I'm throwing you a bone from the 90's this week. Well - not exactly! Delivered by the fore-mother of cool Patti Smith - and written by the late Kurt Cobain as you all would know. Both artist's having made a solid impact on audiences for generations with their words and music. Whilst Patti's prolific career and popularity has reached cult like status, She's managed to stay true to her punk roots, never straying anywhere close to the commercial realm - the realm Cobain despised.
Patti's rendition of the grunge anti-anthem is pure brilliance, with it's stripped back country arrangement it really give's you chance to enjoy the poetry of the lyrics.
Seriously though, if you didn't know any better you'd think it was Patti's to start with...
They may not have swapped notes on this one, but I'm sure Cobain approves.
