“Lounge Act” - Nirvana

Versions

So called because the band thought the guitar riff sounded like something a cheesy hotel bar band might play. The lyrics concern Cobain's ex Tobi Vail from Bikini Kill, with lines like "I still smell her on you", making it a clear footnote to "...Teen Spirit".

Cobain later wrote an unsettling letter to Vail which read "I don't write songs about you except Lounge Act, which I do not play except when my wife is not around." Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
