As much as I dislike Nirvana, I would have to say that Kurt Cobain had bloody good taste in music! Through my older sister I actually listened to MTV Unplugged album, which although dire like the rest of their music, covers 3 or 4 songs by the Meat Puppets. Intrigued and a fan of hardcore I thought it about time to introduce some meat into my diet. This is a truly beautiful album, which ranges from hardcore punk, to blues, to country to bluegrass. Even the mellower moments are hard! The Meat Puppets were never a band afraid to experiment and this album gets all the just and deserved praise it so truly earns. Spilt myself in two is probably one of the best punk songs I've heard next to Black Flag's Police Story. Other bands I would recommend in a similar vein are Husker Du, The Minutemen, and The Replacements. It's just a shame it took Nirvana for kids to discover this great band.
