On November 29, Christie's in London will auction off a smashed guitar used by Kurt Cobain in Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" music video. The 1960s Japanese Zen-on bass guitar was purchased from a pawn shop for the filming of the video and was later smashed into pieces during the shoot. With the remaining bits expected to fetch as much as $40,000, this is one of the coolest pieces of Nirvana memorabilia from their epic run in the early 1990s.
