Forget genre or length of album (even those discordant, atonal synth albums have filler tracks). It's down to opinion. How I see it, filler it pretty self-explanatory. It's extra material that's there just to fill up the album.

Don't we just love filler/throwaway tracks on anticipated albums? *cough Tool *cough

But yeah, lets get this party started with some Nirvana (don't leave just cause you hate Nirvana )


This is what Kurt admitted to be a song that he wrote in like 10 minutes. It's probably the best filler track they made... ever, imho.

This is debatable because it does lead into Jimmy but whatever.... it's still filler

Paranoid is the ultimate filler track. It even became the title track.

Breed and Lounge Act are the two best tracks on Nevermind. Very Ape and Milk It are some of the best on In Utero. The guy knew how to write "throw away" songs. In a way he was better when he wasn't trying (if he is actually to be believed about how long he took to wrote songs).

Somehow, for an album that had 6 singles, three of the best tracks on Automatic for the People are Ignoreland, Try Not to Breathe, and New Orleans Instrumental No.1.
