(Via: Tom C.): Just arrived today in the mail - only listened to In Utero - I can hear an upgraded difference especially on Pennyroyal Tea!
Thanks for the email. Haven’t listened to either one, but have heard that they are slightly better than normal versions.
I want to say first off, I’m aware of the WWE/WCW’s history and really appreciate what Diamond Dallas Page is doing with his ‘DDP Yoga’ - it seems to help a lot of those wrestlers that really need it.
To your question, no. I have no information saying that DDP had permission to use a knock-off version of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ for his theme music. Dave hated it, but wasn’t aware at the time that DDP was a huge Nirvana fan and realized that ‘Teen Spirit’ was a huge anthem for teenagers in the 90’s.
“Jimmy Hart and I did the song together, and Jimmy is a genius. I felt that ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ was the sound of the 90′s that was awesome for me. Dave Grohl was hot cause that was like a rip off of their music. He heard it and was like “WCW owes us money.” We did just enough changing the notes. So it was it, but wasn’t, Teen Spirit.” - Diamond Dallas Page.
In what way? Because of the noise/screaming? I don’t think so, Foo Fighters had songs/demos like that long before the album was released or that song was created. Dave’s time in Nirvana and with Kurt probably influenced that more than it normally would have. I wouldn’t compare the two.
Well that is two random questions.
A - Nirvana pez? I’ve never heard of this request, ever. I know they do special collector’s editions (like KISS for example) so maybe we could get a Nirvana release, but who knows if it would do any good as far as sales go. Permission to use Kurt’s face on something like that would be hard to do.
B - I have no information about Kurt Cobain being a collector or fan of the pez.
You’re welcome, thank you for your questions! I’ll send Pez an email and ask them if they can do a 1/1 (or 1/3) special edition Nirvana pez for me, you and one to give away to someone! Certain requirements need to be met first… That will give me something good to work on.
