This month marked the 17th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s passing. Regarding Nirvana covers, most people gravitate towards “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Come As You Are.” The rap duo RedLand threw a curveball by reinterpreting “In Bloom.” They use the chrous to fuel a narrative on the aimless who derive their behavior from the hollow images of popular culture. People tend to forget that the best cover songs are never a line by line copy of the original. This is where RedLand succeeds. I’ll definitely be on the look out for their future work.
