Twenty years ago this week, Nirvana released Nevermind. Exactly 46,251 copies were released to record stores, which was considered optimistic at best. The hope was the record would sell between 100,000 and 200,000 units, pushing it into Sonic Youth territory. It didn't quite work out that way.
Nevermind was the record that brought the underground to the mainstream and rock hasn't been the same since.
With that in mind, let's put together a playlist of covers of Nevermind songs. I've started things off with a crazy version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" from Los Straitjackets. What else can you find?

“I mean, I don’t know if you could play with it for six hours, but it’s kind of meant so that kids can like, take LSD and play with it. You know, that’s kind of our intention, so that people buy it at like a festival, and then go back to their parents’ and take some acid and play with it all night. So it’s a song you can play while you’re sitting at your computer, you plug it in and it plays all night.”
