Watch Nirvana Tear Through “Love Buzz” Live at the Paramount in 1991

This month marks 27 years since the world lost Kurt Cobain, so we’re remembering the grunge icon with a flashback to Nirvana's blistering performance of “Love Buzz” live at The Paramount in Seattle in 1991. 

“Love Buzz” was originally released on Dutch rock band Shocking Blue’s debut album At Home in 1969 but took on a whole new life when it became Nirvana’s anthemic debut single in 1988.

The original 7-inch single is a rare find because Sub Pop only pressed 1,000 copies and sold them in advance to their Singles Club subscribers, meaning the 7-inch sold out as soon as it was released – which certainly created a buzz! The song was also included on the band’s debut album Bleach when it arrived in 1989, sans a 45-second intro made up of sounds Cobain compiled from children's records, making that original pressing a rare slice of rock history indeed. 

In the grand scheme of all that was to come, let’s appreciate Nirvana’s first step on the path to global airwave domination in all its grunge glory below.
