During a recent concert in Ecuador Miley Cyrus decided to cover the Nirvana song ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ and now Kurt Cobain is turning over in his grave. You can check out the video for yourself right her but I warn you it will make your ears hurt.
I don’t know what in the world Cyrus was thinking when she decided to cover the hit Nirvana song but the end result was disastrous and honestly so disgraceful to a classic song. First of all Miley cannot pull off grunge no matter what anyone tells her. Second I don’t even think she knew the words to the song, in the video you can barely understand what she was saying but that could be because she was literally eating the microphone.
It is pretty safe to say that rock fans all over the world are going to be pissed off about the fact that Disney starlet Cyrus thought she had the chops to pull off such a song, I know I am and I wasn’t even a diehard Nirvana fan. Miley is a pop girl and will never be anything else so she should stick to what she knows and stop ruining good music with her awful voice. Seriously when you look at the footage yourself you will totally understand what I am talking about. Girl can’t sing that well live in the first place so there is no need to try to cover a song that is so out of her element.
You might be wondering why the former Hannah Montana star would choose to sing such a song on her tour. Well in the video she explains she is all about doing music on her current tour that inspired her to want to be on stage. Here is note Miley just because it inspired you doesn’t mean you can do it justice, just a little food for thought there.
Alright friends I clearly think that Miley’s version of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ sucked but it isn’t just about me so let me know your thoughts. I know you have them too so spill it!
