I can nearly guarantee it's worth much much more to several others.

Whether they can afford to pay for that assigned value or not is another issue entirely lol.

EDIT: Weird thing to downvote but ok. Being stupid isn't a crime.

AFAIK it's not even a real album. It's just random verses that were recorded, not used, and then thrown over beats. They didn't go and make this album as a group without ever releasing it. Some producer or engineer spliced it together.

Yeah but fans go absolute bonkers for that never-released stuff. Even if it's bad (sometimes especially if it's bad). They just want to hear it all.

I used to collect Nirvana bootlegs when I was younger and yeah I wanted everything. I mean, as a community we wanted everything, and did anything we could to surface it all (some still are: www.livenirvana.com).

Although you’re also a little more desperate when the artist doesn’t exist anymore. Not sure how it is with other scenes, Nirvana is pretty much the only one I got that far into.
