Every once in a while something comes along and changes the conventions of popular music. When Nirvana released their sophomore album, Nevermind, music would never be the same.
Nirvana remains one of the most popular bands of all time. Combining the sounds of grunge, alternative, punk, and even metal, Nirvana had something to offer any lover of good music. When lead singer Kurt Cobain passed away in 1994, he left an irreplacable sonic void and a legacy of groundbreaking, inspired songs.
As popular today as he was 15 years ago, Kurt’s image still adorns posters, lunchboxes, t-shirts, journals, and more of fans worldwide. Now, Kurt Cobain joins the pantheon of musical legends immortalized in plastic with the Official Kurt Cobain Action Figure from NECA. Based on his appearance in the video for the breakthrough hit Smells Like Teen Spirit, this expertly crafted, articulated figure includes his blue Fender Mustang guitar, rendered in painstaking detail, and a “gymnasium floor” base. Be on the lookout for Kurt with guitar in hand once again on store shelves late in June. Here is our first look at NECA’s Smells Like Teen Spirit Kurt Cobain.
