I first heard of the Velvet Underground when I was about 11. I was obsessed with Nirvana and I heard them do a cover of "If She Ever Comes Now". I was playing it, and my dad said that was a Velvet Underground song. Then he went out and bought me a copy of The Velvet Underground and Nico, which blew me away. I think it's their best, even if that's a cliche album of theirs to love.
