From Nirvana‘s classic album Never Mind, “In Bloom” was the last single to be released from it. Its video was a glorious piss-take of old variety shows depicting the band playing the song rather tamely Beatles-style. Which was perfectly fitting seeing as the song criticised those who didn’t exactly “get” the band back in the day. In short: it’s yet another cool song from one of the most essential rock albums around.
The third single from Nirvana‘s iconic album Nevermind and one of my favourite songs of the bunch, “Lithium” is a partly quiet, partly loud track which really puts the band’s spirit on display. It’s just one of those songs that needs to be played with the volume way up. Head-banging is a must with this one, frankly.
