Best Nirvana Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Endless, Nameless 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

42 Stay Away Stay Away

Deserves to be in the top 10 at least! This is like Breed 2.0 and rocks just as hard as that song so get this up there immediately!

I love this song it makes me feel happy. Rip kurt

It should be on the top 10... I think this song is the most powerful song by nirvana.. Very strong.. Very good

This song is criminally underrated

43 Oh Me 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?

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

45 Aero Zeppelin 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.

Why the hell is this song down here!

It's a nice improvised ditty. It's a shame that those who lived in the U.S. had to wait 11 years to hear this.

This is the hidden track on in utero. I don't much about it... But it is a pretty good song. ^_^ nirvana forever!

48 Big Long Now Big Long Now

I've been a major Nirvana fan since 1991 and the Nirvana songs that are great are truly but Big Long Now is too underrated and deserves it's weight in gold just listen to it and you will know why.

Listen to this song and you will understand what Kurt Cobain can do with his musical brain. Listen to the mood that this song brings and you will find yourself in love with that song.
Can we show our faces now?

Just amazing! One of my favorite

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.

51 Mollys lips Mollys lips

One of the good songs of Nirvana

52 Paper Cuts Paper Cuts

Kurt said that paper cuts and smells like teen spirit are the two songs that describe nirvana. Definitely one of the best songs of nirvana!

An intense combination of a badass drum rhythm, distorted guitars and a killer chorus, certainly better than the majority of Nevermind

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

This is Kurt at his worst. His chipmunk voice alterations make the song painfully grating, and they drown out the acoustic guitar. The "Montage of Heck" version is much better, as the painfullyrics bad opening is cut, and the voice is slightly lower, making it a bit more bearable. But still, this was a mistake that should've never been dug up.

It's alright. I usually skip this one while listening to With The Lights Out as it gets annoying quickly but sometimes it is tolerable.

Beans is awesome and funny it deserves to be in the top 10

59 Been a Son 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!

A pretty dam Good Song

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
