75. "White Lace and Strange"
Captured on tape in April 1987 during their first-ever live radio session, the very young band performed a blistering cover of this heavy rocker by super-obscure late-Sixties power trio Thunder and Roses. Only months after Cobain and Novoselic formed the band with original drummer Aaron Burckhard, Nirvana's far-reaching musical taste and scorching attack were already twin hallmarks. Raw though it may be, Cobain's guitar solo might also be the shreddingest thing he ever recorded. DANIEL EPSTEIN
