The Wrap reports that BMG has nabbed the rights to “Virgin Music Publishing Companies, Famous UK Music Publishing and selected current songwriters from Sony/ATV and EMI Music Publishing,” which include Nirvana, Iggy Pop, and Tears for Fears.

Sony Corporation of America and a group of investors acquired EMI Music Publishing in June, and Sony/ATV Music Publishing administers EMI on behalf of the group. It had to sell the catalogues as a condition of the acquisition.

Virgin Publishing’s catalogue includes Kurt Cobain’s songs for Nirvana, including “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “Come As You Are” and “About A Girl.”
