Last month I received an email from a listener asking if I would do a show to mark the 15 anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death. Although the actual anniversary has since passed by, I thought it was a great idea and especially wanted to do this because of Nirvana’s influence on me during my earlier years.
I looked around for some quality sounding live shows without much luck but not surprisingly there are a great many bands that cover Nirvana songs. I thought it would be fitting to put together a compilation of those covers recognizing the lasting impact that Kurt Cobain and Nirvana has had on rock music. Some of these are from well-knowns like Gov’t Mule and Disco Biscuits, but also included are several less established bands but equally inspired covers.
Support the artists by buying their music!
