Pop Culture – Jared Leto Performs Kurt Cobain’s “Pennyroyal Tea”

Yesterday was the 17th anniversary of legendary Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain’s death. Jared Leto, actor and lead of the band 30 Seconds to Mars, had created a video of him dressed as Cobain and performing an acoustic cover of “Pennyroyal Tea.” Though there has been some controversy around Leto’s impersonation, if you compare it to acoustic version Kurt performed on Nirvana’s famous Unplugged concert on MTV, you’ll find that Leto was almost spot on. In the description under the video Leto says, “So grateful for his contribution and inspiration. Not sure I’d be doing this if it weren’t for him. He gave us all permission to create no matter what our skill set and reminded me that dreams are possible. Thanks for that.”
