Paul McCartney Fronting Nirvana Reunion at 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit?

Paul McCartney will stand in for the late Kurt Cobain and front a Nirvana reunion at tonight's 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit at New York's Madison Square Garden, according to rumors sweeping the Internet. The story stems from Britain's Sun newspaper, which reports that Dave Grohl recently asked the Beatles legend to "jam with some mates," and that those additional musicians wound up being Nirvana bassist Krist Novaselic and guitarist Pat Smear, who sometimes performed with the Seattle trio. Apparently, McCartney suggested they "just make something up," paving the way for the all-star foursome to play a brand-new song at tonight's charity gig.

Funniest Guitar Faces

The guitar face -- the look axemen get when they're too caught up in the majesty of shredding to worry about how ridiculous they look -- is typically associated with metal and classic rock. Fans of these genres have long embraced guitar solos, which tend to produce the funniest guitar faces, but even in alt-rock and indie, where musicianship is less of a factor, and power chords sometimes take the place of complex noodling, musicians have a tendency to close their eyes, wrinkle their brows and make with the hilarious facial expressions.

Below is a sampling of the funniest guitar faces. We've taken the liberty of cropping out the instruments and focusing on the mugs, so that each pained grimace and euphoric O-face can be fully appreciated. Take a look, have a chuckle and then do your best to forget what you've seen -- otherwise, you may never listen to a Clash or Black Keys record quite the same way.
