YouTuber creates fake Nirvana song using artificial intelligence


Funk Turkey is a pseudonym and stage name of Arkansas parody/comedy musician and producer Kirt Connor. The YouTuber recently used artificial intelligence to create a new “Metallica” song, which we recently shared here on Dread Central.

A YouTuber has used artificial intelligence to write a fake Nirvana song — you can listen to the end result, ‘Smother’, below.

YouTuber Funk Turkey is behind the creation, having used a similar methodology recently to create fake “new” songs by AC/DC, Metallica and Nickelback.

Funk Turkey’s latest A.I.-scribed ditty is in the style of Nirvana. Give “Smother” a spin and read more about the song below.

Using to scrape the Genius Lyrics Database, I made a Markov Chain write Nirvana lyrics. This is the end result- “Smother”.

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. All lyrics provided by Hal 9000 (AKA Guitars are the aforementioned Stratocaster bounced hard left and right. Flanged Stratocaster through a Fender twin is dead center in the mix. Bass is a no-name bass run through amp emulation. Percussion is Superior Drummer 2. I know Dave Grohl hates computer drums but it’s the best thing I got, soooo…. Sorry Dave. I still love you. Vocals are doubled, slightly compressed, and run though an emulated reel-to-reel and tube saturation for a bit of extra warmth and grit. Also the first use of my new pop filter that my wife bought me for early father’s day. She’s the best.
