With this being Nirvana week…I wanted to try and do something special.
Typically, I would do a “best of” list. But that’s been done to death. Or I would do a B-sides list. But again…most of those have been released. So what would be a unique list that might get everyone salivating? Obviously unreleased material is always at the top of everyone’s list. Now I could do a list of original songs that have never been released. Some refined…some just fragments of songs. But it seems almost typical. So…how about a list showing where Nirvana came from…a list of what they listened to and made them what they were. That’s right. Covers. Everyone loves covers. And here’s a sampling of some of Nirvana’s best…worst…and just weird.
