Puddle of Mudd cover of Nirvana’s ‘About a Girl’ goes wrong

Back in January, Puddle of Mudd performed an acoustic version of Nirvana’s ‘About a Girl’ for SiriusXM radio.

While the band itself sounds fine instrumentally, Wes Scantlin’s voice is painfully strained throughout.

Instead of putting his own spin on the track, he appears to imitate Kurt Cobain’s original vocals with decidedly mixed results.

A YouTube user commented: “When you think 2020 couldn’t get any worse… You find this exists.”

Over on Twitter, one fan mocked up a video of “Nirvana covering puddle of mudd covering Nirvana.”
