Nevermind turns 20 tomorrow and the Nirvana covers celebrations just keep coming. Two days ago, we heard the whole album covered by a lineup of Seattle all-stars. Now, music blog Beached Miami brings together another full-album set. Nevermind Miami features all Miami artists and the clear standout is Rachel Goodrich tackling “Territorial Pissings.”
Rachel Goodrich seems to have a taste for the oldies these days – oldies in the back-in-the-day sense of the word, before the radio stations falling under that umbrella could have ever claimed the ’80s. Earlier this week, she released a cover of Johnny Cash‘s 1955 classic, “Folsom Prison Blues,” and yesterday she returned with the 1965 Shangri-Las hit, “Out In the Streets.”
