Best Nirvana Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Beans

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.

Kurt was just messing around when he made this song and it proves songs don't always have to be serious - Kfox101

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

62 Hairspray Queen

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

#50? Are you kidding me?

64 Turnaround
65 Stain
66 Do Re Mi

I can't believe this song is so low. This is my favorite Nirvana song. It's so beautiful! The voice, the guitar, the lyrics. Everything in this song is perfect!

This and Old Age are so underatted! The lyrics to this song totally get me every time I hear it. I'm so glad I found this song because I know this will be played at my funeral

Everyone needs to hear this song!

Yeah this song is really great

Found this song through Yelawolf's Marijuana song. Didn't realise it was actually Nirvana's!

Love how he gets so intense in this song. And describes Mary Jane so amusingly.

I like it better than teen spirit. You rock kurt

This is one of their best songs, BUT only listen to it if you're alobe or having sex

68 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?

It's sounds almost otherworldly in a strange way. - Kfox101

Wow! 106? Should be higher! At least in the top 50's. - johnpaularguelles

71 Seasons In the Sun

I love this song, its way too underrated. - Gruunge

72 Pen Cap Chew
73 Even in His Youth

Great song. One of Kurt's deepest and tragic songs. It is a perfect song to describe rejection.R.I.P Kurt

HIGHER UP GUYS! so many underrated!

74 Gallons of Rubbing Alcohol Flow Through the Strip

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!

75 Here She Comes Now

This doesn't only deserve to be included in the top 10. It should be the first. The guitar is euphoric and the way it goes up and down gives me an adrenaline rush. Download a high quality version and you won't stop repeating it.

Lou Reed

76 Mr. Mustache

The best punky depiction of Nirvana's early (most expressive) work

Greatest and also hardest to repeat nirvana riff ever

75? What the heck!? It should be in the top 20 at least. - EDogPlaysGuitar

77 High On the Hog

This is actually a TAD song. Kurt performed the vocals for it one night during a tour with TAD in Europe because TAD's lead singer, Tad Doyle, had passed out. Look it up on YouTube - Kfox101

78 Scoff

The drumming in this song is just too awesome, the guitar riff fits it exactly.
The perfect bleach song for music lovers

This is the definition of grunge people!
