McCartney & Nirvana Members – “Cut Me Some Slack” Studio Version & SNL Performance

By Tom Breihan / December 17, 2012

In one of those bizarre and unforseeable titans-clashing musical events, Paul McCartney linked up with the surviving members of Nirvana, reunited for the occasion, to play a few songs at last week’s 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy relief show. Among those songs was a hearteningly ass-whomping new one called “Cut Me Some Slack,” which will show up on the soundtrack to Dave Grohl’s forthcoming Nirvana documentary Sound City. And this weekend, the studio version of the song emerged online. Meanwhile, McCartney served as musical guest on Saturday Night Live, and he brought the Nirvana trio with him to blast the song out again. Check out the studio and SNL versions of the song below.
