Apparently it’s been 10 years since Kanye famously interrupted Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs and I’mma let you finish reading this blog but this is not the most heart-sinking, controversial moment in VMAs history. KURT COBAIN HAD ONE OF THE BEST VMA MOMENTS OF ALL TIME! ALL TIME! *shrugs and exits*

Nirvana was the hottest thing in the world by the time the 1992 VMAs, so naturally MTV wanted to have the Seattle trio perform the big hit on the show. Only problem was Kurt was sick of anything remotely sharing a stench with teen spirit. He wanted to do “Rape Me.” MTV said no. Kurt didn’t budge. MTV pleaded and eventually Kurt “agreed.”

Show goes live, Nirvana takes the stage and Kurt pulls one of the greatest pranks in national television history.
