  • Nevermind….
  • Little Roy did a whole album of Nirvana covers, called ‘Battle for Seattle’. Some songs work better than others but, on the whole, pretty good IMO.

    We saw him doing that live a couple of years at Reading… It got a bit old tbh but was quite good fun.

    Heresy I know, but I find myself preferring this Ukrainians cover to the original (hope it’s the right linky, I’m at work with no sound, it’s meant to be Venus in Furs)

    If you like reggae covers of rock numbers, check out The Dynamics (not going to do anymore silent youtube roulette, you can find ’em yourself, Whole Lotta Love’s pretty good IIRC).

    That Gourds one is one of the best covers ever.
    I got it on an Uncut mag freebie CD years ago and had no idea it was a cover, I just enjoyed it for what it was.

    Many moons later I was listening to Snoop dogg and thought something sounded familiar 😳

    I like covers sung in a different style……. 8)

    I think this is a brilliant completely different style and structure one from Nevermind as well. Virtually unrecognisable from the original, yet all the words are there in the right order (I think?)

    Wow. Not heard that before. Come As You Are is a little “similar”.

    Dub Side of the Moon is a great Reggae covers album, Speak to me/Breathe is just divine:

    Saw Easy Star at the Boileroom in Guilford last year (tiny venue), top 5 gigs easy.

    Radiodread and St Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band have their moments, but Dub Side works all the way through IMO.

    Also for Nirvana covers you can’t get much better than:

    “EVERYBODY!”

    one could argue that Nirvana didn’t “rip off” Eighties, but an earlier number from The Damned’s “Strawberries” album. I don’t see it myself but there you go

    speaking of odd covers, try this one:

    Elvis impersonator doing Come As You Are in the style of, well, Elvis…
    There’s loads more…
