Patti Smith covers Nirvana! very good

okay so I suppose this will only be aplicable to people 40 an younger. I was a huge fan of nirvana and hated most covers, but I love this cover

the entrance of the banjo after the four high notes (two played back to back) is just sublime! I used to hate Banjo music, but after this simple yet elegant performance I'm hooked

Patti Smith is quite a woman, deserves to be up there with the likes of Dylan, Joplin, and Jagger

I love how she adds the little hillbilly high pitched flair to the end of her words. "entertain US"

here's a link


I hopelessly addicted to this song. my apologies if you sat through it and didn't enjoy it.

Thanks for this. I think some of us over 40 will be glad to hear from Patti Smith again - an outrageous and wildly talented woman. And this Nirvana is a classic.

Quite an assumption, really! I'm over 40 by more than a little bit and Nirvana is one of my very favorite bands and Patti is one of my favorite artists!!!

I actually play that Nirvana album here at work. Softly.

Her cover is good, but I really prefer the rock version. Wish she had wailed it.

You can actually understand the words in her version, though.

ooh your about to hit post 1000 Fisher's Mom! congrats!

Yeah its a classic alright! I call it a masterpiece despite opinion otherwise.

Its off her new album 12, All the songs are covers, he even does a cover of Stevie Wonder's song "Pastime Paradise" taking the song back from Coolio who had that wildly successful cover called "gangsta's paradise"

you can never be too young for great music. (and as I just learned, you can't be too old either ) I love the beatles yet wasn't even born when they were together.

There hasn't been too many good bands since the 90's, all the kids where I work listen to 70's or 80's music.

You are too cool to notice that, Fincher! I just saw it and it made me wonder if this means I won't burn dinner tonight, seeing as I'm an Executive Chef now?

You're right about Nirvana in that I think they pioneered a whole new style of rock that I think people first called grunge but is a lot bigger. Staind came out of this and I love them, too.

true. i have over 12GB of hard drive space taken up from nothing but rock. I do not listen to hip hop or rap. Not my flavor of music. i will listen to country and since my friend is on the utah state dance team, he makes me listen to country. I play guitar so i tend to shoot for bands like Van Halen. I do however love classical music and Piano music.

my friend is the piano player in this.

me too, I think it would be impossible to improve on the original. but Patti's version is the first one that came some-what close to transcending the original.

That's cool about your friends band, looks like they had a pretty big crowd.
