Sunday Funnies – Worst Nirvana Cover Ever

These kids try to play the Nirvana song “Smells Like Teen Spirit” but it just doesn’t quite fly.

Okay, it’s not fair to make fun of a live band trying to play a song so I want to point out a few positives here first. This song, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is difficult to play because the recording that we’re all used to is so full sounding. But when you try to cover it in a live band, it is really tough to make two notes on the guitar sound rich and full like the recording.

These poor kids don’t even have a bass player and the guitarist doesn’t have his guitar in tune for the two-note riff. So really, all is lost before the singer begins to sing. After the singer starts…well, I’ll let you see for yourself. I will say this though, the drummer has potential!
