Son Of A Gun - Nirvana - Incesticide

Nirvana:
Kurt Cobain (1967-1994): Lead Vocals & Guitar
Krist Novoselic: Bass Guitar
Dave Grohl: Drums & Back Vocals

This is a Vaselines cover, and it is probably one of the best if not the best in the 
Incesticide.
Please rate, post comments, and enjoy playing! :P
