When MTV gave Kurt Cobain his Moonman for Nirvana's "Best Alternative Video" win at the 1992 Video Music Awards, they made a little bit of a mistake. The win was, of course, for the genre-defining "Smells Like Teen Spirit," but someone at the factory hadn't been listening to the radio in the last 18 months. Cobain's statue, which sat next to his bathroom toilet and was later sold at auction, reads: "Smells Like Team Spirit."

The statue is just one of the many goodies on display at Seattle's Experience Music Project's exhibit, Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses, which opens to the public on Saturday, and runs through April 2013. Check out our slideshow for an early look inside.
