Meat Puppets contribute to SPIN’s “Nevermind” Nirvana tribute album

For the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind, SPIN has curated a tribute album of unique and varying covers. Legendary rock trio Meat Puppets were invited to contribute an interpretation and chose to tackle the iconic “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
Listen to “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and the rest of the album on SPIN’s Facebok page.
 
Steve Kandell, SPIN’s editor-in-chief, tells NPR
