3 Best-selling Nirvana T-shirts at Our Store

Yesterday I wrote about ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl and his huge drumsticks, today I am will feature top 3 Nirvana T-shirts available at our store. These are tees that you purchase most often and there is a sound reason for that which I will try to explain.

Nirvana Nevermind T-shirt

Nirvana Nevermind T ShirtThis tee is actually the best selling item of the entire Nirvana collection. Nevemind is the second studio album of the band. It was released on the 24th of September in 1991. ‘Nevermaind’ became a real commercial hit, primary due to ‘Smells Like a Teen Spirit’, the songs which I still listen to from time to time. The album even replaced Micheal Jackson’s ‘Dangerous’ in the Billboard charts in 1992.

Nirvana Smile Tee

Nirvana Smiley T ShirtPersonally I know people who were this type of shirt but don’t even listen to Nirvana and for me the reason is obvious – the smiley T-shirt look cool, so why not? I search Internet to find anything about logo history and the only thing I found that the Nirvana’s logo was created under the influence of an emblem of a strip club in Seattle called “Lusty Lady”.

Nirvana Come as You Are T-shirt

Nirvana Come as You Are T Shirt‘Come as You Are’ song was written by Kurn Cobain for the ‘Nirvanmind’ album. The song was recorded at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California and extremely quickly. Kurt needed only three takes to record guitar solo and two takes to record vocals. During the vocals recording Kurt accidentally sang “… and I don’t have a gun’ too early after the guitar solo. They decided the mistake sounded cool and kept it in the final recording.

Plus some videos for you =)

In 1977 the Led Zeppelin toured in North America. It was their final concert tour there, which started on the 1st of April and planned to be finished on the 13th of August. Unfortunately the tour was stopped because of Robert Plant’s five year old son death, which was caused by a stomach virus. The band faced lots of other difficulties like misbehavior of ticketless fans who tried to get into Cincinnati Riverfront Coliseum and many others.

Boston Garden is an arena designed by Tex Rickard, boxing producer. No other band performed there more often than the Grateful Dead band. They gave 24 live concerts from 1970 to 1994. The year 1991 is so specific because the band released ‘Dick’s Picks Volume 17’ which was culled from the live performance on the 25th of September.
