Over-Bored & Self-Assured Miley Cyrus Covers Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

Believe it or not, Nirvana’s seminal breakthrough album Nevermind will turn 20 this year, which has clearly not been lost on tattooed Disney minx Miley Cyrus. The Hannah-Montana-star-gone-rock-chick performed in Ecuador over the weekend and sonically assaulted her fans with alt-rock classic “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” That’s right, Gen X, Miley covered Nirvana — a fact that, in and of itself, we think Kurt Cobain would somehow find to be utterly punk rock. Watch below! We, of course, probably don’t need to point out that Miley wasn’t even born yet when Nevermind was released.

What do you think of her take on the NIrvana classic? Did she totally rock or commit an act of grunge sacrilege?
