SPIN hit up 13 artists to cover the songs on Nirvana’s Nevermind (for its 20th anniversary), in their original order. The download is called Newermind, and it’s a free download so grab it here.  (You have until July 25th!)

So what’s the line-up you ask?  Well…there’s some Butch Walker in it so that makes it MIGHTY FINE if we do say so ourselves.  Even if you weren’t a big Nirvana fan, this is worth checking out:

Meat Puppets – Smells Like Teen Spirit
Butch Walker & The Black Widows – In Bloom
Midnight Juggernauts – Come As You Are
Titus Andronicus – Breed
The Vaselines – Lithium
Amanda Palmer – Polly
Surfer Blood – Territorial Pissings
Foxy Shazam – Drain You
Jessica Lea Mayfield – Lounge Act
Charles Bradley & The Menahan Street Band – Stay Away
Telekinesis – On a Plain
Jeff The Brotherhood – Something in the Way

    Absolutely love it, especially the beautiful cover of Polly by Amanda Palmer. You should all check out her other work, she’s really amazing.

  2. Sheila says:

    Amanda Palmer’s cover of Polly is a depressing piece of amateur theatrics as all her work has been. At this point, I’m convinced that Amanda Palmer is too narcissistic to deliver a descent performance. She is clearly trying to rethink her approach, but she just doesn’t have the talent to be a singer or a musician. It’s unfortunate to watch a woman who is aging badly and still trying to get attention for something she simply cannot do. She would have been better off in some other profession.
