Lana Del Rey’s Cover Of Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box”: Would Kurt Cobain Approve?

Given Lana Del Rey‘s obsession with fallen icons, it makes sense that she would get around to covering a Kurt Cobain classic. (Of course, she also has quite a thing for Cobain’s onetime rival, Axl Rose, too.) During a gig at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre last night, the new face of H&M belted out an even more somber (if you can believe it) rendition of Nirvana‘s 1993 alt rock staple “Heart-Shaped Box”, complete with a haunting, string-laden background.

Now, we’re not quite sure what it is about these American girls that makes them want to cover Nirvana when they travel south of the border, but as Miley Cyrus has shown, if you’re going to do it, you’d better do it right. Head below to watch, then let us know if you’ve got a new complaint to lodge against Lana, or if she rocked it.
