Nope. As I mentioned in my other post, Nirvana did a lot of covers in their time. Their unplugged album had quite a few on it. This was definitely one of my favourites too, hard to choose

Funny that you picked the a song from their unplugged album that had a plugged in acoustic guitar with distortion, reverb, etc. I get what you're saying though.

Yeah.

I can't stand Pennyroyal Tea. CAN. NOT. STAND that freaking song. Had to get that out, and now it's in my head. Sweet. That's what I get, I guess.

I love Charlie Daniels, but Zac Brown's version of 'Devil Went Down to Georgia' is pretty dam good.

I don't know or care to look up the chic that sang it first but

Goldfinger- 99 red balloons



Better than Men at Work

Pennywise - Down Under



And BY FAR the best version of "Fields of Athenry" Before Dropkick or Flogging Molly did it.

Nena did 99 Red Balloons, better version of her own song is the original in German 99 Luftballons, but that is me.

Don't care for that cover of Down Under, to each their own

Now for Fields of Athenry, I prefer the Dubliners, but for traditional Irish songs I lean old school sound.

The Sundays' remake of the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses". Simply elegant. Harriet Wheeler's voice is ethereal in this.....
