McCartney to Replace Kurt Cobain

Sir Paul McCartney loves himself a benefit concert, and since his own solo act wasn’t added to the lineup for Wednesday night’s 12-12-12 benefit for Hurricane Sandy victims, he’s taken it upon himself to play the role of Kurt Cobain in the Nirvana reunion portion of the show. If it’s hard to imagine the man who wrote “We Can Work It Out” singing “Rape Me” on stage with Dave Grohl, you’re not alone. Nirvana fans took to Twitter following the announcement to express their shock and dismay at the news.
