As much as I loved Nirvana as a teenager I'm really liking Little Roy's reggae/ska Nirvana covers lately.
Get the full album on iTunes or here for free if you have a torrent client....

I wouldn't say better than the original since I am a big DM fan, but definitely on par with it - with a new spin. Failure was an underappreciated band.
