9780312206635: Nirvana: The Chosen Rejects

"Basically, this is the real thing. No rock star contrivance, no intellectual perspective, no master plan for world domination. You're talking about four guys from rural Washington who wanna rock..."--Everett True, Melody Maker, March 18th, 1989

In 1992, Nirvana's breakthrough anthem, "Smells Like Teen Spirit," introduced a new underground sound to the mainstream music world. The record-breaking sales and global recognition that followed should have been a welcomed payoff for the hard-working punk band. Instead, that bright optimism quickly faded into bitter dissatisfaction, as the trio became conflicted about their unexpected success, and about having an audience that was the epitome of everything they had attempted to rebel against.

Nirvana's sonic catapult from obscurity to international stardom and their chart-topping success changed the face of rock music world-wide. In Nirvana: The Chosen Rejects, the authors have used a wealth of sources, including personal interviews with Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, in order to reconstruct Nirvana's meteoric rise and the subsequent fall of their troubled lead singer. The result is a front row perspective of the musical influences that helped nurture Nirvana's seminal sound, the stories about the creation of their albums, and the ideas that shaped their songs. Nirvana: The Chosen Rejects also contains a comprehensive discography and an A-Z listing of every Nirvana song officially released.

Kurt St. Thomas and Troy Smith were an award-winning programming team at WFNX-FM, Boston (MA), one of the nation's top alternative radio stations in the early 1990's. The pair wrote and produced the definitive Nirvana interview compact disc, Nevermind, It's an Interview, as well as interview CDs for Paul Weller, The Breeders, and Frank Black. St. Thomas lives in New York City, and Smith resides on Cape Cod, MA.

About the Author:

Kurt St. Thomas, a former radio programmer, is a music industry player, and an award-winning filmmaker who runs his a film production company. He lives in New York City.

Troy Smith works in the radio industry and lives in Cape Cod.

From Booklist:

When Kurt Cobain died, fans proclaimed him the generational equal of John Lennon, thereby causing wholesale angst and distress among Beatlemaniacs. Ten years later, St. Thomas and Smith offer more nuanced assessment of Cobain and his band Nirvana's career. Admitted fan St. Thomas was definitely in thrall to Nirvana, but the band's black mood when he spoke with its members a couple of years after their meteoric rise to stardom via the seminal "Smells Like Teen Spirit" suffuses this look at the end of the band, in which it is lamented and celebrated more or less simultaneously and special emphasis is put on band members' disappointment at the hollowness of success. The inner torture that drove Cobain to suicide may be unknowable, but the book provides some reasonable insights. Mike Tribby
