Why is a 1970 Bowie album being shown with so amny refernces to Niravana, it was one cover 16 years ago, the cover itself is porly regraded and is so litte relevence to the album 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:20, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
Well, it is a relevant to those who were introduced to the song through the Nirvana cover. Plus the whole discussion is worth it for the "fuck you, you little tosser" quote from David Bowie. I rarely laugh when I read a wiki article, but I did here...jackbrown (talk) 10:09, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Probably because the Nirvana cover is so good and means so much to so many people :)
"Bowie performed the song live for the first time in 1979 with Klaus Nomi and Joey Arias on Saturday Night Live."
This seems an awfully late live debut for a song recorded in 1970. Not impossible, obviously - Bewlay Brothers took 32 years to make it - but I think a citation would be in order. BTLizard (talk) 12:38, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
TMWSTW was basically "forgotten" until Nirvana covered it. Remember, it was never a single! It's difficult to cite something that doesn't exist, but if you look through the early setlists from teenagewildlife.com you will find that the song never appears. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 05:01, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
