Watch Paul McCartney and Nirvana perform at the 12-12-12 ConcertBy Matt Miller | December 13th, 2012 | 1 Comment »
For the most part Wednesday night’s 12-12-12 Concert was a dull affair — the Rolling Stones only played like one song, the Who played too many songs and Kanye West wore a skirt and failed to ignite the classic rock-loving crowd.
But anyone who was able to stay awake for the six-something-hour concert got a chance to see Paul McCartney replace Kurt Cobain as the Nirvana frontman.
As weird as that combination sounds, Paul McCartney and Nirvana actually ended up being the highlight of the night.
Before jumping into the set, McCartney confessed to (a potential) 2 billion viewers that he had no idea who Nirvana was, which is only OK if your name is Paul McCartney.
With that out of the way the group jumped into the new song, “Cut Me Some Slack,” which you can watch below and tell us what you think.
