Nirvana Covers DEVO’s “Turnaround”

Two 7″ single version of “Whip It” were released, one was backed with a remix of the track “Snowball”, which would appear on “Freedom of Choice”, and the other was backed with hugely underplayed “Turnaround”. “Turnaround” would be covered by Nirvana and included on their 1992 compilation album, “Incesticide”. The Nirvana version of the song has become so popular that most people do not even associate the song with DEVO.

Here is Nirvana performing “Turnaround” live:
