Random Cover of the Week – The Polyphonic Spree Does Nirvana

Let’s get something out of the way before we start: I don’t like The Polyphonic Spree. Their music isn’t all that bad, but their whole cult-like act is just creepy. I think it’s the robes. Though they were still creepy in their Fragile Army stage too, so maybe it’s more than that.

Anyway, I only bring that up to let y’all know I’m posting this video in spite of it being Polyphonic Spree, not because of it. On the surface a cover of Nirvana’s “Lithium” by the robed freaks should be just gawdawful. But for some reason it’s not. I’d even go so far as to say it’s good. Maybe even really good. Though I am under the influence of cold medicine, so that could have something to do with it…
