|NFC News The Year in Nirvana: 2005|
With 2006 approaching fast it is time to look back at 2005 in terms of what happened in Nirvana land. It's been a fairly quiet year when it comes to Nirvana-related news and releases. Two major highlights dominate the year when we look back: the "Classic Albums" DVD on the Nevermind album and of course the "Sliver" album.
To recap some of the main events of the year:
"They were the most important group of the Nineties, but Boyz II Men are relegated here to appearing in a video watched by smacked-out rock star Blake (Kurt Cobain look-alike Michael Pitt). Hailed by some as a masterful meditation on a tormented soul, Last Days is an insufferably pretentious portrait of a mewling loser who's overly fond of Cocoa Krispies and shotguns. But there's a nice cameo by Ricky Jay as a private dick babbling about Chinese magicians."
The album, Sliver: The Best of the Box was released on November 1 in the US and featured a song from the 1985 "Fecal Matter" demo as well as two other tracks that most Nirvana fans had never heard before.
