'Cut Me Some Slack' Released: Paul McCartney & Nirvana's Track Now Available

Posted: Updated:

A studio version of Paul McCartney's collaboration with the remaining members of Nirvana, "Cut Me Some Slack," has been released.

McCartney teamed up with Nirvana's Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear for the recording. McCartney first took the place of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain at last week's 12-12-12 concert, benefitting Hurricane Sandy. "Cut Me Some Slack" was debuted at the concert.

The song has been released in advance of Grohl's upcoming "Sound City" documentary, a retrospective on the great Los Angeles music studio.

The collaboration has not been universally celebrated. Courtney Love reportedly told TMZ that she was "not amused" by the news and suggested that McCartney didn't fit the bill, saying, "maybe if John [Lennon] were still alive it would be cool."

McCartney, who was the musical guest on this week's "Saturday Night Live," also performed "Cut Me Some Slack" during the episode.
