Is This Russian Street Performer the Next Kurt Cobain?

They called him the voice of a generation, but if you really wanted to, you could probably also get away with calling Kurt Cobain the voice of a Russian subway performer. This dude sounds just like him.
We hope this guy isn’t trying to make actual money performing — this song is kind of a bummer, and a great way to get somebody nice and depressed for their morning commute. Perhaps he makes his fortunes off super-depressed Nirvana fans. (There are probably a lot of those kicking around in Russia, right?)
If not, he could always play a ’90s night at a bar someplace. A sad, sad bar. Where people go to cry. To reiterate — great cover, maybe not the best song choice to earn people’s spare change in a train station. SUCH a bummer.
