Out of deep respect for late frontman Kurt Cobain the surviving members of Nirvana have, to date, never played one of their original songs live since breaking up in 1994. Former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, however, recently revealed that he was prepared to change their minds and ask alternative rocker PJ Harvey to step into the vacant role.
When considering the lineup for his Sound City Players supergroup, Grohl told NME that, “someone came up with the idea of doing a Nirvana song with PJ Harvey. Kurt loved her and we love her and we thought, 'Yeah, what would we do?' I said: 'God, what if we were to do 'Milk It' from 'In Utero' with Polly singing?' We all looked at each other like, 'Woah, that would be amazing…' and then she couldn't do it!"
The closest that Grohl, bassist Krist Novoselic and guitarist Pat Smear got to living the glory days of the ‘90s for at least one more gig was at the 12/12/12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert with the legendary Sir Paul McCartney at the helm. However, the song they performed, “Cut Me Some Slack,” wasn’t a Nirvana track, but rather a new collab with McCartney.
Despite the fact that three of the four main Nirvana members are still alive and making music, Grohl says that the group has approached the topic of playing the band's songs very carefully.
The rocker told the Times that Nirvana and its legacy is “hallowed ground;” which is the reason fans don’t hear the Foos covering “Smells Like Teen Spirit” at their concerts.
While it is a bummer that PJ Harvey couldn’t make it out to help the Sound City Players pay tribute to perhaps the greatest grunge band of all time, it seems like the remaining members of Nirvana are still itching for some kind of reunion. What form that will come in, is yet to be seen.
