Quickies: Miley Cyrus Covers “Smells Like Teen Spirit” & Adele Snubbed The Royal Wedding

  • OH HELL NO. Miley Cyrus covered Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” at a concert in Ecuador and possibly had a seizure onstage before she started singing. Oh, that’s her dancing? Kurt Cobain is rolling over in his grave. No wonder Courtney Love does so many drugs. [BuzzFeed]
  • Donald Trump uses golf as an analogy to explain why he’s against gay marriage and it is absurd. [BuzzFeed]
  • Rev. Al Sharpton is the last person who suggests “romance” to me, but Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon do not agree. Sharpton renewed the couple’s wedding vows on Sunday — the couple’s third anniversary and the day after Mariah gave birth to twins. [People]

Nirvana Fans Put Out On A First Date; Lady Gaga Enthusiasts Don’t

It’s not easy to tell if someone is willing to go home with you on first date. But the online dating site Tastebuds has an offbeat idea for judging this—pay attention to what they list as their favorite music. The site surveyed users about their first date desires and then sorted through the info by the bands/artists they proclaimed to be a fan of. The verdict? That Nirvana, Metallica, Gorillaz, and Linkin Park fanatics are the most likely to put out on a first date. Meanwhile, those who love Lady Gaga, Adele, and Coldplay take longer to warm up. Ahhh, I can already hear the sound of horny online dating dudes everywhere scrolling down to ladies’ music sections to see what their chances are. [EW] Keep reading »

Tasteful Or Tacky Tribute? Jared Leto Channels Kurt Cobain


Yesterday was the 17th anniversary of Kurt Cobain‘s death/suicide and Jared Leto marked the sad occasion by releasing this bizarre video in which the actor and 30 Seconds to Mars singer performs Nirvana‘s “Pennyroyal Tea.” Um, dressed as Cobain. Apparently, he made the video awhile ago, when he was hoping to be cast in a rumored biopic about the rock star, but decided yesterday was the appropriate day to post it on the web for the masses to enjoy. (He never actually submitted it as an audition tape.) I’m not sure I agree that career-furthering, self-indulgent cosplay is the best way of paying tribute to one of rock’s most brilliant and tragic figures. What do you think?

The Nirvana Baby Is All Grown Up. And Kind Of Hot.


I, like pretty much everyone who was conscious in 1991, remember the first time I heard “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” I was conveniently located in a record store at the time, and quickly grabbed a clerk to ask what the song was. He handed me Nirvana’s Nevermind. My first thought, “Oh, there’s a baby on the cover. And there’s his penis.” I bought it and it naturally became one of my favorites to this day. But who is that little baby chasing the money in the pool? His name is Spencer Elden, and he’s all grown up now—he’s an artist in Los Angeles. In this video, he tells about how the famous cover came to be and what he’s up to now. Luckily, he’s 19, so it’s okay to have a crush on him. Maybe. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Get Your Rocks Off: Happy Birthday Bowie!

Forget Christmas. On this day in history, the glam messiah, David Bowie, was born. Although it isn’t one of those official holidays recognized by the Post Office and the bank, January 8, 1947, was, in fact, a day that literally rocked our world! While we have no confirmation that Bowie danced himself right out of the womb wearing platform pumps and guyliner, the man we’ve come to know and love has influenced many of his fellow artists. Hit songs like “Rebel Rebel,” “Heroes,” and “Fashion” have stood the test of time, just like his good looks. Damn, the dude still looks slick in a suit at 62! So, to celebrate this special day, we compiled a playlist of bands and musicians who also worship the Thin White Duke, after the jump…

When it’s sexy time, it’s also time to take off your clothes and put on some sweet tunes — like the Pixies, right? Cause you know when I put on the Surfer Rosa record it is time to get busy. Sadly, now my hip, hot record collection favorites are being marketed towards new parents so they can bring the classics of classic rock to their kids. Awwww…ugh. [Simcha, you know you think that baby with the headphones is a-dor-a-ble. -- Editor] Rockabye Baby is a company dedicated to turning the rock, metal, and pop songs you like to do it to into precious little lullabies. That’s right, the same jams that put you in the mood for baby makin’ have been remade for your little bundle of joy. Creepy! When the album you lost your virginity to is on the list (i.e. Nirvana’s Nevermind) it just seems like another sign that you’re are supposed to be squeezing out lil’ screamers by now.
