Dylan “like mouldy old bread”

posted by Jason Kottke   Feb 02, 2004

A few British schoolchildren were recently asked to share their thoughts on a few classic rock songs from Zepplin, Hendrix, Nirvana, et. al. with predictably amusing results:

“I don’t like it. It’s worse than football. My dad watches football all the time and I have to leave the room. My dad went to watch football in Australia.” (Cream, Sunshine Of Your Love)

“This isn’t singing, it’s just screaming.” (Led Zeppelin, Immigrant Song)

“It’s making me think about doing bad things like putting snowballs down my sister’s back.” (Nirvana, Smells Like Teen Spirit)

If you like this, you may also enjoy what kids think about classic video games, fifth graders’ drawn interpretations of Radiohead, and some movie reviews by kids. (link via dg)
