"I'll just sit and grin, the money will roll right in" is probably what Faith West thought when she announced she would sell never-before-seen images of Nirvana as NFTs. But furious fans have criticized the move, suggesting that it's an insult to Kurt Cobain's memory. 

Fans of the world's biggest grunge band took to Twitter to air their frustrations over the latest NFT moneymaking scheme. Kurt Cobain was famously and outwardly anti-capitalism and anti-establishment, with many of Nirvana's songs centered around themes of abjection, social alienation and not conforming to society's standards. So it’s no wonder West has received backlash for wanting to make money from these previously unseen pictures.
