    "Old Age"

    Kurt originally wrote "Old Age" during the recording sessions for Nevermind, but handed off the song to Courtney Love for use with her band Hole (Love changed the lyrics to the verses of her version, but left the chorus intact.) Nirvana's recording, however, was only ever recorded as a demo and wasn't released until 2004's With the Lights Out compilation. The song itself, with its mid-tempo chug and emotionally-scarred delivery, is peak Nirvana—it's no wonder Love wanted to record the track herself.—Nathan Reese
