Bollocks?: Miley Cyrus covering Smells Like Teen Spirit.

I want to be clear now, I have nothing against Miley Cyrus. I’m not a fan of her music but I don’t mind it either, and hey she’s richer than most 18yr olds.

I do however have something against the fuck-wit that at some meeting where big men in suits and shades were deciding which song Miley should cover put forth the suggestion “Smells like teen spirit?”

I also have something against the moron that turned, looked said fuck-wit in the eyes and replied “yea!” Those guys are what tarnish the divinity of music. They are the corporation, the big cheese, the man, and apparently they’re idiots.

Smells Like Teen Spirit Is A Classic. Its right up there with the likes of Sweet Child O’ Mine, Stairway To Heaven and American Pie. The only artists that cover them are the ones who are just starting out and lack their own material or other classic bands who have their own classic songs and are covering out of respect.

It also doesn’t help that Mileys in a whole other genre to Nirvana.

Maybe im being a music fascist but I think you’ve got to earn the right to seriously cover a classic. If Mileys still going strong in 10 years then she can fill her boots. Until then leave it to the greats.
