Rise Against Covers Nirvana’s ‘Sliver’

The latest in the A.V. Club’s ongoing Undercover feature, in which it invites today’s (and yesterday’s) indie elite to cover classic songs, is here. The last feature was a killer pairing of The Antlers and Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here.’ This week, the A.V. Club brings you Chicago punk rock outfit Rise Against covering Nirvana’s excellent early cut ‘Sliver.’ I’ll still take the original over this, but the band turns in an admirable rendition—the loud/soft dynamic suits their aesthetic perfectly.

Haven’t heard the original in a while? Check it out here. By the way, that’s Kurt’s adorable daughter, Frances Bean, dancing to the bass line at the start of the video.
