Puddle of Mudd are going viral for a less-than-stellar cover of Nirvana’s “About a Girl.” Released earlier this year, the cover laid dormant for nearly three months before jumping from 4,000 to nearly 700,000 views in just a couple of days.

Wes Scantlin has reportedly sobered up after many years of struggling with substance abuse, calling his recent incarceration a blessing from God. Before coronavirus canceled all concerts, Puddle of Mudd also held an online Battle of the Bands to secure opening acts for their tour.
