This monster of a record can’t be ignored. First, let me just remind you that Sir Paul is 70 YEARS OLD and rocks in this song as hard as he did singing “Helter Skelter” with The Beatles! In fact, at the 2:04 point of this song it is all “Helter Skelter” and that’s definitely not a bad thing.

They debuted this song in the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert and then did an even better version of it on one of the best episodes of SNL this year. On both occasions Paul was playing a very awesome looking four string cigar box guitar. Both times it rocked, but this studio version (which I did NOT expect) is the best.

When news broke about the benefit concert performance it was labeled a Nirvana reunion. Although it’s obviously not a real Nirvana song I can totally picture Kurt Cobain singing the track written by Krist Novoselic. Seriously though, this is a REALLY GREAT SONG.

Paul McCartney and the surviving members of Nirvana defied all expectations with this tune. Clearly the result of a jam session, Cut Me Some Slack sounds a bit like Them Crooked Vultures may have sounded had Macca joined the group instead of John Paul Jones. Nirvana fans expecting Smells Like Teen Spirit were disappointed by the performance at 12-12-12. I would advise said fans to remember that these fellows have aged 20 years and grown and changed as Kurt stayed the same age. I would also remind them that Kurt's primary influence was Paul and the boys, and I imagine that should Kurt be able to witness this he would be pleased. The weak point of the track is clearly the lyrics, which seem at best to be adequate and were clearly made up in a jam format. Aside from that, it's a rockin' little record that I want my jockey to play. Loud and often.

Four musical gods got together to makes this most wonderful masterpiece. When I first watched them perform it at the 12/12/12 concert. I wept.

I was really impressed to learn that Pual had actually collaborated on a production with these guys... I mean Nirvana, Foo Fighters... Come on! The music proves them out as it is hard hitting and a wall of distortion, but I think it's just too much Paul and not enough from the grunge elements. Paul's vox is bland and goes nowhere; not typical for a McCartney melody. I really hope that they try it again cuz this song is a miss.

Paul can still rock! He can go from Kisses on the Bottom to Hard Rock. How many can do that?

When these guys played together live at the 121212 concert and reprised the performance on SNL, it was pretty much the greatest thing that had ever happened in the history of the world.

It's not often that a band like Nirvana has its remaining members play together. When someone like Paul McCartney joins them, you worry that your hopes won't be too high.

Don't worry, your hopes aren't too high.
