Kurt Cobain And Dave Grohl Wearing The Same Michael Jackson Tee Shirt

As a young boy Kurt Cobain was given a caricature assignment for an art course.  Cobain drew this beautiful Michael Jackson grabbing his crotch work of art that his art teacher deemed inappropriate to be displayed in a school hallway.

His teacher could have predicted that years later in 1992 the Nirvana “Nevermind” album would replace Jackson’s “Dangerous” album at the top of the Billboard charts.  I’m sure Kurt was a fan of Jackson as a kid but during the grunge era there were some rather funny King of Pop sightings in Nirvana’s history and beyond.

Here’s a cool photo of Kurt wearing a “Afro-Era” Michael Jackson t-shirt after a gig.


Maybe they got a two for one special because Dave Grohl wore the same shirt in on December 13, 1993 on Nirvana MTV Live & Loud.

Seems like the photo of Jackson on the shirt was taken around 1976-77 pre Off The Wall era…

Grohl kept the spirit of the shirt alive and wore it for the first Foo Fighters show ever!!! That historic show took place on the second floor of a West Marine boating supply store in Seattle, Washington on February 19, 1995.

Do you also remember that in 1992, Nirvana sent a Michael Jackson impersonator to the stage to accept their Best Alternative Video MTV Moonman award? The impersonator jokingly claimed that he had resigned his role as “King of Pop” to become the “King of Grunge.”
