Just when you thought the deification of Kurt Cobain as the rock messiah could go no further along come converse to really put the boot in (get it)
Everybody loves Converse, they are 100 Years old this year, but they have announced that they will release a special Kurt Cobain shoe, black and white, featuring artwork and words from the singer's notebooks.
"Distressed in the way Kurt Cobain wore them, the shoes provide a rarely seen glimpse into the head of this musical and lyrical genius with sketches that display his hopes, dreams and lyrics from amazing songs such as Come As You Are."
Kurt, if your listening send down a lightning bolt to whoever wrote that !!!
Now we know for sure that America has gone mad !
What next ? A Dead Kennedy Burger ?
