Click to enlarge

Kurt Cobain would have been 46 today. In honor of the departed Nirvana frontman, this edition of the 5 O’Clock Shadow features Nirvana’s cover of Lead Belly’s 1944 blues piece “Where Did You Sleep Last Night?”

Nirvana re-popularized this track during their legendary MTV Unplugged set. Cobain chose to end with this song and when asked for an encore, he felt he couldn’t top that performance of “Where Did You Sleep Last Night?”

Check out both versions below.
