Yes. That was Nirvana covering CCR’s Bad Moon Rising.

Underwhelming is my first thought. Not sure I’ll give it a second.

It’s a great song, but I prefer Nirvana’s version of “There’s A Bathroom On The Right.”

So glad you posted that! That scene is revered in the Lindsay household. We still sing the National Geographic theme, with lyrics.

Heh! Started out as the movie lyrics, but we started adapting those to whatever is at hand.

“Look at that snowwwww-plow, it just buried some guy!”

*lolz

That’s awesome; thank heaven for mirth and whimsy.

I see your cover by Nivana and raise you a brass cover of Nivana:

I so agree with you about this song, There’s A Bad Moon on the Right!
