I like Nirvana alot, but I really can't see why anyone would really like this song. The vocals were not very good and the guitar was almost scary.

This is a three track single that was released during the rising fame of Nirvana, one of my favorite bands. Of course, the single starts off with the album version of 'Lithium', then continues with a live version of 'Been A Sun', back when this single was released, the song Been A Sun hadn't even been released yet, only a few months later when Incesticide hit shelves. But this is a live version, and a hard to find live recording as well. But what really makes this single valuable is the third and final track-a rare Nirvana song entitled: 'Curmudgeon', a song that reminds me of their previous songs. It was recorded in a mini studio, if you ever hear it you will know-the sound quality is awful. But you won't bother, the music is great. Classic Nirvana song. Also what makes this single valuable is that it includes every lyric to Nevermind, something just about everyone makes up if they don't understand the words cause their's really no place that shows the lyrics beyond this single. But the artwork makes this album even more great, the front, back, and inside art being personally created by Kurt himself. It's dark look shows the true side of Nirvana, any hard-core Nirvana or rock fan can't go without this single. The front cover is naked dolls of some sort standing infront of the camera, while the backside cover is even more fascinating-a complete human skeleton resting on a bed of roses covered in barb-wire. It's not as ugly as it sounds. The inside cover shows a screen that is a baby inside a mother's womb. Something Kurt had a fascination of. This single is a must, as it shows more sides to Nirvana than any of their major-label records ever showed.
