SPIN Tribute to Nirvana's 'Nevermind' - free album!
A few months ago, Spin were the first to pay tribute to the 20th anniversary of Nevermind by offering for free a great covers album. To quote Spin:
We tapped some of our favorite contemporary artists to cover the influential album's 13 songs, in their original order. The download is called Newermind, and it's our gift to you.
We were happy that two of Kurt Cobain's personal faves -- the Meat Puppets and the Vaselines, both of whom Nirvana famously covered during their MTV Unplugged taping -- joined our effort. Below you'll find the complete album tracklist, with reflections from each contributing artist.
1. MEAT PUPPETS - "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
2. BUTCH WALKER & THE BLACK WIDOWS - "In Bloom"
3. MIDNIGHT JUGGERNAUTS - "Come As You Are"
4. TITUS ANDRONICUS - "Breed"
5. THE VASELINES - "Lithium"
6. AMANDA PALMER - "Polly"
7. SURFER BLOOD - "Territorial Pissings"
8. FOXY SHAZAM - "Drain You"
9. JESSICA LEA MAYFIELD - "Lounge Act"
10. CHARLES BRADLEY & THE MENAHAN STREET BAND - "Stay Away"
11. TELEKINESIS - "On a Plain"
12. JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD - "Something in the Way"
13. EMA - "Endless Nameless"
