Mary Lou Lord and Maryanne Window had a recent conversation in the new “How The Hell Did That Happen?” and Lou Lord shared an interesting story about Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.

Lord, said that she had a phone call from Kurt Cobain, and Kurt said that a British band is suing them because they also called their band as “Nirvana.”

Mary Lou Lord:

“I also remember being on the phone with Kurt [Cobain] and Kurt was really in a bad mood. I asked what was happening.”

Kurt Cobain:

“There’s this British band and they are a bunch of old guys, they are suing us because they are also called Nirvana.” 

Mary Lou Lord:

“Oh geez, how much do they want?”

Kurt Cobain:

“Fifty thousand dollars!”

Mary Lou Lord:

“And I thought that was a lot of money. Now that I think about that band, I’ve heard a little bit about them since because with YouTube you can find stuff.

I think of that band and go “man, if they only held out longer they probably could have asked for a million dollars. Anyway, Kurt was not happy about that. In fact, fifty-thousand dollars to them back then was everything.”
