Nirvana - Downer

Nirvana - Downer

Nobody for sure knows what this song is about but that is how Kurt would have wanted it. But here are some guesses/facts/reviews about "Downer" from songfacts.com : This was Kurt Cobain's attempt at a political song. In the song, Cobain laments on nuclear war, radicals who believe the world is going to end, and other issues. Said Kurt: "I was trying to be Mr. Black Flag Punk-rock guy... I didn't know what I was talking about." This song was included on Nirvana's album Incesticide after it's release on Bleach because it was a song Nirvana rarely played live and Kurt Cobain wanted people to hear it.

For a song that he recorded twice and put out three times, Cobain didn't think much of it: "I was trying to be Mr. Political Punk Rock Black Flag guy," Cobain told Michael Azerrad. "I really didn't know what I was talking about. I was just throwing together words." Cobain rarely left his own head (or Aberdeen's city limits) when searching for lyrical material, so one of Nirvana's only attempts at politics, "Downer" is a bit of a sore thumb -- a remnant of Cobain's early immersion in hardcore, raging against "conservative communist apocalyptic bastard[s]." "Downer" is the only song from his 1985 Fecal Matter demo to ever land on an official Nirvana album: It was tacked on to the CD version of Bleach, and later appeared again on Incesticide. The Melvins' Dale Crover, bassist and drummer on the original, returns on drums, nearly doubling the tempo and turning a mechanical plod into a breakneck, Devo-esque blast. Tuning: Half step down. Equipment used: Fender Jag-Stang Boss DS-1 and Fender Mustang IV amp Lyrics: Portray sincerity Act out of loyalty Defend every country Wish away the pain Hand out lobotomies To save little families Surrealistic fantasy Bland, boring pain! Hold me down in restitution Living out your date with fusion Is the whole fleece shun in master? Don't feel guilty, master writing Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can Make enough of the words as you go along, I sing then some Sickening pessimist hypocrite master Conservative Communist apocalyptic bastard Thank you dear God for putting me on this Earth I feel very privileged in debt for my thirst! Hold me down in restitution Living out your date with fusion Is the whole fleece shun in master? Don't feel guilty, master writing Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can Make enough of the words as you go along, I sing then some Nirvana downer guitar cover
