    "Sappy" (The Sad Version)

    "Sappy" was first released as a hidden song on the AIDS benefits compilation No Alternative in 1993. At that time, it was called "Verse Chorus Verse." For years, it was one of those lesser known Nirvana songs that every hardcore Nirvana fan seemed to love, but Kurt apparently never liked it enough to release it, although they started playing it live during their 1994 tour.

    Several studio versions were recorded, but it didn't get a proper release until the posthumous 2004 With The Lights Out box set. That version is louder, faster, and more polished, but there's still something chilling about what is often referred to as "the sad version" of the song, an earlier interpretation recorded in Kurt Cobain's house around 1988.—Confusion
