    Not that I'm aware of!

    Now it was during Nirvana's appearance on SNL that Weird Al got permission from them to parody Smells Like Teen Spirit.You see one of the cast members,Victoria Jackson,was a friend of Al's and when he found out that Nirvana was going to be on the show,Al had Victoria get Kurt on the phone to get his permission,in fact one of the group members asked if the parody lyrics were going to be about food and Al said that it was going to be about the fact that no one could understand Nirvana's lyrics!

    Nirvana actually loved the parody because as far as they were concerned,the fact that they were parodied by Weird Al meant that they had arrived,they looked at as a badge of honor!
