Jared Leto Singing Nirvana Songs à la Kurt Cobain

This might slightly annoy some people but actor Jared Leto has a mild case of Kurt “Cobainitis”.

Besides them both having similar features, Leto, who is the lead singer and guitarist for his own band 30 Seconds To Mars produced this video of himself singing “Pennyroyal Tea” and “Rape Me” à la Kurt Cobain of Nirvana.  Leto, who plays guitar right-handed even learned to play left-handed like Cobain for the video.

About the video, here is Leto’s statement taken from his youtube account.

I heard today (April 5) was the day Kurt passed away 17 years ago. Can’t believe it’s been that long. So grateful for his contribution and inspiration. Not sure I’d be doing this if it weren’t for him. He gave us all permission to create no matter what our skill set and reminded me that dreams are possible. Thanks for that. This made me recall a short piece of film I shot when I heard they were making a film celebrating his life. I made it to explore the character and explore creative possibilities. I never sent it to the studio or to anyone but thought I’d share it now…
