The Matt Who Hated the Man Who Sold the World

There is one purpose for this post, and that’s to get under Matt’s skin.

Some of you may remember that in the early 90’s, Nirvana did an edition of MTV Unplugged. It was pretty good. Pretty, pretty, pretty good. Many of the songs from the set became singles and got lots of radio airplay.

One of those was their cover of The Man Who Sold the World, originally released by David Bowie. Well, this sent Matt into a rage the likes of which I’d never seen. Whenever it came on the radio, he would tell anyone within earshot, “I didn’t like this song when it first came out, and I don’t like it now!” It was as if Nirvana had performed the song just to stick it to Matt, or at least that’s what he thought.

This has become a running gag here at Songspeak, and if I ever hear the song when Matt’s around, I always bring up how he didn’t like the song when it first came out, and he doesn’t like it now.

So, just for Matt, here you go:

And just for good measure:
