    "Verse Chorus Verse"

    The very literal title of "Verse Chorus Verse" could have been applied to just about any Nirvana song, or even be seen as a satirical poke at the so-called "loud-quiet" dynamic that the press latched onto at the time. As it so happens, the title is also attached to one of Nevermind's best outtakes. Recorded at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys and produced by Butch Vig, the track does indeed embody the mix of hard and soft that made Nirvana famous. Confusingly, the song "Sappy" also used the title "Verse Chorus Verse" as a placeholder, showing just how generic an appellation the title really is.—Nathan Reese
