There’s a petition for a Nirvana reunion with the part of Kurt being played by…WHO?

There are some bands that should never, ever get back together, especially when an essential member is no longer with us. The Hip without Gord? Blasphemy. Soundgarden with someone else other than Chris singing? Crazy. A Clash reunion without Joe? Never. And Nirvana without Kurt? Are you kidding?

Yet that’s the plan of this Facebook campaign: A Nirvana reunion with the part of Kurt being played by–wait for it–Chad Kroeger of Nickelback.

Before we get all bent out of shape, take a look at the Facebook post, which borders on ridiculous.

The goal is to get this new version of Nirvana to perform on January 1, 2019, at the Nirvana Hair and Beauty Bar in Manchester, England. Yeah, that’s never gonna happen.

Props, though, to the hair salon. They’re getting worldwide attention and plenty of traffic to their otherwise obscure Facebook page. The comments are fun to read, too.
