YouTuber Funk Turkey has made a new fake Nirvana song using A.I. programming. It’s Turkey’s latest endeavor following a flurry of other mock tracks mimicking the likes of AC/DC, Metallica and Nickelback, to name a few.

The song is called “Smother,” a three-minute concoction of Nirvana-esque tropes that attempts to mirror the legendary band’s distinctive personality. Turkey notes in the video’s description, “using lyrics.rip to scrape the Genius Lyrics Database, I made a Markov Chain write Nirvana lyrics.” Generating lines like “I could eat your heart-shaped box for food” and “You never lost control,” the lyrics reappropriate familiar keywords from some of Nirvana’s biggest hits.

Next, Turkey mixed the music and vocals using “cheap” equipment to resemble that scratchy ’90s Seattle grunge sound. “All music/vocals performed, mixed, and mastered by me, in my kitchen, on a sparkly red cheap Stratocaster, a crappy mic, and an old copy of ProTools,” explained the YouTuber. “Vocals are doubled, slightly compressed, and run through an emulated reel-to-reel and tube saturation for a bit of extra warmth and grit.”
