Best Songs From Nirvana's In Utero

The Top Ten

1 Heart Shaped Box

Best Nirvana song. - Userguy44

Absolutely beautiful. A masterpiece in it's own right.


Rip Kurt Cobain

Heart-Shaped Box is, not even probably, the best song there ever is. Not only is In Utero the best Nirvana Album, it may as well be one of the best of any album. Heart Shaped Box has Excellent Lyrics and still being a heavy song. The only reason why I didn't choose All Apologies is because the MTV version is the best and this is In Utero. Another good song is Serve The Servants.

8 Scentless Apprentice

You can hear his pain in his voice and this was the first song the band had written, Kurt wrote everything before this

The screams.

9 Radio Friendly Unit Shifter

Hey that’s pretty good.

''what is what with me? '' and ''what is wrong with me? '' are like a parasite to your brain if you listen to it more than 3 times.

The Contenders

11 Tourette's

Why is this down here :( it's my 6th favorite in the album and keeps some punk style that I really like maybe people don't like this one very ape and milk it beacause they're heavier? Whats going on with the world

Maybe people don't like this one because of the sceams but it's the heaviest (with other 2 amazing songs: milk it and very ape) and one of the coolest songs i’ve ever heard

My list:
1. Heart-shaped box
2. Frances farmer will have her revenge on seattle
3. R*pe me
4. All apologies
5. Dumb
6. Tourette’s
7. Milk it
8. Very ape
9. Pennyroyal tea
10. Serve the servants
11. Scentless apprentice
12. Radio friendly unit shifter
(Then sides-b)

All of this songs are amazing and this is best nirvana album with no doubt

12 Very Ape

Very Ape and Tourette's are two of the best songs on this album, and they're down here? That's a travesty. Kurt blasts out lyrics, Dave pounds the drums, and Krist's slamming the bass. Those two minutes are the best musical, lyrical and otherwise, minutes I've ever heard. Heart-Shaped Box is great, but this list is messed. My four in my opinion best songs on In Utero are 4th, 10th, 11th, and 12th? VERY APE IS A MASTERPIECE.

In my honest opinion, Kurt's pessimistic look upon himself by considering himself primitive and illiterate makes it a reflective song wrapped in some awesome guitar riffs and bass sections.

Veryape and very amazing
