If you haven’t already heard the story about the Virginia Tech student who wasn’t aware that Nirvana haven’t been a band since frontman Kurt Cobain’s death (or that it’s a band, not a she) then you are definitely missing some serious funny stuff.
Earlier this week, a student at Virginia Tech sent a letter to Sub Pop asking if it was possible for the band (who they refer to as a she) would record a video of them saying, “What’s up Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LETS GO HOKIES!”
The letter also stated that the unnamed person, who is apparently the school’s mascot, would be getting audio from other artists such as Big N Rich, Slightly Stoopid, the Cataracs, Ying Yang Twins and three famous NFL players.
Now, not to bust the mascot’s bubble, the staff at Sub Pop decided to given them what they asked for, but instead with was a Nirvana spoof endorsing said homecoming candidate.
You can read the letter (which has taken the internet by storm) as well as Sub Pop’s response below:
