Miley Cyrus covers 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'

Miley Cyrus isn't done digging through the crates quite yet. Following her duet with Bret Michaels for her “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” cover, the former "Hannah Montana" star has tackled Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

Cyrus, 18, performed the track during a concert in Ecuador last Friday. “I have a lot of fans come up and tell me that I inspire them and make them want to follow their dreams, and so for this tour I want to be able to do the music that inspired me and made me want to be here on this stage tonight,” she told the hyped audience.

“It’s hard being on the road because you miss your family back home,” she continued, “and this song is something I always sing with my little brother…so this song is also for him.”

And with that, the opening chords to the iconic track began and Cyrus launched into her rendition. Check the performance in the video below if you dare.

    Wow. Just when I thought I could dislike Miely, now my dislike has turned to flat-out disgust. Some songs are not meant to be redone/rewritten/remade – there are many examples of this rule throughout music history. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is a flat-out classic tune from a great album marking the introduction of good ol' Seattle grunge. I haven't listened to Miley's cover, and I really don't care to. Just shows what levels some folks will sink to, in order to better their so-called careers. Good luck with all that.

    I'd be willing to bet if Kurt were living he'd be flattered she's even interested in covering his old rocking-chair classic. So many people out there are quick to dog on Miley because they're jealous of her, simple as that. What had the Beatles done at age 18? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. They were in their 20's before they made the cover of teenbeat and onto little girls' lunch boxes, which gave them the foundation to later go on and become all artsy, independent and "non-commercial". Cut the girl a little slack – what were YOU doing at 18?

    Kurt Cobain was just as talentless as Miley is. The only reason Nirvana go air time was by being in the right place at the right time. Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, and Stone Temple Pilots were all ten times the band that Nirvana was. The best thing to happen because of Nirvana was Dave Grohl being able to get enough money and recognition to form the Foo Fighters. Now THEY have talent.

I am not a Miley Cyrus fan at all (I clicked on the link because I really like the song "Smells like Teen Spirit" and was curioius). I don't know any of her songs, but as a vocalist, I can tell you thatll the "Kurt is turning over in his grave comments" are not based on the musicality of Miley's cover, but rather on emotion and personal preference....Though the thought of Miley Cyrus doing a cover of this song might give some the heeby-geebies, it really wan't that bad.

    And this is news WHY?? Most bands or artists do covers of other artists songs, so I hardly find this to be reportable news. If you are gonna go report on her doing a cover of this song, then you might as well do stories on every other artist/band when they do a cover of another artists song

    This upsets me beyond measure. I grew up with Nirvana when Kurt Cobain was still alive and... well, perhaps not "well" but alive and kickin'. Nirvana were not the musical gods that the media seems to want to mark them as but they were important, intelligent and unique. -This- is none of those things.

    This was not bad at all. She did a good job. Even in the original the hardest part about the song was the music, not the singing. Purists need to relax and stop hating all the time.
    And to those who say kids today dont know who Nirvana is.... that's like saying kids in the 90's never had a phase where they were interested in 70's music.Plus with games like Guitar Hero, you never know what the kids are enjoying music wise.... so people stop hating for the sake of hating

      A few observations....

      1. Nobody was forced to watch the clip.
      2. I didn't hear anybody in the audience booing her.
      3. Give the gal some credit. She's covering a tough song, and is openly paying homage to the music "that inspired her". So many modern day rockers don't respect the bands and music that helped them get where they are, and refrain from even attempting cover songs.
      4. Do I think another band or singer could have done a better job? Sure. SFW... Miley could outsing me any day, and likely many others here.

      And I'm not even a Miley fan...

      Lighten up everybody.... Cheers. Now, let's find someone to write a good rocker about ... the Navy SEALS 😉

    You know I honestly think if she really tried she could actually do it justice. This wasn't terrible but not something that stuck with me. I can honestly say she does have an ability. I do believe she could do this song right if she really tried and not do it off the cuff as it seems she did. She did seem to want to sing it but with practice I think she could do something legendary.

As for Miley, I'm not her biggest fan, but she has done some decent work. If you're into the whole semi-pop, psuedo-rock, glam-shock genre of music. And I'm not. I'm just sayin'.

    The band was great, the music was very good. I'm impressed.

    Sure, she's young and it's sacrilege but everyone tries something they're not ready for. Her voice was a bit off but what pains me most is, by her delivery, she has never really *listened* to the song.

    She delivered the lyrics like they were read off of a teleprompter. Those words have meaning and the song is a commentary but for her, it's just a song that she enjoys but never studied. (Ya gotta *listen* to the song, not just hear it.)

    Had she prepared more and been more passionate, she could have wowed us. Too bad. The band? They were great!

She should have left the song alone and avoided the controversy as Kurt has such a rabid following to this day. BUT, as they say, any publicity is good publicity!!!

    This is one of the hardest songs to cover just because the "sound" of the original cannot be reproduced. It's an easy song to play but it's tough to hit that dynamic like the original had.

      I'm not sure if Kurt and Tori were friends, but he and the rest of Nirvana HATED Tori's cover. It was brought up a lot and always made fun of it (Cobain called it the great "breakfast cereal version...). Kudos to Tori though for having good ears, as she covered it before it was released as a single. Good foresight.
      At least Miley's version was true to the original. It's about as good as a teenaged girl can do it. I don't hate it an have to give her credit for the attempt. This is coming from a person who wish the entire Cyrus family would find a remote island and disappear

    Nothing is sacred, who really cares about cover versions of this or any other song? The only reason we don't see other artists and bands kill songs is because people (including me and you, yes you) wouldn't watch. I only got through a minute but that's because 1. this song is so dated at this point I wouldn't listen to it if Kurt comes back from the dead to do a Nirvana reunion concert, and 2. the song does nothing for her voice.

      Kurt was in horrific personal pain, mentally ill. You just showed everyone what kind of compassion you have cheering the death of some who was no longer able to deal with what his brain was doing to him. Pray that neither you nor anyone you care about gets a mental illness. If you do, you too will be spit at and laughed at. I did not care for Nirvana though I could understand what kids saw in it. I do not have to like someone to feel compassion for them. Laughing at suicides is, in my opinion, about as low as it is possible to sink. I don't care for Courtney either but I do not wish her to be hurting so bad death is the only cure.

    I am appalled at this news! As a former punk rock teen, I find it funny that this teeny bopper is attempting to recreate an iconic alternative rock song. Poser!

      Did Courtney Hole actually give her the rights to cover that song?? To all suicidal musicians – make sure your crackhead, worthless wife doesn't get the rights to any of your music in the even that you off yourself!

    Is it just me or does she look like she's having a seizure and sounds like she smokes a pack and a half a day. I'm sure somewhere up there Kurt's trying to kill himself again after hearing this abomination.

    Why do these people insist on wearing platform shoes with long spiky heels and then try to prance around? Do they realize how stupid they look?

      It is hard to miss feet flopping around on the end of twig legs because they are bulky and heavy. Women should get someone to video them or watch themselves in a long window to find out if they are actually capable of walking in heals. Many are not and they stagger down the street with a supercilious look on their faces and their feet taking on a life of their own.

      I didn't make through five seconds of the clip of her "singing"... she should go back to covering Mickey Mouse.

      On another note, I find it funny how she says the song inspired her to get on stage considering it came out before she was born.

      Having personally attended a Nirvana concert I can report to you that Miley nailed Kurt's "runway walk". Miley Cirus? More like Miley Stage Presence.

      I was not even into music when this song came out. She was not even born yet. Sure the music may have inspired her, but she has no idea of the cultural values that inspired it.

      And this is why Cobain offed himself. He knew this is the crap that was going to happen to his music once it went popular mainstream. At least he wasn't here to experience it first hand.
