    he's playing like that because they made him do that song when he wanted to do a different one.

    lol....good video

    some people go crazy these days about singers lip-syncing but EVERYBODY on tv did it back in the good old days (60s). half the time their instruments weren't even plugged in.

    I thought they wanted him to lip sync?

    Edit: A notable alternate performance of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" occurred on BBC's Top of the Pops in 1991, during which the band refused to mime to the pre-recorded backing track and Cobain sang in a deliberately low voice and altered numerous lyrics in the song (for example, "Load up on guns, bring your friends" became "Load up on drugs, kill your friends").

    that may have been part of it too. i've heard he hated lip syncing his music. he said it made him feel like a trained monkey.

    Man what the fuck happened? Now we've got a bunch of no-talent cunts like miley rae cyrus and rihanna. Even the men are cunts. Fuck the new century, it's shit.

    there are very few Nirvana songs I can stand listening to...never bought any of their albums, always preferred AIC, STP, Soundgarden and early Pearl Jam from the grunge era anyway. better than most of today's chart toppers for sure but that's not saying much.

    I'm not sure what's funnier, kurts singing or daves drumming.

    By the way, Little Roy did the best cover of a Nirvana song ever. (Warning: it only works if you're a fan of ska, and a little ganja before listening is highly recommended. Hey, it is Friday night !):toke:

    They're not trying to pass it off as a live performance when they film a song or two on a tv show with people dancing around. They didn't drop $100 to see that.
