Screaming Females Cover Nirvana

In what can only be described as both an obvious and perfect pairing, back on New Year's Eve at Beat Kitchen in Chicago, IL, Screaming Females covered Nirvana. Sure, they did "Smells Like Teen Spirit," which is the most obvious Nirvana song to cover. But, it's a phenomenally great song, especially when it's done as perfectly as Screaming Females do it. It might be the most faithful Nirvana cover I've ever heard. And then, just when you think you've reached the pinnacle, they throw in a version of "Breed" that's beyond perfection. These two songs have me dreaming of a Screaming Females tour where they play nothing but early 90's alternative hits.

You can watch Screaming Females cover "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Breed" below. For more on Screaming Females, be sure to check out their website.
