Cover vs. Original

Smells Like Teen Spirit


"Smells Like Teen Spirit" is a great song by Nirvana. It was covered by Tori Amos a year later with in my opinion great success.

You know I understood everything, why The Who did a better job than Limp Bizkit, why Britney shouldnt cover a song like I Love Rockn Roll but I dont get why a smells like teen spirit version which sounds boring and destroys the whole teen spirit should be better than Nirvanas. Are you scared that you are too mainstream or whats your problem? Kurt rocks!

I don't like Tori Amos and I don't like Nirvana, they suck balls, But I vote for Tori Amos coss I really detest Kurt Cobain and his silly cardigan.

Is this a joke??? Seriously...Tori Amos's cover better than the original? This is rigged. I respect that Tori gave another perspective on this song, but there is no way in hell that its better than the original.

I have to agree with the majority here. There is no way that Tori Amos did a better job than Nirvana. It is completly ridiculous. Kurt Cobain as a vocalist was completly amazing, and the band behind him was one of the most talented ever. There is no need to write more.

Congratulations on linking this from a Tori fansite and stacking the votes. You Tori fans are fine by liking the cover. However, you must realize she did butcher it and most people whom the original truely spoke to, don't find the same feeling in this. It's not that great of a cover. There is a reason everyone has heard of Kurt and nearly no one has heard of Tori.
