Best Nirvana Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Oh the Guilt

One of the hardest songs of Nirvana, and one of the best.

42 Verse Chorus Verse

(speaking of the Nevermind outtake here, included on With the Lights Out)

I know it was never an official release, but VCV will always hold a candle of emotion that tops all. Something inside Kurt's voice, almost a melancholy, harmonic tone, accentuates this track alongside Dave's cymbal crashes and Krist's smooth bassline. The riff itself, which amps a little in volume and at the wall of distortion kicking in at the chorus, is daresay soothing and definitely enjoyable, if only for the pure simplistic nature of it that brings out the other wonders of the band's sound inside the song.

Overall, this needs to be higher. I highly recommend a listen to anyone whom has not heard it.

This song has COBAİN'S CLEAR VOİCE LİKE THE OTHER NİRVANA SONGS

43 Jesus Doesn't Want Me for a Sunbeam

I feel like this is the one song that Kurt speaks the greatest in, although the words lack the certain punch most of his songs have. I feel the unique status the character is given in the song reflects Kurt's outsider attitude in real life.

This is one of their best songs! It should at least be in the top 20!

This Song > Smell like teen spirit, one of the bests song I've ever heard in my life, Nirvana ROCKS. - rubenescaray

44 Endless, Nameless

Eternal demonstration of Nirvana's power and rough sounds. Underrated because of being a secret track, but it's really awesome.

Would definitely be higher if it weren't a hidden track

Favorite, should be No.2 at least

Best Nirvana tune ever.

Explores taboo. brilliant.

47 Oh, Me

I'm astounded that this song is not on the list! The top ten list are all good songs, but I don't believe they are as profound or as moving as this one! - jMag220

Maybe some people haven't heard it that's why it's so low in the list

Dude this song is in their top 15!? Everyone knows that?

Best song

This should be way higher! Amazing song

Really a great song with catchy melody and brilliant chorus.

Really? Give this song a shot,you'll fall in love with it!

Yeah

49 Aero Zeppelin

Man, this song should be in the first page. You can enjoy both metal and punk style in this song.

Best nirvana song. Period.
The lyrics, the drums, the voice... And above all, the guitar...
Kurt really shows his guitar skills on this one.

This song is offensively underrated

Great songwriting by kurt

Sure, I'll admit it's structurally flawed. But it's also a grandiose earworm. And frankly, I'd rather have this stuck in my head than any song on pop radio.

52 Molly's Lips

One of the good songs of Nirvana

53 Curmudgeon
54 Sifting

#50? Are you kidding me?

55 Alcohol
56 Son of a Gun

Absolutely love this song, lounge act, drain you, and this song are the most underrated songs by nirvana in my opinion, deserves to be higher!

The original version is better than this cover, but even so, I don't think it's a good song.

Giv it a try d best thing in album insecticide
But hey everything they do is best :P

57 Anorexorcist
58 Been a Son

This song is ironically funny. It may have had nothing to do with his daughter francis but the situation in general is funny, because those parents believe they are disgracing themselves and their family by the things they do. But in reality are just trying to express themselves and their parents can not except that cause they had to leave themselves behind because they never found ones true self.

What man. I did not expect to see this awesome song at #60! That's insane. It may not belong in the top ten but 60 is crazy. I love this song as it's fast paced and easily recognized by Nirvana fans.

This is one of the best Nirvana songs that Kurt wrote. It's one of my favorite Nirvana songs. Please, I'm asking all true fans to vote for this song like crazy!

My favorite Nirvana song.So simple but yet so catchy.Deserves a higher spot.

This song is the best song by Nirvana but the reason it didn't beat smells like teen spirit is because its not on Nevermind. Most people in this world listen to Nevermind music instead of good old late 80's Nirvana

Just listen that song one more time and feel ashamed for not adding this one -this piece is clearly one of best - Trampampulis
