(Gibson) An old tour van used by sludge rockers The Melvins, and featuring a KISS drawing by Nirvana's Kurt Cobain, is being auctioned on eBay.

The "Melvan," a 1972 Dodge Sportsman Royal Van, was used by alt-rock cult act The Melvins and has appeared in many books on Cobain and Nirvana, as it features a pen drawing of KISS on the side done by Kurt. The seller claims, "the KISS Mural on the side was hand drawn by Kurt Cobain using Sharpie markers shoplifted from the Thriftway grocery store in Montesano, Washington."

The van also features the Black Flag logo on the side (stencilled by the current owner, "Ben") and "NOTALENT" and "MEAN MACHINE" spray-painted on the body.

The seller claims that passengers have included Cobain and Krist Novoselic of Nirvana; Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Matt Lukin of The Melvins; and Greg Hokanson, drummer for Kurt's first band Fecal Matter. He also claims that the original registration expired in April 1994, the month Cobain died. more on this story
