On this day in 1994, Kurt Cobain tragically died at the age of 27 in his Seattle home. Over the years, fans have wondered where Nirvana would have gone if not for Cobain's untimely death, but the reality is that he suffered from both mental and physical illnesses that would have continued to hinder him creatively in life. An organization called Over The Bridge is aiming to 'change the conversation about mental health in the music community' with their current Lost Tapes of the 27 Club project—an album of songs generated by AI software in the style of various musicians who all died at the age of 27 and struggled with their mental health. The album includes one Nirvana tribute called Drowned in the Sun. Everything in the song was generated by AI software except for the vocals, which were performed by the frontman of a Nirvana tribute band. The song itself is a somewhat unsettling pastiche of the legendary band. Drowned in the Sun certainly wouldn't have been one of Nirvana's best, but AI-generated music as a process is pretty surreal and fascinating in itself. Computers can't replace legends, that's for sure.

Video Killed The Radio Star Is Our New Favorite Low-Effort Meme

Shitposters made themselves busy this holiday weekend, presumably while avoiding high school friends and annoying family members. This new meme is a reference to the Buggles song "Video Killed The Radio Star" - a 1979 song that kickstarted the age of MTV. The meme, which is incredibly basic, labels a person the video and the other the radio star - implying the video's guilt. You see where this is going. Here are some of our favorites.

Funny memes, video killed the radio star memes.

Grunge rockers Nirvana show their distaste for following the rules in this hilarious recording from British music show 'Top of the Pops.' Apparently the show runners would force bands to perform live vocals over pre-recorded back tracks. The Seattle band predictably deemed this to be un-rock and roll, and, instead of backing out, trolled the entire performance of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in their own goofy and irreverent way.
