I don't see where anyone has done anything in the name of Nirvana?! There is 1 song on the album with the surviving members of nirvana and sir paul, but that was the song they did for the Sandy Relief concert. Just because members of an old band get together does not mean they (or ANYONE besides courtney love)are profiting off of nirvana's "glory". Dave Grohl is so far removed and has so surpassed nirvana at this point that he is seen more as a foo fighter, not as a member of nirvana. So, where in this entire album is nirvana mentioned or any song that even remotely sounds like nirvana. I can even bet that Nirvana is not even mentioned on the website or packaging except to note which members of the project were once in Nirvana (which everyone in the project would do with his or her other respective bands). So, chill and enjoy the music!
