When Blur came on the scene their mission was to ‘kill grunge’ and in many ways they actually succeeded, well certainly in the UK anyway, with the release of the poptastic classic ‘Park Life’. Funny how they then ended up making the greatest Nirvana tribute with ‘Song 2’ taken from their Pavement influenced self-titled album ‘Blur’. Loud/quite verse/chorus, gigantic hooks and bombastic dirty guitars..I’m certain Kurt would of approved.
Interesting note: Damon Albarn once said “If Kurt Cobain had played football, he'd be alive today. I know it sounds like the most ridiculous thing, but if you play football, you'd know what that means” Yes it might seem a curious connection but I 100% agree.
