The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain Performs a Coherent Cover of Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’

The very talented musicians of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain (previously) performed a coherent cover of the iconic Nirvana song “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. The slightly stilted vocal performance was helped with a wonderful bit of theatrics and an ability to enunciate the lyrics. Band member Ben Rouse happily took on the role of headbanging rocker.

The Ukes take on a grunge classic. This performance of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ is taken from the Anarchy in the Ukulele DVD.
