Fans Yell ‘RAPE ME’ as Paul McCartney Becomes Kurt Cobain

Paul McCartney as Kurt CobainSo, what does Paul McCartney have in common with Kurt Cobain? Nothing right? I mean, Kurt was inadvertently cool and humble and his voice sounded like a bag of rocks dragging across the surface of an open container of margarine.

McCartney, on the other hand, was the FCC’s safest official choice to perform at the Superbowl after Nipplegate.

I say this after learning that McCartney would join Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear for at the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy relief concert, because why the fuck not, I guess? 

“I didn’t really know who they were. They are saying how good it is to be back together,” the former Beatle told The Sun“I said, ‘Whoa? You guys haven’t played together for all that time? And somebody whispered to me, ‘That’s Nirvana. You’re Kurt.’ I couldn’t believe it.”

Paul McCartney NirvanaDave and Krist haven’t performed together for 20 years, and they chose a 70-year-old man who has no idea who they are to appear on stage with them? Huge grunge shoes, not filled.

When did Krist Novoselic turn into Tom Noonan? And what was that non-Nirvana “Set Me Free” song?

  1. It was an inspired choice. I loved it. Grunge was never anything but a label created to sell records anyway. Kurt loved melody and Paul was the master of it. Kudos for them doing this. Kurt would have been thrilled.
