Originally conceived by Kurt Cobain, Live ! Tonight ! Sold Out !! is a video document of

Nirvana's rise from scruffy trio out of the Pacific Northwest into one of the most iconic and

important bands in the history of rock music. Combining live material from their 1991-92 Nevermind

tour, Live ! Tonight ! Sold Out! has long been the holy grail for Nirvana fans; and one that has never

been available on DVD until now!Now for the first time a world of Nirvana fans will be able to

experience colour-corrected and digitally remastered live performances of songs like 'Smells Like

Teen Spirit', 'Lithium', 'Breed', 'Drain You' and 'Aneurysm' mixed into loads of interview footage

from across the world, all as originally viewed through the eyes of Kurt Cobain himself.

Nirvana, alternative music was consigned to specialty sections of record stores, and major labels

considered it to be, at the very most, a tax write-off. After the band's second album, 1991's

Nevermind, nothing was ever quite the same, for better and for worse. Nirvana popularized punk,

post-punk, and indie rock, unintentionally bringing it into the American mainstream like no other band

to date. While their sound was equal parts Black Sabbath (as learned by fellow Washington

underground rockers the Melvins) and Cheap Trick, Nirvana's aesthetics were strictly indie rock.

They covered Vaselines songs, they revived new wave cuts by Devo, and leader Kurt Cobain

relentlessly pushed his favorite bands -- whether it was the art punk of the Raincoats or the country-

fried hardcore of the Meat Puppets -- as if his favorite records were always more important than his

own music.

While Nirvana's ideology was indie rock and their melodies were pop, the sonic rush of their records

and live shows merged the post-industrial white noise with heavy metal grind. And that's what made

the group an unprecedented multi-platinum sensation. Jane's Addiction and Soundgarden may have

proven to the vast American heavy metal audience that alternative could rock, and the Pixies may

have merged pop sensibilities with indie rock white noise, but Nirvana pulled at all together, creating a

sound that was both fiery and melodic. Since Nirvana was rooted in the indie aesthetic but loved pop

music, they fought their stardom while courting it, becoming some of the most notorious anti-rock

stars in history. The result was a conscious attempt to shed their audience with the abrasive In Utero,

which only partially fulfilled the band's goal.

But by that point, the fate of the band and Kurt Cobain had been sealed. Suffering from drug

addiction and manic depression, Cobain had become destructive and suicidal, though his

management and label were able to hide the extent of his problems from the public until April 8,

1994, when he was found dead of a self-inflicted shotgun wound. Cobain may not have been able to

weather Nirvana's success, but the band's legacy stands as one of the most influential in rock & roll


Kurt Cobain (vocals, guitar) met Chris Novoselic (born Krist Novoselic) (bass) in 1985 in Aberdeen,

WA, a small logging town 100 miles away from Seattle. While Novoselic came from a relatively

stable background, Cobain's childhood had been thrown into turmoil when his parents divorced

when he was eight. Following the divorce, he lived at the homes of various relatives, developing a

love for the Beatles and then heavy metal in the process. Eventually, American hardcore punk worked

its way into dominating his listening habits and he met the Melvins, an Olympia-based underground

heavy punk band.

Cobain began playing in punk bands like Fecal Matter, often with the Melvins' bassist Dale Crover.

Through the Melvins' leader Buzz Osborne, Cobain met Novoselic, who also had an intense interest

in punk, which meant that he, like Cobain, felt alienated from the macho, redneck population of

Aberdeen. The duo decided to form a band called the Stiff Woodies, with Cobain on drums,

Novoselic on bass, and a rotating cast of guitarists and vocalists. The group went through name

changes as quickly as guitarists, before deciding that Cobain would play guitar and sing. Renamed

Skid Row, the new trio featured drummer Aaron Burkhart, who left the band by the end of 1986 and

was replaced by Chad Channing. By 1987, the band was called Nirvana.
Nirvana began playing parties in Olympia, gaining a cult following. During 1987, the band made ten

demos with producer Jack Endino, who played the recordings to Jonathan Poneman, one of the

founders of the Seattle-based indie label Sub Pop. Poneman signed Nirvana, and in December of

1988, the band released their first single, a cover of Shocking Blue's "Love Buzz." Sub Pop

orchestrated an effective marketing scheme, which painted the band as backwoods, logging-town

hicks, which irritated Cobain and Novoselic. While "Love Buzz" was fairly well-received, the band's

debut album, Bleach, was what began the ball rolling. Recorded for just over 600 dollars and

released in the spring of 1989, Bleach slowly became a hit on college radio, due to the group's

consistent touring.

Though Jason Everman was credited as a second guitarist on the sleeve of Bleach, he didn't appear

on the record; he only toured in support of the album before leaving the band at the end of the year

to join Soundgarden and then Mindfunk. Bleach sold 35,000 copies and Nirvana became favorites of

college radio, the British weekly music press, and Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, and Dinosaur Jr., which

was enough to attract the attention of major labels.

During the summer, Nirvana released "Sliver"/"Dive," which was recorded with Mudhoney's Dan

Peters on drums and produced by Butch Vig. The band also made a six-song demo with Vig, which

was shopped to major labels, who soon began competing to sign the group. By the end of the

summer, Dave Grohl, formerly of the D.C.-based hardcore band Scream, had become Nirvana's

drummer and the band signed with DGC for $287,000. Nirvana recorded their second album with

Vig, completing the record in the summer. Following a European tour supporting Sonic Youth in the

late summer, Nevermind was released in September, supported by a quick American tour. While

DGC was expecting a moderately successful release, in the neighborhood of 100,000 copies,

Nevermind immediately became a smash hit, quickly selling out its initial shipment of 50,000 copies

and creating a shortage across America.

What helped the record become a success was "Smells Like Teen Spirit," a blistering four-chord

rocker that was accompanied by a video that shot into heavy MTV rotation. By the beginning of

1992, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" had climbed into the American Top Ten and Nevermind bumped

Michael Jackson's much-touted comeback album Dangerous off the top of the album charts; it

reached the British Top Ten shortly afterward. By February, the album had been certified triple


Nirvana's success took the music industry by surprise, Nirvana included. It soon become apparent

that the band wasn't quite sure how to handle their success. Around the time of Nevermind's release,

the band was into baiting their audience -- Cobain appeared on MTV's Headbanger's Ball in drag, the

group mocked the tradition of miming on the BBC's Top of the Pops by Novoselic constantly

throwing his bass into the air and Cobain singing his live vocals in the style of Ian Curtis, and their

traditional live destruction of instruments was immortalized on a Saturday Night Live performance

that ended with Novoselic and Grohl sharing a kiss -- but by the spring, questions had begun to arise

about the band's stability. Cobain married Courtney Love, the leader of the indie rock/foxcore band

Hole, in February of 1992, announcing that the couple was expecting a child in the fall.

Shortly after the marriage, rumors that the couple were heavy heroin users began to circulate and the

strength of the rumors only increased when Nirvana canceled several summer concerts and refused

to mount a full-scale American tour during the summer. Cobain complained that he was suffering

from chronic stomach troubles, which seemed to be confirmed when he was admitted to a Belfast

hospital after a June concert. But, heroin rumors continued to surface, especially in the form of a

late-summer Vanity Fair article which implied that Love was using during her pregnancy. Both Love

and Cobain denied the article's allegations, and publicly harassed and threatened the article's author.

Love delivered Frances Bean Cobain, a healthy baby girl, on August 18, 1992, but the couple soon

battled with Los Angeles' children's services, who claimed they were unfit parents on the basis of the

Vanity Fair article. The couple was granted custody of their child by the beginning of 1993.
