A 'fan' has written to Sub Pop requesting that Nirvana endorse her campaign for Homecoming Queen.
During the frenzied years of the 90s, Sub Pop must have dealt with some bizarre requests. Household names thanks for the grunge explosion, the Seattle label sat at the centre of a global media frenzy.
Yet this is... bizarre. Almost 20 years after the death of Kurt Cobain an ever so slightly muddled 'fan' has written to the label asking for Nirvana to endorse her campaign for Homecoming Queen.
The label posted the request on their Tumblr, adding the following statement by way of explanation:
"Earlier today in the Sub Pop mailbag, we received an enthusiastic message from a college student running for homecoming queen. She asked for a video affirming support from our one time recording artists, Nirvana, in order to aid her campaign in becoming homecoming queen. We dressed up and obliged."
"Video forthcoming with the script: "What’s up Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LET’S GO HOAGIES!" Or something like that."
