excellent rendition though.
thats great. almost as good as the 'nirvana vs foo fighters' discussion on kerrang tv the other day, where some kid put foo fighters were better cos they had kept going.
fuckin cobain, lazy bastard.
It's also my favourite cover version of all time
Honestly download a copy...
This is why I don't own that piece of shit.
TMWSTW is a great song. I prefer Bowie's version, though.
Cobain's version of Where Did You Sleep Last Night, now THAT'S a fucking 'choon'.
The one I heard was much faster and less brooding. Cobain's version is a lot nastier, which suits the mood I reckon.
I've never heard the leadbelly original.
singing it together?
it's very raw and i like it lots
we've had this debate theo. the conclusion was that you were so wrong you don't actually have ears.
unplugged may be the cause of innumerable shite session albums from cack bands, but it's an amazing album full of raw, honest and fragile emotion.
seriasss. don't be a fool.
Listen to 'A Prayer to God' by Shellac. :D
Theo is bang wrong.
everyone i know with a copy of 'unplugged' also has several of their other albums.
People who don't like Nirvana have that album.
in my view.
I don't like Unplugged because 6 of the 14 tracks are covers and Cobain's own songwriting is above every song he covers with the possible exception of Bowie and Leadbelly.
And of those songs that ARE Nrivana songs they pick pretty much the most obvious songs to pick given the Unplugged set up. I'd have been more interested to see a totally different take on a song like Frances Farmer, for example. It's so pedestrian and uninspriringly 'busker'.
you freaking weirdo
But yeah, you're what I consider the target audience for the Unplugged album.
If I wanted to listen to some quiet acoustic songs I'd put on Nick Drake or something.
My point was more that to me the acoustic version sort of rips the heart out of what Nirvana were all about, which was adding loads of noise to great catchy little song.
To hear them without that always feels empty to me. Whereas someone like Nick Drake is all about the acoustic guitar and getting a song out of it. I mean, look at Noel Gallagher: on his own with an acoustic he's really quite compelling, but give him a band and suddenly you're yawning your way through 6 minute wibbling solo nonsense...
