All Apologies: A Japanese Tribute to Nirvana
I thought Nirvana were OK. Overrated. "They're no Melvins or Jesus Lizard" I used to proclaim. Yeah yeah yeah, anyways I may not have been the hugest Nirvana fan, but I am a big fan of "Engrish", and this CD is chock-full of it. Listen to "Wape me". Listen to it repeatedly and put it on comp tapes. Not all of this is as hilarious or even very good, but if you're a fan of the original material you might like it better than me -and it's slightly more listenable than the Japanese Metallica tribute. My only gripe is that someone really should have done "Been A Son" what with the whole Asian "female infanticide" angle and all - maybe if there's a volume 2...
This one isn't my rip, but I had to post it since I could only find it for sale online for 2,494 yen.
