Kurt CobainLate Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain once submitted a song for use in a The Ren and Stimpy Show cartoon.

Voice actor Billy West, who played dimwitted feline Stimpson J. Cat on the cult show, has revealed a young Cobain strolled into the offices of Spumco, the company behind the show, and offered up a track.

Unfortunately, show bosses were less than impressed and the future icon's work was dismissed.

In a podcast for Nerdist.com, West says, "One day, this scraggly kid came in and said he wanted to write a song for Ren & Stimpy... and it was Kurt Cobain.

"They (TV chiefs) said, 'Yeah, that's great', and they threw it in the wastebasket."
