LA’s Best Coast have added their chillwave flare to a much-loved grunge classic while performing in Belgium. After a bit of a heads-up from the band, fans in attendance armed with camera phones filmed the rendition of Nirvana‘s About a Girl.
Frontlady Bethany Cosentino prompted fans to raise their camera phones after saying, “We’ll play a Nirvana cover now. Feel free to film it”, according to Oyster Mag. At least one fan was able to follow instructions and filmed the bootleg clip that you can check out below.
The timing of the cover matches up pretty well with the 21st anniversary of Nivana’s groundbreaking Nevermind. Now although About a Girl features on Bleach, it still looks as though that would be a major motivation behind the performance. But hey, who cares why they did it, the important thing is that despite how un-Nivrana Best Coast is, they still do a pretty good job.
Courtney Love is yet to threaten legal action, or berate the band for some reason, though it’s still only early in the day.
