Some random band from Seattle named Nirvana just broke up.
June 17, 1989 - I Won't Back Down- Mudcrutch
June 24, 1989 - Orange Crush - R.E.M
Oh yeah, they just released their first album and then the lead checked into rehab. Who knows? Maybe they'll get back together when that kid Kurt gets himself clean.

July 1, 1989 - Orange Crush - R.E.M.
July 8, 1989 - Orange Crush - R.E.M.

July 29, 1989 - About a Girl - Nirvana
August 5, 1989 - About a Girl - Nirvana
 
September 30, 1989 - Ride on Time - Loleatta Holloway
