What If Nirvana didn't break up



If Grohl did want Nirvana to keep going would the band work with Mudhoney's lead singer?

I think technically yes, but it wouldn't have a fraction of the cult following/status that it did with Cobain.

Nirvana without Kurt Cobain isn't Nirvana. The same way Sublime isn't sublime without Bradley Nowell. They did the right thing

Now I wish that had happened. Mark Arm would've been hysterical in Nirvana, mainly because he's probably the only person alive who wouldn't have taken it seriously at all.

We are talking about a guy who in the song "Sick of Your Shtik" asks the unnamed subject, "Why don't you blow your brains out, too?" Which was awesome.

I dont think it would have been his choice... Noveselic had more control than him.

If Cobain wouldnt have killed himself Grohl wouldve left eventually to make his arena rock...

about all they could do that would not suck horribly would be tour as Nirvana sort of like the surviving members of the Doors did with the guy from the Cult.

I'm just glad they were over - however and whatever brought it to its end.

Is there anybody other than Paul McCartney that has been in 2 bands of that magnitude like Dave Grohl?

No. See Blind Melon in 2008. Was cool to see live, but not the same without Shannon Hoon.

We wouldn't have Foo Fighters, which I think is a much better band than Nirvana

I honestly can't imagine having an extreme opinion on Foo Fighters. But Nirvana is a whole hell of a lot better. Great damn band. But I'm glad Grohl still is making music... though I prefer Queens of the Stone Age.

Actually, the worst part of this hypothetical is Mudhoney breaks up.

Really? I haven't liked much of what FF have done since colour and the shape.

I'm not a HUGE fan, but I think they are better than Nirvana... I used to be a fan, but have really lost interest over the past couple of years.

In Your Honor was the last album that I really took a listen to. Although, I think what they did on Wasting Light was pretty awesome. Loved the Garage Sound.
