A Crazy Muthafucka Named Nina

Feb 22, 2005 in Music

One of the most unusual covers I’ve heard in recent memory is Nina Gordon’s acoustic rendition of NWA’s “Straight Outta Compton.” Nina is formerly of the group Veruca Salt, and is now a pop-folk singer currently recording her second solo album.

Nina’s site also features covers of 80s hair metal bands Skid Row and Cinderella. A video mash-up of Nina’s cover with the original NWA video can be found here.
