A Big Mistake?

I often believe as a musical artist there are some songs/bands that you avoid trying to replicate or play a cover for. The reason is simply because if somebody loves something so much the worst thing you can do is try to sell them a different version of the song/band.That being said, I would like to announce "Come As You Are: A 20th Anniversary Tribute To Nirvana's Nevermind".
Covering Nirvana usually has the effect of career suicide and if you have proof otherwise I am willing to see it. Even Amy Lee, who had some stunning covers of "Heart-Shaped Box" and "Lithium" has seemingly been erased from the planet ever since. Here is the list of bands that will be erased from the world after this Cd's release on October, 11th 2011:

1. Brent DeBoer and Courtney Taylor-Taylor (of The Dandy Warhols) “Smells Like Teen Spirit”
2. mewithoutYou  “In Bloom”
3. Civil Twilight “Come As You Are”
4. Story Of The Year “Breed”
5. Hawthorne Heights “Lithium”
6. Finger Eleven “Polly”
7. Will Dailey “Territorial P*****gs”
8. Maps and Atlases “Drain You”
9. Murder By Death “Lounge Act”
10. Pitty “Stay Away”
11. The Album Leaf “On A Plain”
12. Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s “Something In the Way”
13. Anthony Raneri (of Bayside) "About A Girl"

This Is Legit
