The year is 1993. Kurt Cobain is still alive, and Nirvana‘s latest album “In Utero” has just been released. Its first single was Heart Shaped Box.
Almost two decades later, in the summer of 2012, the reaching-her-pick singer and songwriter Lana Del Rey covered “Heart Shaped Box”: one of her favorite songs from childhood. While the original version is, umm, the original, we have to admit that Lana did a great job. And she even achieved to sound different that her usual sound.
After releasing this cover, however, Cobain’s wife Courtney Love stated in Twitter that “the song was about my vag*na”. After all, perhaps it is no coincidence that Lana covered this particular track – anyone remember her “Cola” song, and what it tastes like – at least according to the lyrics?
