Nirvana live performance, miming the instruments and mugging the vocal

Back in 1991 (22 years ago yesterday), Nirvana was asked to perform on England’s Top of the Pops. Problem was, they were told they had to play off a backing track (pre-recorded instrumentals) with live vocals. As you might expect, Kurt Cobain and the band did not take things as seriously as the show would have liked. Watch for the not-so-subtle fake guitar-work, vocal mugging, and Dave Grohl’s wildly off-beat fake drumming. Love this.
