    During a quarterly commercial interruption of some Alaskan reality TV festishism, the National Geographic Channel promoted their new miniseries The '90s: The Last Great Decade? — a question that they presumably intend on answering when the first episode airs July 6th. Unlike VH1's humorous, decade documenting I Love The... series, NatGeo's will be a more deliberate focus on the era's big topics. One of which will be Kurt Cobain and Nirvana's impact on music and popular culture. In the clip below, which features interviews with 90210 star Shannen Doherty, Courtney Love, and Nevermind producer Butch Vig, as well as archive footage of Cobain interviews, the singer's wife tells the cameras that her long assumed anti-fame husband was actually desperate for fame claiming bluntly, "He wanted it bad."

    "They called him the voice of a generation a lot. That freaked him out a bit, but he probably got off on it. I would."
