* During a 1992 concert in Beunos Aires, the crowd had been incredibly mean to the opening band ''Calamity Jane''. This [[BerserkButton pissed off]] Kurt Cobain as he saw it as blatant sexism. His bandmates talked him out of walking away and not playing the concert. What did they do instead? They played all their lesser known songs and played bad intentionally to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CG3J-LHKzAo punish the fans]] along with playing their HiddenTrack from ''Nevermind''. The crowd did not seem to [[FanDumb catch on to what the band was doing at all]].

Added DiffLines:

** It gets better: before Nirvana took the stage, Kurt noticed Axl Rose's piano for Guns N Roses' performance of "November Rain." Wanting to get back at Axl, Kurt spat a bunch of loogies all over the keys. Later on GNR finally took the stage...and Kurt realized he spat all EltonJohn's piano, who was performing a duet with GNR. Whoops.

* While [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrrqU_H4rH8&feature=fvst the infamous VMA concert]] is in-between awkward and funny ([[WriterRevolt they start playing "Rape Me"]] before going to "Lithium", Krist throws his bass up ''and gets hit by it in the head''), Dave yelling "HI [[Music/GunsNRoses AXL]]!" is hilarious.
