Russian Subway Busker’s Kurt Cobain Impression Eerily Accurate

Has Kurt Cobain been reincarnated in the body of a Russian subway musician? With his dark hair and brown eyes, Nikolay Petrovskiy looks little like the late Nirvana frontman, but he sings selections from the Nirvana songbook with a voice so eerily reminiscent of Kurt’s that it sounds as if he’s summoning Cobain’s spirit. Close your eyes and listen closely!

His version of ‘Pennyroyal Tea’ above is dead on, but also watch his takes on ‘About a Girl’ and a plugged-in ‘Dive.’ Apparently, the Russian media have caught on: Check out an interview (in Russian) featuring ‘Dumb’ and other tunes here. A performance of ‘The Man Who Sold the World’ on a Russian TV show is available here.
