Yesterday in Sydney, Australia, human Uncanny Valley explanation Lana Del Rey took to the stage to lend her patented brand of smokey insouciance to Nirvana’s iconic, “Heart Shaped Box.” I’d say Kurt Cobain’s skeleton would be spinning in its grave right now if that thing hadn’t already been rotating longer than a janky hunk of lamb kebab in a sketchy Queens diner for years now. (See Courtney Love: everything).
All things considered, her version wasn’t all that bad, especially when stacked up against these atrocities:
Lana Del Rey looks like Kurt Fucking Cobain’s reincarnated ghost jamming with Jimi Hendrix’s and a Tupac hologram compared to this Miley Cyrus cover.
Worst Nirvana cover ever? Worst anything cover ever.
Wait, never mind (← heh, heh), this one is super cute.
God, this sounds awful live. Maybe that makes it a faithful Nirvana cover come to think of it.
Nirvana, as you may have forgotten, also not that great at Nirvana covers themselves.
Someone needs to stop telling kids to follow their dreams.
Your heart and your hair are in the right place here brother, but there’s a reason why Kurt’s voice sounded like a box of hammers half way through a set. Choose your battles.
