There is no doubt in my mind that Kurt Cobain is rolling over in his grave right now, but admittedly Miley Cyrus' signature rasp fits pretty well with her cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" that she performed recently while on tour. I know that there is all sorts of wrong happening here; Miley was not even born when this song was released, and this is the girl who wore a blonde wig and bedazzled jean jackets for half her life, thereby raking in millions from the Disney Channel. She represents pretty much everything that Nirvana most feared, so it is understandable if you just cannot allow this to be a performance that you enjoy. But, frankly, Miley is eighteen and recently freed from her Disney shackles, so it really shouldn't be a surprise that her go-to musical rebellion begins with this song. The attempt is pretty decent, even though she may need to consider taking a step back with the leather outfits. Hate it all you want, but the reality is that there is really nothing we can do except let this evolution happen. Girlfriend can't be tamed!
