Kurt Cobain Enjoyed Drawing Pornographic Scooby Doos

Krist Novoselic MTV Unplugged Hivecast with Matt Pinfield

The history of Nirvana has been written and re-written many times over, and the details of Kurt Cobain’s life have similarly been thoroughly excavated. So it’s something of a surprise that when Krist Novoselic went in-depth on the band’s early days on this latest episode of the Hivecast with Matt Pinfield, there are still all-new things to learn about the icon of '90s alt-rock. For instance, Cobain’s affection for … Scooby Doo? “He was an artist, and he drew these Scooby Doo cartoons. He lived in this apartment for a while where he defaced the hallways with these pornographic Scooby Doos. It was, like, penises and Scooby and Shaggy,” he laughs. “It was really bad, but it was well-done. It was Shaggy! He was an amazing illustrator.”

There are plenty of other gems that don’t pervert a beloved children’s cartoon in the hour-plus sit-down between Novaselic and Pinfield. If you’ve ever wondered what the first punk record Krist Novoselic bought was, whose mom’s house the Melvins practiced in, how much everybody in Seattle loved Soundgarden, why the house Dave Grohl was living in when he first joined Nirvana didn’t have a front door, or how the band really reacted when they found out that they had the top single in the country, this week’s edition of The Hivecast with Matt Pinfield is a must-listen.
