Watch Wu-Tang Clan Cover Nirvana At Glastonbury

Wu-Tang Clan perform an exuberant version of Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit at Glastonbury.

Glastonbury was full of surprises this year. As if Miley Cyrus covering Nine Inch Nails wasn’t enough, Wu-Tang Clan celebrated Nirvanas Smells Like Teen Spirit. Headlining the West Holts Stage, the iconic rap group brought their energy to thousands of fans as they paid homage to Nirvana’s biggest single.

You can watch them pay homage to Kurt Cobain and Co. in this awesome performance below:

Awesome. If you want to get a crowd to dance and be overcome with nostalgia at the same time, play a classic Nirvana hit. 

Speaking to Kerrang! about his rock’n’roll education, Dave Grohl discussed his introduction to punk rock, saying, The first show I ever saw, and the one that made me want to play in a band, was at a punk rock club in Chicago in 1983. I went to this club with my cousin, Tracy, who we were visiting from Washington DC. Tracy was a few years older than me. One year we went to Chicago, opened up the front door of the house, and Tracy comes down the steps and she’s a punk. I’d only seen punks on television! She had her head shaved and was wearing bondage pants and a dog chain necklace. 

That night, she was going to see a band at a club called The Cubby Bear,” he continued. It was this band Naked Raygun, and opening up for them that night was a band called Rights Of The Accused. I’d never seen a live band. I was in this small room with maybe 60 or 70 people, and I think I was probably 13, surrounded by mohawks and leather jackets and people spitting and stage-diving. And Naked Raygun, a band that was incredibly powerful but so simplistic and loud and noisy, yet at the same time clever and arty, just blew my mind.”
