so, 20 years have past since nevermind and the SPIN magazine did a sampler with some awesome and some terrible covers...


this sampler is free for download here
u need a facebook account for that. if you hate facebook as much as i do, simply download it here

as i sad, some covers are great and some are fucked up. and they actually sound almost nothing like the originals. in my opinion most of them are mostly enjoyable when high (fits with the pills on the cover).



for example, some i like:

stay away (my favourite):


in bloom:


drain you (becoms amazing at the middle!!!):


polly:



on the other hand, some are pure shit. i mean the guy from the "smells like teen spirit" cover sings like he is drunk. he reminds me of "about a boy" (had to read the book and watch the film during school) when they are talking about how stupid it is to sing with eyes closed. thats exactly how he sounds

anyways, judge for yourself

Jesus Doesn't Want Me for a Sunbeam from Nirvana's Unplugged in New York performance was originally a Vaselines song while Plateau, Oh Me and Lake of Fire were Meat Puppets songs. Other than those I've never heard of any of the other bands either.

Everyone should check out Surfer Blood and Wavves in another context. These songs kinda blow. Their other stuff is fun and summery.

EDIT: oh fuck, Wavves isn't even on here. They were listed in the magazine. That's weird.
