I think grunge tribute bands are nothing new, even back in 2000. I was living in Penzance, Cornwall at the time, and there was a pub band there called NOvarna. No prizes for guessing who they were paying tribute to.
They played mostly Nirvana songs, but they did some Red Hot Chilli Peppers songs as well. Problem was they wean't too good. LOL
