Cut Me Some Slack (live on Satur­day Night Live)

★★★ If some­one had told us 12 months ago that Nir­vana would re­unite, with Paul McCart­ney parachuted in to re­place Kurt Cobain, we’d have as­sumed they were tak­ing the Pen­ny­royal Tea. But then, we prob­a­bly didn’t think a Korean-lan­guage pop video would top the charts, or that Clint East­wood would lose an ar­gu­ment with a chair. Shit hap­pens. We roll with the punches. This one-off col­lab­o­raiton was writ­ten by McCart­ney with the sur­viv­ing mem­bers of Nir­vana. Would Kurt have ap­proved? Prob­a­bly not. But then, Kurt prob­a­bly for­feited his right to an opin­ion on th­ese mat­ters when blew his own brains out in 1994.
