    After the success of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" the band and label debated about releasing "Come as You Are" or "In Bloom" as the next single from the album due to Cobain's concerns over similarity of the former with the Killing Joke song "Eighties" (1984). After some persuasion by the management company, Cobain agreed to release "Come as You Are" as the second single because of its commercial potential. Killing Joke were upset over the song, and there were rumors that a lawsuit had been filed over the song, though the suit never materialized.

    The Morning Show is playing tribute today to Kurt Cobain, lost on this day in 1994 from suicide. Help is here if you need it: https://bit.ly/2gFnmM2

    Kurt Cobain was born on this date back in 1967! Happy birthday, Kurt! You are missed.

    The video for "Come As You Are" was directed by Kevin Kerslake, who also did Nirvana's videos for "In Bloom" and "Sliver." According to Kerslake, Cobain didn't want to be in the video, as seeing himself on magazine covers was making him sick of himself. The record company, however, wanted their stars to be seen, so Kerslake shot them through water and used other devices to obscure their images.

    Is there anything we haven't already said about Nirvana? Probably not. Here is a round-up of KEXP listeners remembering the release of 'Nevermind' 25 years ago: http://blog.kexp.org/2016/09/21/kexp-listeners-remember-nirvana-part-one/
