In the video below Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, Nirvana’s two surviving members, rock the same stadium again Saturday night in Seattle, as their bands played Safeco Field.
“You haven’t aged a day,” quipped Grohl, rock’s reigning goofball, as the unassuming Novoselic quietly walked on stage with a still-handed wave. With that, Foo Fighters — which also includes former Nirvana touring member Pat Smear — blasted through a spunky rendition of “Molly’s Lips,” the Vaselines cover made more famous when Nirvana’s version landed on the grunge heroes’ “Incesticide” rarities compilation.

In the video below, watch Wurm Flesh perform a short set of brutal death metal @ Cafe Colonial in Sacramento, California August 3rd, 2018.
In a city filled with extremely talented Death Metal acts Wurm Flesh stands apart with their fury of shred and groove, ping-ponging back from one to the other. Too much of anything can be a band thing. In a world filled technical bands leaving your jaws on the ground but lacking that primal, raw, aggression and bands delivering relentless groove laden riffs but don’t scratch that shred itch, Wurm Flesh is the band that delivers both sides of the coin.

Asked about the origins of the band’s name in a December 1982 interview with Flipside magazine, Kevin Seconds recalled:
“…I was ordering The Dils single “198 Seconds of The Dils” from Bomp and I wrote it on a desk and the ink it said 97 Seconds; and then we saw this movie Day of the Jackals or something and all through it there were references to 7 Seconds, and the Dils were like our idols… So we were looking for a name and we were looking at this racing book and it said 7 seconds and we said, ‘fuck it, must be an omen,’ so we picked it. It’s a short, intense name.”
