    Wow 125 pictures and not a single photo of the 17 year old who won 2 grammy awards, where's Lorde?

    Please folks, get it together. That's Nirvana! Not the Foo Fighters. If you're getting paid to publish this info, how about making sure you hire people that can recognize Nirvana from the Foo Fighters or Queens of the Stone Age?
