Radio Friendly Unit Shifter?


Wow, I feel like a tool for knowing Nirvana songs. In Utero was a pretty good album, though
Q: Favourite Pink Floyd song?
A: The one where they get wicked high and play Emin and A for an hour.

Frances Farmer will have her revenge on Seattle. There's **** all wrong with knowing Nirvana songs: they did some cracking stuff. In Utero's definitely my favourite Nirvana album.

Rape Me. Do it. And make sure to pick out one GUY in the crowd, and look at only him during the entire song. Or if you're a girl, look at a girl.

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?

Rape Me and Lake of Fire are ridiculously overdone. Please PLEASE don't do either of them.

i know three or four of the bands that we gig with play Rape Me quite a bit but i dont hear lake of fire much, thats why i was leaning to it cause its recognisable but not done to death. Is it done a lot where you are from?

My favorite album is In Utero, a lot of the stuff on there is really good, like Serve the Servants and Frances Will have Revenge...the latter part of Nevermind has some pretty lesser known of stuff, and don't forget about Incesticide.

Good luck.

Or, play some Pearl Jam or Silverchair.


we have pearl jam songs in our sets but we all love nirvana so we wanted to do one of their songs but smells like teen spirit, heart shaped box, lithium ect. just get a bit old when every cover band in the area does them every night

"Love Buzz" is actually a song that Nirvana covered themselves.

I would say some good ones to cover would be "Big Cheese", "Scentless Apprentice", "Swap-Meet", "On A Plain", "Very Ape", but most DEFINITELY "Lounge Act" or "Serve the Servants"
