Kurt Cobain & Courtney Love vs. Lemonheads

Cobain

Kurt Cobain & Courtney Love:

Cobain was apparently about 15 when he recorded this snippet.

Lemonheads:

Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. Only one cover tune will live to play another day and it is your solemn responsibility to decide which one prevails. So tell me … Which Side Are You On?!!?

Also, keep in mind that if you should spontaneously self-actualize while playing a cover then you could – and probably should – nominate it for Top 10 (i.e. “Impeccable”) consideration.

    A protest vote for Cobain & Clueless. This was a total missed opportunity for a band the caliber of the Lemonheads. Their covering Mrs. Robinson should have resulted in a tremendous, creative and memorable romp of a tune. Instead they produced an uninspired bland recording. And the video. Good God whose idea was that? The footage of The Graduate was awesome. But the boat cruise was pathetic, bubble-gum video. It looked like something out of the New Kids On The Blog video catalog. Ugh, what could have been …
