Dave Grohl, 2013.

Shirley Manson was in a band called Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie along with John Duncan (technician for Nirvana.) After she released a song called Suffocate Me with a group named Angelfish she was picked up for the band Garbage (who has Butch Vig as their drummer, he produced Nirvana’s Nevermind.) They met her on the same day Kurt died in 94’ - you can read about that here.
Garbage - Vow.
The band’s ‘vevo’ account has been uploading their music videos, give it a visit here!
Nirvana ‘smiley/logo’ beanie can be ordered here.
It’s unsure if Nintendo were actually thanking the band or the movie Nirvana that came out a year before which was based on ‘a successful computer game designer.’
Dave Grohl played the gameboy during the recording of ‘In Utero’ - that’s the only connections I have with any Game Boy and Nirvana.

This is a newly discovered poster from the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC, 1990. Thanks Johnny.
"My name is Johnny Riggs. In 1989 & 1990 I was in a band called Thud. On April 29th 1990 we opened for Nirvana, who was the second band on the bill that night, as they were not yet famous, and they opened for Loop. The show took place at the original 9:30 Club at 930 F St. NW, before they changed locations and moved into a larger venue. My band and I shared the tiny dressing room with Kurt, Krist and Chad. That afternoon, I helped the guys from Nirvana load in their equipment and we ended up palling around all day. Krist gave me and my girlfriend at the time a bunch of t-shirts (a couple of which I may still have somewhere.) Having hours to spare, I asked the band to sign some things. I have since given away or sold most of them, including a beautiful set list on a paper plate sold a few months ago! This is the final piece I own." - Johnny Riggs.

“One sad part about the grunge generation is that they never got around to making those great albums. Kurt Cobain never got around to making his ‘White Album’ and I think that’s a tragedy. Because we’d be leaning on that work now. All of us.” - Billy Corgan.
"I listened to a lot of Nirvana, Hole, PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth, Pixies, obviously the Pumpkins. It was pretty aggressive. And at that time I was getting into Riot Grrrl and all those things, so there was a bit of ‘I am woman, hear me roar.’ [laughs] It was a mental thing, too. Nirvana changed my life." - Nicole Fiorentino.
