Spin posts free Nirvana tribute album for download

As September approaches, so does the inevitable march to recognize the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind. Spin is jumping the gun by a month, devoting its August issue to the landmark album and offering up a tribute album called Newermind.

The Vaselines and Meat Puppets, two of Cobain’s personal favorite bands that got the Nirvana bump after their songs were featured on MTV Unplugged, contributed covers of “Lithium” and “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” respectively. Titus Andronicus, Surfer Blood, JEFF the Brotherhood, and Amanda Palmer are also featured.
