Smells like student spirit: Homecoming queen asks Nirvana to send in video for campaign

Daisy Wyatt

Almost two decades after Kurt Cobain’s death, Nirvana is still news to some.

A homecoming queen candidate from an American university has sent a letter to Nirvana, asking if the band would send a quick video in support of her election campaign.

Nirvana’s label Sub Pop posted an image of the letter to their Tumblr, in which the candidate mistakes the all-male band for a singular “her”.

“It presents great publicity for them, and as Virginia Tech loves Nirvana, we’d love to have her in our video,” the letter states. “They would be one among artists including Big N Rich, Ying Yang Twins, the Cataracs, Slightly Stoopid, and three famous NFL players.”

It is unknown whether the letter is a spoof, or a genuinely intended note asking the remaining members of Nirvana to send in a quick Vine.

    Given that the letter also refers to “them” and “they”, it’s probably safe to assume that “her” was a typo.
