90. "Anorexorcist"

This growly, Melvins-y grinder has been around since Cobain's 1985 Fecal Matter demos, but didn't live too much longer. Cobain reconfigured the riffs and lyrics, sped up the tempo, and began performing it as "Anorexorcist" at some of Nirvana's earliest gigs and the well-circulated 1987 KAOS session (whose recording ended up on With the Lights Out). Despite its engaging fast-verse/slow-chorus vibe, it met its demise around a 1988 show where the band, billed as Ted Ed Fred, were joined by Cobain's old Fecal Matter bandmate Dale Crover on drums.
