Watch: Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic covers Lorde’s “Royals” (on accordion)

    You thought Lorde’s “Royals” jumped the shark when Bruce Springsteen covered it? Think again. Recently, founding Nirvana member Krist Novoselic tried his hand at Ella Yelich-O’Connor’s chart-topping single, which he performed on his go-to instrument of late: accordion. Watch the instrumental rendition, as performed in Takoma Park, Maryland, below (via Stereogum).

    All that being said, I wouldn’t mind seeing Ella return the favor and bust out a Nirvana cover during her ongoing American tour. We know she has the chops to do so.
