On of the worlds most celebrated bands from the grunge era has finally made its way to the iPhone through the app series known as Tap Tap Revenge. Nirvana, by far and away my favourite band from Seattle, has finally come into the digital age, and what better way to do it than on the iPhone.
Tapulous has taken thirteen of the band’s hits and brought them to a life again for most of us in a way that we’ve come to love. Despite my original reservation about the band being included in the genre, I’m pretty excited that teenagers everywhere will get a taste of what teenage angst really means from the generation that defined it.
Hopefully this is the beginning of the end for crappy top forty radio.
