    Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia, The Magnolia Electric Co.) was widely beloved by musicians; anyone who’s ever tried to channel the blues would know how pure his were. Here, My Morning Jacket, Wooden Wand, Catherine Irwin and more tackle 27 of his songs.

    "Lithium" - St. Vincent (w/ Dave Grohl, Krist Novaselic, and Pat Smear)
    originally by Nirvana

    While the other singers who fronted Nirvana at their Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame introduction last week mostly, um, didn’t do well (Joan Jett, Lorde), Annie Clark (aka St Vincent) did a bang up job of Kurt-ing things up on this heartfelt version of “Lithium”.
