Hey Pit, I've been a long time posting!

So down to business, my local venue is putting on a 'Grunge Covers Night'; I'm good friends with the promoter/owner and she has asked if I could get some guys together (already done) and do a few covers!

The gig is on the 11th of September, and considering it's the holidays, my band have ample time to learn about 3/4 covers.

Our only issue is that none of us have ever particularly listened to much grunge music. So I thought you guys could suggest a few songs that would go down well? We are all capable musicians so ability is not a particular issue.

Thanks in advance,

That was on a list someone wrote and left on the bar saying, "SONGS I WANT TO HEAR AT GRUNGE NIGHT".

My only worry is that there will end being 5 different reditions of this song. Definately a brilliant song though!

If you play Nevermind from start to finish people will enjoy it. Maybe.

Go for some Pearl Jam, something like Even Flow or Alive would make an awesome cover.

And obviously as mentioned, Nirvana are deffinately one of the best grunge bands ever, with Smells Like Teen Spirit and Lithium being my personal favourites of theirs.

My bassist had actually mentioned 'Even Flow' He used to listen to Pearl Jam an Nirvana, but he was never a hugely diverse 'Grunger'.

Here is your exact setlist

Sprinkler-Wide Zero
Nirvana-Scoff
Mudhoney-Into the Drink
Soundgarden-Blow up the outside world(if you can handle the sheer awesomeness)

don't do any well known nirvana songs, play a song that no-one will expect or even play
"about a girl" people will know it but'll be happy to hear something different

@noverion: were you serious about no doubt?

You are playing a grunge cover show but your band doesn't want to play basically the most popular (and one of the best) grunge songs of all time? You are playing covers not originals and there to entertain the crowd not only yourselves.

seriously when people think of grunge they think Teen Spirit and if I was at said show and I DIDN'T hear Teen Spirit I'd be pissed because it's a grunge cover show and it is pretty much mandatory that I also think Cobain is God lol

You should communicate with the other bands to make sure the crowd doesn't hear half the songs 5 times
