Vs. Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Black Betty

[Kurt Cobain] Thank you. This was written by my favorite performer. Our favorite perfomer, isn’t it? All of ours? You like him the best?

[Krist Novoselic] Oh and here’s a donation basket for one supply of Leadbelly’s guitar

[Kurt Cobain] Oh yeah, this guy representing the Leadbelly’s estate wants to sell me Leadbelly’s guitar for $500,000

[Krist Novoselic] Passing a basket

[Kurt Cobain] Yeah, I even asked David Geffen personally if he’d buy it for me. He wouldn’t do it

A classic moment from Unplugged in New York, an piece of brilliance from Nirvana¬†which brings us to this week’s head to head thanks the the tenuous link of Huddie “Lead Belly” Ledbetter also writing “Black Betty“. In the Red Corner we have Leo Moracchioli from Frog Leap Studios who has kept us entertained with weekly Metalised covers as the multi instrumentalist fuses chunky riffs to the skeletons of those songs like turing soldier Logan into warrior Wolverine with the addition of adamantium. In the Red Corner we have the much underrated Soil who have toiled at the coal face since the success of album “Scars” and huge hit single “Halo“. But none the less much like KoRn, they seem here to stay. You know what’s happening next. Who wins? You Decide!
