It may not be the coolest move to throw your own birthday party, but at least you get the celebration you want. The 20-year tributes to Nirvana’s Nevermind have been an unregulated free-for-all ranging from dignified (Krist Novoselic’s all-star bash, SPIN’s cover-songs tribute) to decidedly un- (Chris Brown, “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” ’nuff said). Pearl Jam on the other hand, are still together, and thus capable of controlling the agenda for the 20th birthday of their watershed 1991 record, Ten.
LOL at the last line. But so true… and thank goodness for that. (And there’s a somewhat self-serving line up there, as well, but I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. 😉 * pokes fun at source * )
