Nirvana Still Lives According To Confused College Student

07/25/2013
.
(Radio.com) A self-proclaimed Nirvana fan from Virginia Tech University is gaining notoriety on the Internet for a well-intentioned, but severely misguided letter they sent to the band's record label.

In the note, which was revealed on Sub Pop's Tumblr earlier today (July 24), the student asks Nirvana to send a recorded message for the college's homecoming week.

"It would simply be 'What's up Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LETS GO HOKIES!" the student writes.

The unidentified student–who refers to themselves as the school's mascot–goes on to explain that the band would be just one of the artists sending a message for a video collage the school is making, mentioning that Big & Rich, Ying Yang Twins, the Cataracs, Slightly Stoopid and "three famous NFL Players" are also expected to participate.

Besides the obvious problem that Kurt Cobain passed away 19 years ago, there are a few other issues with the request, like the fact that the student says this video will "provide great publicity" for Nirvana and identifies the band as a "her."

Nevertheless, Sub Pop has obliged the request, letting fans know a video is indeed on the way: "Video forthcoming with the script: 'What's up Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LET'S GO HOAGIES!' Or something like that."

The video has since been released and features four Sub Pop team members doing their best (worst?) Nirvana impression. Watch it here.
