The 2006 documentary Kurt Cobain - About A Son kept things simple — previously unreleased interviews with Cobain narrate a recounting of his life to a moving montage of images from the Pacific Northwest cities and towns that backdropped his journey. The accompanying soundtrack is similarly tasteful and more importantly, anyone who's ever read anything about the man would likely agree he would have approved of these music selections — many of which influenced his own tunes. Not only did Cobain champion the Vaselines, he also covered their songs including “Son of a Gun,” which is featured here. And Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Up Around the Bend” was another tune he and Krist Novoselic played (though it was in their pre-Nirvana CCR cover band). Sure, Mudhoney’s “Touch Me I’m Sick” is a little predictable – but then the pre-grunge garage-rock anthem has aged better than anything on the soundtrack to Cameron Crowe’s 1992 film Singles.
