Fans Weigh In On A Nirvana Reunion With Chad Kroeger


Someone in the UK has set up a Facebook page for a Nirvana reunion with Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger filling in for the late Kurt Cobain.

“The campaign starts here,” wrote user Be Reet, who listed Jan. 1, 2019 as the date of an expected performance at the Nirvana Hair and Beauty Bar in Manchester.

As of Friday morning, more than 825 people indicated that they’re going and another 2,400 are interested.

In the comments section, one person dubbed the group "Nickelvana."

Reactions to the idea are mixed. “This needs to happen,” wrote one. Another opined: “Epic.”

But another comment reads: “People will come from far and wide just to watch the organizers of this event get hung, drawn and quartered.”

Of course, not everyone understood that it’s just a joke.

“Aw hell nah.. This is a horrible idea. Chad isn’t even close to Kurt’s talent. Please don’t ruin Nirvana’s name with this.”
