‘Cut Me Some Slack’: McCartney, Grohl, Novoselic, and Smear

Cut Me Some SlackDelivering on a hype-filled week that included their live debut at the 12-12-12 Sandy Benefit and this weekend’s SNL performance, today Sir Paul McCartney and surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl,┬áKrist Novoselic, and Pat Smear shared their first official studio track, recorded for Grohl’s Sound City documentary. “Cut Me Some Slack” is completely charming: rocking out to near-“Helter Skelter” proportions while each player sounds inspired and — even more so — letting go to revel in the fun of an unexpected union. Paul says as much on lead vox: “Oh mama, let me be / Oh mama, watch me run / Mama, I wanna have some fun.”
