During his Ridiculously Self-Indulgent Ill-Advised Vanity Tour stop in San Diego (which of course, in German, means a “whale’s vagina”) the career LOL-maker tackled Dave Grohl & co’s 1995 fan favourite and did a pretty damn decent job of it if we do say so ourselves.
“We’ve never played this one before, so cut us a little slack,” Yankovic told the crowd before launching into the rockin’ rendish.
There were no satirical lyrical alterations, no polka interludes or Mighty Boosh crimps, just a surprisingly faithful, head-banging, slick performance.
