Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain never really settled into the limelight like his bass guitarist bandmate Krist Novoselic who guzzled champagne before they shocked the world by playing "Rape Me" unexpectedly during their performance.

Fiona Apple won a best new artist award in 1997 and promptly bit the hand that fed her. The then-20 year old called the entire industry "bullsh*t."
