Song of the Day: Nirvana – “Love Buzz”

Today’s song of the day is a history lesson wrapped in an anniversary. The album where it all began, Nirvana’s debut album Bleach turned 28 on June 15th. A Rolling Stone article published last week states it all started when Nirvana’s Bleach hit record stores in 1989: “The top album in the country that week was The Raw & The Cooked by Fine Young Cannibals, followed by the Beaches soundtrack at #2. ‘I’ll Be Loving You (Forever)’ by New Kids On The Block was the top single, though Richard Marx was about to knock it out with ‘Satisfied.’ Hair metal bands like Poison and Mötley Crüe were packing arenas, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson were ascendant and the last thing on anyone’s mind was a grunge trio from Seattle.” It’s a great that we took notice because Nirvana went on to do big things. For the history lessons, “Love Buzz” actually happens to be a cover song. Originally recorded by Dutch rock band Shocking Blue, it was first released on the group’s 1969 album, At Home. Dirty, trippy, and catchy, Nirvana has and will be a band that stands the test of time.
