Tori Amos. Remember her? She burst onto the music scene in 1992 and released her debut album Little Earthquakes and since then has released 12 more studio albums and she will release her 14th new studio album “Unrepentant Geraldine” next year.

That year in 1992 Tori covered Nirvana’s hugely iconic track Smells Like Teen Spirit which Kurt Cobain himself referred to it as “a great breakfast cereal version”.

The cover was an acoustic piano cover totally stripped down.

Nirvana fans, hard to please when it comes to people covering Nirvana have said this may be the only ‘decent’ cover someone has ever done.
