Straight Outta Veruca Salt Lake City

One of the coolest things is to find out what one hit wonders and has been bands or musicians are doing today. I bumped into Nina Gordon's new stuff on the ever great interweb. Nina who, you must be asking. Well, Nina used to be in Veruca Salt, which is one of those nice grrrl pwwwr bands that ruled in the nineties. I'm not all that stoked about Nina's solo stuff but this cover song made me laugh.

I know it's a thing that's been done before, mess some gangsta rap songs with easylistening versions or such (yuh know Richard Cheese with gin and juice), but this sounded... honest? Enjoy this crazy stuff still.

Yup, this is what cover versions should be all about. making your own interpretation. No matter what it sounds like.

Nina's NWA thing has been circulating in the interweb for some time now, as well as some other cool cover songs of hers. Like Cinderella's "Nobody's Fool", Skid Row's "18 & Life" and (AGAIN!) Phil Collins' "One MOre NIght"...
