I mean I don't think Nirvana is sacred or anthing, but... you fuckig kidding me? This sounds like a Brass Eye joke.
"...with Sir Paul McCartney taking the place of the late Kurt Cobain."
Having said that, considering Macca's ragged vocals at the Jubilee/Olympics, he might be planning a new career as a stripped-throat proto-grunge grandfather.
Stay tuned kids...
but is this real?
a joke haha i suppose if they did perform some nirvana tunes it would be weird/possibly okish haha but its hardly a nirvana reunion is it?
pretty sure he's misheard "that's nirvana, you cunt" as "that’s nirvana. you’re kurt"
re: http://metro.co.uk/2012/12/12/paul-mccartney-to-replace-kurt-cobain-at-nirvana-reunion-gig-3312907/ link that everyone on my facebook is posting :-/
getting an invite to stand in for George Harrison at a Beatles reunion. That's the real tragedy.
</nerd> Pat Smear and George Harrison crossed paths as they both played guitar for Belinda Carlisle (think on her second album), there's yer BeatleVana link up there :p
This is AMAZING. It's the kind of stunt I'd pull if someone was stupid enough to let me play God for the day.
Can't wait for the footage :''D
with Cliff Richard on vocals
like it'll just be hey jude with the rest of nirvana
or they'll cover other songs
best case scenario, they do nirvana songs but do slow meandering versions of the ones that don't mention whores and cancer and rape. not sure how many of those there are.
i.e. Paul M. is playing with those two guys from Nirvana for a charity benefit, that's it. It'll be nice and safe and boring and then we'll all go to bed.
The Man Who Sold The Walrus
All You Need Is Courtney Love
Here Comes The Been A Son
Come Together/As You Are
Drain You Got To Hide Your Love Away
VERSE FROG CHORUS VERSE
I think that's me done.
It's a fucking travesty.
Verse Frog Chorus Verse is brilliant.
WHAT THE FUCKETY FUCK? WHAT'S NEXT? REFORMING THE SEX PISTOLS WITH DONNY OSMOND???
turns out they just played some nice non-Nirvana related songs and wigged out. That's how ya do it.
Conclusion: Pish Jam Band Jams Out. It is sub-par pub rocking.
I'm pretty disappointed. Was that all they played? No Rape Me? No Mull of Kintyre? :'(
Such a wasted opportunity for good lulz.
and Paul McCartney is still playing the ugliest, uncoolest guitars in the world. Strap on a Firebird, loosen the strap down to your knees and just for once in your life try and be cool you bellend - don't play what looks like the top of a little perfume box owned by Charles II.
Sounds like a crap "Helter Skelter". They should have played that and/or some other Beatles stuff.
= whatever the fuck this is.
It isn't/wasn't a Nirvana reunion.
The look on Pat Smear's face between 3.41 and 3.51 is priceless... 'I'm back in Nirvana! Except Paul McCartney's the singer now! LIFE IS SO GOOD.'
Not too shabby a line-up:
Dave Pirner, Greg Dulli, Thurston Moore, Don Fleming, Mike Mills & Dave Grohl (pre-Foo Fighters). Shame they never wrote any original material really.
Don't know why all the bedwetters on here have such an issue, s'pose it just goes how much the "alternative" scene hates to see success,especially in this country- it was the same with James Arthur and Dappy.
with dappy as frontman would be special
