Kurt Cobain's F-You Letter to MTV

A man after our own heart, Kurt Cobain scrawled this f-you letter to MTV in 1993 and unfortunately never sent it.

It's interesting to think what the consequences would have been if he actually had...maybe nothing would have changed at all, or maybe he would have gone down in history as one of the most popular musicians in the world who really took an active stance against corporate idiocy...maybe his label would have dropped him and he would have gone back to Sub Pop. Who knows. Most people who actually listen to music these days don't seem to have much to do with MTV anyway; heck, they don't even show videos anymore! A lot has changed, and in some ways the old-school has gone down, but you are still missed, Kurt.
