Flashback Video: Nirvana Rehearsing In Bedroom – 1988


Do you remember the Nineties? How about a band called Nirvana? If you’re a fan of either you should peep the following video in which a young Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and pre-Dave Grohl drummer Chad Channing woodshed some early Nirvana tunes in a small bedroom.

      Hopefully the book is written better than the website, which was obviously created by an illiterate lunatic.

      “Woodshed” is a term musicians use to mean “practice”… dummy.

  • Mike Roberts

  • Mike Baldwin

    God damn that drummer sucks, thank god they fired him!

    • Alexander Ragnarsson

      so what you’re saying is that chad sucks and that his drumming in Bleach sucks… thats low man

    • Jim Kamlowsky

      Chad Channing does not suck.

    • Darin Clements

      actually Chad left on his own accord. Not fired! just thought that might be prudent

  • Mike Baldwin

    It’s funny how Kurt is facing the wall the whole time

    • Elijah Davenport

      it’s how he would be on a stage though, facing the audience.

    • Hal Fast

      Well Mike, I used to do Sound Engineering at one time for a living and almost exactly Kurt’s age, and I was doing it in that era too, so I think I am somewhat qualified to answer why Kurt was facing the wall. First off, his Microphone is there, and he is facing the same way as the drummer as if they were on stage live playing in front of a crowd. Plus knowing Kurt, he wanted to focus on what he was doing, and not be distracted by what the other band members were doing. I hope that answers your question. Selah…HF

    • Connor

      Pat Smear joined Nirvana in 1993 so I highly doubt it

  • Manuchef

    Took me a while to recognize “Immigrant Song” on 10.50 I was very surprised and happy to hear that. Great to see those vinyls piled up on the corner of the room as well! Took me back there for a while even if I was just only 7/8 years old.

  • ggggg

    Who the fuck ever said Kurt sucked on guitar? He’s playing semi difficult phrases of Love Buzz that I thought the other guitar player was playing until I watched this!!!

  • wsucram15

    Ive seen this before..it is great to see this. Kurt and Krist were great live, I never got to see Chad just Dave who is incredible. But its fun to watch them in the early years. The only band I remember with this much fondness over the years is the Ramones and thats just history for me.
