from Blabbermouth.net

NME.com is reporting that the long-awaited NIRVANA box set, “With the Lights Out”, will feature 68 previously unreleased recordings.

Released on November 23 (one day earlier internationally), the four-disc set will feature 81 tracks including 68 previously unreleased recordings — rehearsals, outtakes, late NIRVANA frontman Kurt Cobain’s home demos, as well as a DVD which is confirmed to have unreleased band home movies, live footage, rehearsal footage and 20 full-length video performances. A 60-page booklet will accompany the release.

The title is a reference to a lyric in “Smells Like Teen Spirit”.

A source told NME.com: “I’ve seen some of the footage and it’s amazing stuff. There’s a video of them performing at a friend’s party with Kurt reading lyrics off a sheet of paper on the wall, footage of them covering ‘Seasons In the Sun’ in a studio with Kurt on drums and lots of other great stuff.”

The artwork for the set is currently being put together, with the likely choice being a “landscape” box.

    Oh yeah, a Nirvana boxed set is JUST what you need to push you over the edge for a classic Christmas suicide.

    You’re more likely to kill yourself after spending it with The Simpsons — Jessica, not (of course) Homer.

    How old are you all? 12? This is mine not yours! Stay away from my stuff you ungrateful monkeys!!! Nothing is what you know! It’s not about suicide! It’s about genius anti-pop, bearing your teeth for a grin and a swift middle finger for the masses. If you think the only thing to Kurt Cobain was suicide then top yourself now to sounds of Power Pop Punk Sum41 or some RnB turd rapping to ya’ll bout how his dick’s bigger than yours.

    yeah…you guys could be retarded…how can you say that the main message Nirvana broadcasts is suicide? think about it….this guy had everything in the world and yet he was still unhappy and he took his own life. it makes you think about what we really don’t know about being a rock star and all the stupid shit that comes along with it. kurt obviously wasnt the only musician who couldn’t deal with stardom, there are still many who can’t today. kurt just takes all the publicity and stereotypes because he was one of those musicians who couldnt deal with stardom so much it drove him to the edge. you obviously know nothing about the music and industry and the nirvana legacy at all…and i HOPE you don’t buy the box set.

    Kurt Cobain was an absolute genius and if you dont know that than read into him, do some research. Dont just label him as a fucking advertisement for suicide. Thats not what he was about. Listen to some of the lyrics in his songs! His childhood is what drove him to suicide, since the age of 7 he was miserable and depressed. If you’re gonna talk shit about an absolutely brillian man than you better have something to back it up…I KNOW I DO!
    Rest In Peace Kurt Donald Cobain~
    OH AND REMEMBER…..ITS BETTER TO BURN OUT THAN TO FADE AWAY!

    Scoota Rey is Stupid,Burn in Hell,Your Penis is the size of the baby on the nevermind cover.Kurt is God!

  • Scoota Rey

    I’m sure your “heart-shaped vagina” would be a perfect fit for my “small penis”.

    You should just kill yourself (like a good Nirvana fan) for making the worst attempt at a joke I’ve heard in my life.

    I’m sorry you took my joke so personally. What were you, his groupie or something? Maybe you’re the reason why he killed himself.

    You “hardcore fans” can never take a joke.

    Pussy. (Get it? “Heart-Shaped Vagina”?)
