Good news, Nirvana fans. For just $40,000, you can have a piece of grunge history. The bass guitar that Kurt Cobain smashed at the end of “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” or at least what remains for it, is for sale. Via Pitchfork:
NME reports that the bass guitar Kurt Cobain smashed at the end of Nirvana’s iconic “Smells Like Teen Spirit” music video is up for auction. Krist Novoselic’s destroyed instrument is expected to sell for up to £25,000 on November 29 at Christie’s in London.
Is anyone else expecting Courtney to put in a bid?
