At a recent Giants in the Trees concert, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic recently recreated the infamous moment at the 1992 MTV VMA’s where he threw up his bass. It ended better in 2017 though than in 1992, as the bass did not land on Novoselic’s head. You can see a photo below.

Novoselic recently wrote an op ed for Rolling Stone:

“On Wednesday, top officials from Google, Facebook and Twitter will testify before Congress about the scourge of fake news and foreign interference in the 2016 election process. The highly anticipated hearings have been previewed as a major step towards more transparency in political speech, but the track record of such efforts on Capitol Hill is discouraging. It feels the time has come for investors to take matters into their own hands.

The United States was founded on the notion of transparent government. Article I of the Constitution requires Congress to legislate in public. When it comes to political advertising, disclosure of who is disseminating information – fake or otherwise – can mitigate the negative effects on voters. Full disclosure of the actual individuals contributing money – not front groups – also should apply to every kind of federal electioneering.

Transparency is the only way to put the brakes on those who are anonymously trolling our democracy. We’ve seen it work.”
