Nirvana Reform (Or Did They?)

by Paul Cashmere on October 7, 2018

in News

It was billed as a Nirvana reunion but when is a Nirvana reunion really a Nirvana reunion?

This one featured Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic with Pat Smear. They’ve performed together before after Kurt’s death … but this time they called in Nirvana.

The Line-up featured various singers John McCauley of Deer Tick, Joan Jett of the Blackhearts and Brody Dalle of The Distillers.

This ‘reunion’ happened at Cal Jam in San Bernadino on Saturday night.

Cute? Yes! Nirvana? No!

The setlist for the 2018 faux-Nirvana reunion was:

Nirvana 2018 Reunion Setlist:
Serve The Servants (with John McCauley)
Scentless Apprentice (with John McCauley)
In Bloom (with John McCauley)
Breed (with Joan Jett)
Smells Like Teen Spirit (with Joan Jett)
All Apologies (with Joan Jett and Brody Dalle)
