Most of the time shovels sound like shovels. In rare moments, though, shovels can summon the spirits of rock 'n' roll greats, even mimicking the opening notes to their songs. Such a shovel did just that when it boinked out the intro to Nirvana hit "Smells Like Teen Spirit," taking the internet by storm. We'd like you to meet that shovel.Wow. Pretty amazing.
So, do you think the shovel sounds like Nirvana? Was it exploited and abused by the flailing kid who dropped it? Will the shovel seek YouTube royalties? Has City Pages hit rock bottom, not unlike a shovel hitting a frozen pond? What would Kurt Cobain say about the shovel? Is Kurt Cobain's ghost inside the shovel? Does the shovel deserve a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
H/T to Noisey for giving us so much to think about.
