I am currently part of the campaign to get Nirvana's, Smells like teen spirit to number 1 in the UK charts! It has become a pattern that the winner of the X factor gets the number 1 Christmas single every year. This pattern was beaten last year when a Facebook campaign tried to get Rage against the Machine to number 1 over the X factors, Joe Mcelderry.
It is the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's album 'Nevermind' this year. and many think it would be an amazing tribute to the lead singer, Kurt Cobain who shot himself when he was 27 in 1994. If nirvana was number 1.
Obviously my love for Nirvana and Kurt Cobain is one of the main reasons i support this, but more than that, The music industry has become this business. It no longer represents appreciation for music or talent. It is purely about making money.
Nirvana becoming number 1 would be an amazing way to remind people of how it used to be. and how music has lost all its soul and talent now. The one's who do have talent and passion are never in the charts and i really hope this can start to change that.
These are the instructions that the campaign starters posted on Facebook-
Download 'Smells like teen spirit' by Nirvana from any legal download site (Amazon, iTunes, HMV, 7Digital etc) from Sunday 18th December 00:01 to Saturday 24th December 23:59. The final chart is announced on Christmas day itself
Please support this campaign if you can! It would be awesome, and make my Christmas day a little bit better!
