    ok IMHO this is a song that should never, ever have been covered but aparently they didn't listen to their frinds b4 they did. if u've ever heard of Fly Leaf, they did a cover of "Smells Like Teen Spirit." and it is just horrible....here listen for yourself.

    It's no worse than the version in Moulin Rouge.

    Which was fucking, fucking, fucking terrible.


























    Excuse my language.

    Well now I know I will NEVER watch that movie.

    10 seconds in: Stop talking and play already.
    1/2 minute in: GET YOUR TONGUE OUT OF KURT'S ASS AND PLAY THE GODDAMN SONG.
    1 minute in: Oh GOD no. On second thoughts, DON'T.
    1 minute 10 seconds in: I want to tear your larynx out with my teeth and eat it.
    1 minute 41 seconds in: You can't sing. Stop. For the love of God.
    2 minutes 8 seconds: "hey". FUCKING HELL, WAKE UP BEFORE YOU PLAY, BINT.
    3 minutes 5 seconds in: You ARE stupid. And you most likely ARE contagious.
    3 minutes 30 seconds in: WORST. GUITAR. SOLO. EVER.
    4 minutes in: Warble, binty. Warble.
    4 minutes 20 seconds in: You DON'T look sexy. Or edgy. Or conscious, actually.
    5 minutes : Guitar feedback. The best bit of the entire thing.

    God. Crap like that makes my brain hurt. I mean, really; they didn't even have a fat comedy bassist! How pathetic is THAT?

    Fuck me.

    I thought for a moment someone had dug up Kurt, brought him to life with electricity, put him in a skirt, torn his throat out, smacked him in a face with a brick and then asked him to sing 'Smells like Teen Shit in a Festering Toilet Cubicle'.

    Fuck off you talentless shitheads.

    I love Flyleaf.
    They started as a local band here in Dallas.

    However that performance was ASS.

    I'll not be clicking that link.

    Nor will I ever watch Moulin Rouge either.

    Only people that have any business covering that song are the Melvins and any Novoselic/Grohl proects.

    I stuck with it, purely to get some aggression out. I felt I owed it to such a worthy set of targets.

    Even Nirvana hated that song toward the end..why in goodness hells name would anyone EXCEPT Wierd Al cover it?

    When I was starting in bands there were songs you just knew not to touch..and this was one of them...

    Thats always a band starter song. One of the most common songs people know how to play of the late 80's, early 90's generation of up and coming musicians. (Im refering to the age group not the era of music.)

    Sure, you play it. You don't release the thing though. Put them on that ship that's to be shot into the sun..although I'd wager it's getting pretty crowded on there.

    For real? I always got the impression it was one of those no no songs, being as it was so popular (and hated by indie-punk kids). Plus you can't really make it sound much different.

    YouTube stopped loading at the 1:20 mark.

    On a related note, I have a new respect for YouTube. It was like it paused itself and was like "Dude, really? C'mon, go check out the new Papa Roach, you don't need this shit."

    She said they wanted to offend people, they succeeded.

    Also jeans under a dress is dumb looking.

    And have they run out of names for bands? What the hell is a Flyleaf?
