I think it's awesome how he touched so many peoples' lives that they want to sing their own versions of his songs.

It is a great homage to an artist to want to cover their songs. Unfortunately imo Chevy metal/foos should have left this one alone. The Nirvana cover of Man who sold the world was brilliant; it makes me wish they would have covered Width of a circle - Kurt could have pulled that one off too and made it his own like he did with MWSTW.

Now Lana del Rey has done a cover of Heart Shaped Box. imo, she is a wonderful talent the likes of Amy Winehouse meets Portishead. Unfortunately the sound quality of this song is poor and she is drowned out by crowd screams. She mumbles more than Kurt!
