The 11 Best Nirvana Covers (you've never heard)

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.

The 11 Best Nirvana Covers (you've never heard and not really in order):

1. My Best Friend's Girl (The Cars)
2. Bad Moon Rising (CCR)
3. Seasons in the Sun (Terry Jacks)
4. More Than A Feeling (Boston)
5. Baba O'Reilly with Krist singing (The Who)
6. Man Who Sold The World (David Bowie)
7. The End (The Doors)
8. Where Did You Sleep Last Night? (Ledbelly)
9. Love Buzz (The Shocking Blue)
10. Here She Comes Now (The Velvet Underground)
11. Do You Love Me? (Kiss)

Buy Nirvana's new releases....Live at Reading Fest...and the 20th Anniversary of Bleach Deluxe Edition.

Couldn't get Baba O'Reilly or My Best Friend's Girl to work.

More Than a Feeling is hilarious. I just assumed they were starting Teen Spirit.

Heard everything but the CCR cover but thanks a lot for that. Them doing More Than A Feeling is still the best thing ever. And I dont know why they left off Seasons In The Sun from the boxset cds.
