4. Casey Abrams, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana (1991)

Casey has crazy hippie parents, which is awesome. He realizes what a big song he has chosen, but his version is ... hmmm. The verse is ... smoother than Cobain, but then the chorus is ... rougher. It's ... hard to explain. I pretty much liked it, but the kinds of people who vote for this show aren't going to. It's not that Casey's in trouble, but it's not really the target demo for voters. Tyler loves his "goop," J.Lo says he should watch the screamy/screetchy part and Randy talks about himself some more.
