Good one.

That one also threw my son for a loop. Generation gap is gone.

Stevie Wonder:



Not one where the cover was notably better. I like Stevie's soul.

Here's one though. The original:



OK.... BUT:



Killer.

That was the craziest ending but it worked somehow. I mean hot cylon chicks and a Dylan tune that was written over and over again for an eternity. I thought that it was inspired off a quote by Dylan where he said he doesn't write the songs because they exist already and he just grabs them. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Here: "the songs are there. They exist all by themselves just waiting for someone to write them down"

I liked the AAF version but everything else they did was weak in my opinion.

This though is a good cover in my opinion

Anyone who covers Nirvana just can't do it for me..
And there are a lot more covers of Nirvana than most people might know about.




My First Band. I was 3 and a half. My little bro was almost 2.. My older brother was 8. He introduced us to Nirvana then..
Wow.


Nirvana Live Reading.

I was in my late 20's when Nirvana came out. Not bad. Can I show you another cover from that era though. It's a good one:



It may be sacrilege to say GNR did it better than Aerosmith. If so I'm being sacrilegious.

I was actually at that gig.

It was before the reading festival became a warzone.

Hurt by, not Johny Cash...





Actually a nine inch nails song..


You'd be surprised how many people I argued with over the years since this same came out. Many claim Trent Reznor stole this from Cash. lol
