ELVANA - Heart Shaped Box (Full Video)
We mark what would have been The King Of Rock 'N' Roll's 83rd Birthday with a weird and wonderful look at how he's still honoured today.
Despite Elvis being gone for four decades, his impersonators and devoted fans have ensured his spirit remains alive.
The same can be said for Kurt Cobain, who's life was tragically cut short due to suicide in 1994.
One band who go under the name Elvana (which of course combines Elvis and Nirvana) merge Elvis' unmistakeable vocals with some of Nirvana's biggest anthems... And for some reason it totally works!
Watch them mash-up the late singer's Only Fools Rush In with Nirvana's Heart Shaped Box above.
Well, Elvis did love a cover!
The band - who refer to themselves as "The World's Greatest Elvis Fronted Nirvana Tribute" - clearly have a sense of humour, hailing from "Disgraceland" and going under the names Elvis Cobain, Danny Cobain, Rob Novoselic and Bobby Grohl.
See their take on Lithium below:
Though we doubt there's much competition out there for Elvis fronted Nirvana tributes, the rockers do live up to their name of being the world's greatest, touring the festival circuit and embarking on a UK and Irish tour dates this year.
