The Nirtles? Beatvana?

When I heard about Paul McCartney fronting a reunited Nirvana at the Concert for Sandy Relief, I had the same reaction as everybody else: “LOLWUT?” But then I started thinking about the possibilities. Which songs would they play? A few Beatles tunes, a few Nirvana tunes? Or would they mash ’em up?

“Stayyyy, stay awayyyy, stay awayyyyyyyy… from me and my monkey.”

“Come as you are, as you were, as I want you to please please me…”

“You rape me, yeah, yeah, yeah…”

Alas, it was none of the above. They played a new song called “Cut Me Some Slack.” If you think that sounds like an attempt to manage expectations, you may be right:

In other news, Mick Jagger just joined Soundgarden and Roger Daltrey is in discussions with Alice in Chains. It’s called grandpa grunge, according to the words I just made up.
