in 1994, i picked up a little nirvana bootleg called "nirvana: the eternal legacy". on it, were two songs that i thought might be the best they'd ever done, "molly's lips" and "son of a gun" (they were on "incesticide" too, but i didn't have that album). seven years later, i learned, in a somewhat embarrassing manner, that they were actually by a scottish group called the vaselines. in honor of the new nirvana box set, here are some original vaselines songs and their reciprocal nirvana covers (breaking my one mp3 a week rule already).

the vaselines:
Son of a Gun
Molly's Lips


nirvana:
Son of a Gun
Molly's Lips
