There's someone in the comments of a youtube video that claims he watched a video where Kurt punched Axl Rose. I really think that never happened. Did that ever happened?

This never happened. Axl told Kurt to control his wife (Courtney) and keep her in line backstage at the MTV Awards in 1992 when she jokingly asked Axl to be the godfather of Frances.

regularcreep inquired:

Kurt looks quite young in the sappy video. In what year exactly was that video recorded?

The ‘Sappy’ music video isn’t actually a music video by Nirvana. It was fan made years ago and features various footage from various years. A lot of the footage you see in that was from the Kurt Cobain tribute collage created by Dave and Krist played on the MTV Video Music Awards in 1994. That was Kurt Cobain’s homemade footage from the 80’s. He was in his late teens around that time.

September 2nd, 1993 - Nirvana, shown here with RuPaul, attends the MTV Video Music Awards in California, 1993. The band won ‘Best Alternative Video’ for their single, ‘In Bloom.’

Nirvana stated after winning:

Dave Grohl: "They tell you beforehand. I guess if anyone looks surprised when they receive their award.. We do a good job."
Krist Novoselic: "We are, after all, professionals."
Kurt Cobain: "Method acting."
