Our favorite Nirvana song is “On A Plain” off of Nevermind (sadly, we weren’t cool enough to have our favorite song come off of Bleach, the band’s first album).

Having said that, there’s something about this song we’ve always loved … particularly this version, which was recorded live for MTV Unplugged less than five months before the suicide (?) of the band’s iconic front man, Kurt Cobain.

Oh, if you’d like to hear the original studio version (off of 1993’s In Utero), click here.


What else should I be?
All apologies.
What else could I say?
Everyone is gay.
What else could I write?
I don’t have the right.
What else should I be?
All Apologies.

In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun

I wish I was like you
Easily amused
Find my nest of salt
Everything is my fault
I’ll take all the blame
aqua seafoam shame
Sunburn with freezer burn
Choking on the ashes of her enemy

In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun
Married, Married, Married!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

All in all is all we are
