    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Dana Carvey, who was doing his "Garth" character at the time, played drums perfectly in sync with U2 (who was on-tour half-way around the world), as they performed "Even Better than the Real Thing." While Carvey played drums, the VMA audience could watch U2's concert, which was displayed on the big screen behind the main stage.

      • Elton John played piano with Guns N' Roses, who performed "November Rain"

      • Krist Novaselic, bassist for Nirvana, threw his base in the air near the end of "Lithium," and as he attempted to catch it, the neck of the bass hit him in the head.

      • Kurt Cobain played & sang the opening few lines of "Rape Me" before Nirvana launched into "Lithium." This was done in response to MTV refusing to allow Nirvana to play "Rape Me."

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Dana Carvey (as "Garth"): Hey, look, it's Bono ... and he's got his little Fly glasses on (in reference to the sunglasses Bono was known for wearing - the glass frames look somewhat like eyes on a fly or insect).

      • Kurt Cobain: "You know ... it's really hard to ... to, uh ... believe everything you read." Nirvana had just won the award for Best New Artist when Kurt made this comment, then gave a wry little smile into the camera. The statement was a reference to an article recently published by Vanity Fair Magazine, which contained a plethora of fabricated stories about Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, one of which, claimed Courtney had used heroin after she found out she was pregnant.
