    If the guy could sing at all it would have been much better. Cool tho, i think Kurt would think that was cool if he wasn`d dead as hell.

    I agree with with xp that the it would have been more enjoyable if the guy could sing. I couldn`t tell if this was a serious performance or if they were purposely trying to be bizarre.

    I like how the guy pronounces the word Ukulele wrong. It`s an Hawaiian instrument and the vowels are pronounced different.

    The performance was quite original...

    That was brilliant. It`s obviously clear that they did it is tongue in cheek - there`s no reason Cobain would be turning in his grave. Like someone else said, he`d think it was cool as hell if he were alive.

    It`s people like Avril Levine and Jessica Simpson who disgrace great works of music by thinking their steaming pile of #$%@ remakes merit critical praise and serious consideration.

    "I like how the guy pronounces the word Ukulele wrong"

    I think that`s how all people in Britain say it, I would say it like he did...

    That was... interesting... I like how all the audience is trying to prove they are cool by jumping up and down and singing along, or tapping their tables, then they realise how stupid they look and stop and laugh like it was a joke.

    Haha that was good! They obviously weren`t meant to be serious, or, for that matter, be imitating Nirvana or Kurt. They played that song `coz its something most people will recognize, and as a result of that they can then appreciate the humour in it being played on a yukulele by middle-aged men in tuxedos!!

    I remember when Nirvana played Top of the Pops here in Britain. It was back when all the acts mimed instruments and just sang along to a soundtrack, and Cobain comes on slowly waving his hands against his guitar like an idiot, just to show that it was a soundtrack, and when he sang it was an octave lower than it should have been. Priceless.

    1) Kurt Cobain loved the fact that Weird Al made a parody of this song, therefore I feel pretty safe saying he would`ve found this amusing.
    2) The Hawaiian pronunciation would be "oo-keh-lay-lay" not "you-kuh-lail-ee." But who cares. I don`t say Croissant the way the French do.
    3) That guy on the far left with all the hair looked like Johnny Winter! HA.
    4) Jools Holland is teh cool. Very odd, very talented man.
    5) I have to go take a dump now.

    Uhm, can we say amazing?
    Most of you seem to disagree, and I have no idea why.
    I wish I could play a ukelele like that.
    And the guy didnt sing THAT horribly.
    It wasnt off key, that I noticed.
    Just a little lower & more .. gruff? .. than most people are used to.

    how did no one notice that he said "a mulatto, an albino, a misquito, an albino" instead of the right phrase, "a mulatto, an albino, a misquito, my libido" how annoying. other than that it was great.

    That was weird in about 300 different ways. It`s a cool idea but the singer drove me nuts. It was cool in the beginning, but the singer? What language did he normally speak?

    "Kurt would be rolling in his grave"
    and "this is why Kurt killed himself"

    sorry if I missed anything or repeating anything someone else said cause I`m way to tired to read throught the comments, but from what few I DID read you should have more respect. they wern`t doing this just to "be cool" or anything I thought it was awesome that they wanted to memorialize *if that`s a word* the awesome band of Nirvana. Kurt whould think it pretty cool that His very own music was known throughout the whole place while a very classy band played part in his music. As would you if your stupid little lyrics you decided to write down, was later redone over and over again even after you pass and made a legend. I give them thumbs up.

    *gasp* That`s not a ukulele! Oh, for shame, guitar player. For shame.

    I liked how the one guy with the long hair on the end was REALLY into it and, like, headbanging or something. That was the funniest part.

    More info on the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain here http://www.ukuleleorchestra.com/main/hom...

    The Guitar which most of you are referring to is not a guitar its a Baritone Ukulele.

    English speakers often call the instrument the "uke" (yook) or "ukulele" (yoo-koo ley-lee), whereas given the instrument`s Hawaiian origin, it might be more accurate to say the "uku" (oo koo), or "ukulele" (oo koo lay lay). In Hawaiian apparently, all syllables end with a vowel and `e` is always pronounced as a long `a`. The conventions of transliteration from Hawaiian probably allow both spellings: ukulele and ukelele. The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain use the former spelling but they don`t speak Hawaiian. (Extract from the UOBG website)

    It is all tongue and cheek, their repertoire ranges from George Formby covers to the Sex Pistols!!!

    Encouraged me to pick up a uke

    I love how at 1-30 the guy on the left stats headbanging.. but the arseholes got the notation wrong..

    1&2 2&3&4&5& x2 should be correct

    also the bride from chorous to verse has a bend in for atmosphere where they pause (guitar it is a bend on the G)

    AND WHERE THE HELLS THE SOLO-

    kurt cobain will be spitting in his grave that another of his song has been butchered.. well actually TBH he probably wouldn`t give a drat.
