Have you ever wanted to hear what Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit would sound like if it had been written 2,000 years ago?
No, me neither, but this video delivers that, and oh my God, is it good. I now want to hear other popular songs covered in this way.
Someone recorded the music using old instruments, and then someone else translated the lyrics into the Latin equivalent (which can’t be word for word).
The result is a glorious cover that sounds both familiar and new at the same time. It’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, but like no one has ever imagined it before.
