Kurt Cobain and Nirvana famously covered songs by The Vaselines and Meat Puppets at their MTV unplugged performance. Now those bands get to return the favor in honor of the 20th birthday of 'Nevermind'. SPIN gathered an array of modern artists (and a few older ones) to cover every song on the classic Nirvana album and have placed it on their website for free download.
Meat Puppets were tasked with covering the most beloved tune off of the album 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. Actually, they chose to do that song. Frontman Curt Kurtwood said:
"It wasn't daunting.'Teen Spirit' is just a few chords. It's easy to play -- slap some reverb on there and it's good to go. This was a cool, weird opportunity -- like playing with Nirvana on MTV Unplugged -- so we're happy to take it."
