf!

Now: Listening to Nirvana

Decided to whip out my Nirvana CD collection and have a listen. Didn’t realise I had so many of their albums. I think I have them all. Might watch a few DVDs as well if I am bothered. I have said it before and I will say it again, Nirvana are the best. You know you’re right.

Nevermind Deluxe Edition

Greatest album ever. Can listen to the whole album without skipping any tracks. And 20 years later it’s still the greatest. The deluxe edition has a second CD containing more unreleased bullshit mixes/demos of some of their songs (I say bullshit because they weren’t intended to be heard by us and generally aren’t better than the originals). However it’s always good to listen to more Nirvana.
