Judge a Song By…: Winter Gloves “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

WOW.

Nirvana should remain untouched.  It should be a rule of thumb for any band to never cover one of their songs, especially the classic “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

Except for Winter Gloves.  Here’s what they did right:

1.  Children’s choir.

2.  A sound that can easily be a sample of Fisherspooner’s “Emerge.”

3.  A cover that doesn’t make you cringe  – not once.

There Goes The Fear has the MP3 up for grabs, but listen to it below.

    It’s ok, nothing really that blows me away, it’s all kind of Pink Floyd’ish with their child choir. No one should ever be allowed to cover this song.
