Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays From Nirvana and RuPaul

Drag queen singer and TV show host RuPaul and grunge superstars Nirvana didn’t have a whole lot in common in the early ’90s, minus the fact that both were known to wear dresses on multiple occasions. However, all are forever united in the spirit of holiday cheer, and this was common ground enough for Kurt, Kris, Dave and Ru to bond in this clip from RuPaul’s 1993 Christmas special, in which the band is cajoled into singing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” for their host in some basement or backstage area. (Kurt changes the last line from “And a happy new year” to “Happy new cheer” for reasons indeterminate.)
It’s an oddly affecting clip, perhaps because the joy seems so sincere, at least by Nirvana standards. “Merry Christmas everybody!” exclaims Dave Grohl. “And you too, RuPaul!” agrees Kurt Cobain. “We love RuPaul!” Well, we here at Popdust love ALL you guys. And everyone else too, probably.
