Watch as Today’s Teens React to Nirvana

If you were around when Nirvana and grunge hit in late 1991, you’ll remember what a game-changer that all was.  And you probably remember where you were and what you were doing when you heard that Kurt Cobain died.

That music of the early to mid-90s will forever be part of you.  But what if you weren’t around then? What if weren’t even born?  What’s your reaction to this music that’s almost a quarter-century old now?

Well, watch this.  (And no, Nirvana did not “steal that part from Jay Z.”)

Once you’re done with that, have a listen to this version of “Dumb” by Sivu. It again proves that a great song can be interpreted in any number of ways and still be a great song. (Thanks to Pamela Chelin for this link.)
