Krist Novoselic, former bass player of Nirvana, joined the Vaselines on stage at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival for a rendition of their track, "Jesus Don't Want Me for a Sunbeam." Nirvana famously covered the song during their 1994 MTV Unplugged session.
At the taping of that show, Kurt Cobain introduced it as "a rendition of an old Christian song, I think. But we do it the Vaselines way."
However, the Vaselines' song was "Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam" (from their 1988 EP Dying for It), a parody on the Christian hymn, "I'll Be a Sunbeam."
Nirvana had previously covered two other Vaselines tracks-"Molly's Lips" and "Son of a Gun"-on their 1992 comp, Incesticide.
Video of the Vaselines-Novoselic collab, featuring the latter on accordion, is currently circulating the web.
