Nirvana, 'In Bloom'

415. Nirvana, 'In Bloom'

Writer: Kurt Cobain
Producer: Butch Vig

"I don't like rednecks, I don't like macho men," Cobain once said. This track about a guy who "loves to shoot his gun" would become one of Nirvana's biggest live anthems. It started out as more of a hardcore rant. "It sounded like a Bad Brains song," said Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. Then, "One day Kurt called me and started singing. It was the 'In Bloom' of Nevermind, more of a pop thing."

Appears on: Nevermind (Geffen)
