63. "Big Long Now"
Stylistically, "Big Long Now" is indebted to Black Flag's My War and that LP's polarizing, sludgy, glacially paced Side B. Recorded in one take for Bleach, "Big Long Now" didn't make the track list – it probably lost out to the similarly plodding "Sifting" – but was rescued from the scrap heap when producer Jack Endino lobbied for its inclusion on B-side comp Incesticide. No live performances of the song have ever surfaced, but a video of the Nirvana rehearsing the track at Krist Novoselic's mother's house in 1988 appeared on the With the Lights Out DVD. DANIEL KREPS
