Both of the songs Nirvana mastered. I love the Meat Puppets, but Nirvana nailed it

Well, I'm a Nirvana fan, so of course I'll say Nirvana's version was better. I really like the Meat Puppets, though, and the only reason I have, is that Kurt Cobain is a much better singer. Meat Puppets can't sing.

When I heard the original version of Lake Of Fire sometime around 2010 on Last.fm I couldn´t believe my ears. I mean it sounds like no one gives a flying fuck about how it sounds and I that this attitude towards a song actually was quite cool! :)

Nirvana took this song (I can´t believe I´m writing this right now, because I´m probably the most die hard Nirvana fanboy in the world) and turned it into (sry again) an ordinary Folk/country song, but not only that: They also turned it in something you could actually sell. That nearly everyone I know believed Lake Of Fire was a Nirvana song shows how successful they were in doing that.

But that was by no means their original intention: Nirvana, especially Kurt, just wanted people to care a bit about the rest of Alternative music and by covering some of his favorite songs he hoped that other people would start digging the originals...
