This reminds me of my childhood friend who use to buy all the nirvana singles just for that one extra song..

tracking all their rarities and bootleg albums and it was so hard to track them back in the early 90's because the internet hadn't really exploded back then and some cds were hard as sh*t to hunt down..

Im not a collector myself so i don't care for buying the in utero cd again for sentimental reasons, i feel i don't need to..
neither do i care much for celebrating the anniversary of one of their albums or Kurt's death for that matter..

i don't need to buy their re-released songs that i already know for nostalgia reasons because i still know them by heart..

Plus i just saw the track listing and i think they missed a few rarities

I think I still have it, I wonder if it's worth anything seeing the single was withdrawn.
I couldn't remember how this went so I went to youtube. Its kind of funny what passed for legit lyrics then. If anyone had written that today, I would have no time for it.

Its also odd that such irreverent lyrics and wholly crushing depression took hold that strongly with the young kids. I mean, its weird to think that many people signed up to be depressed.

Had to be there I guess.

I'm on my time with everyone
I have very bad posture

I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty

Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld
So I can sigh eternally

I'm so tired I can't sleep
I'm anemic royalty
I'm a liar and a thief
I'm anemic royalty

I'm on warm milk and laxatives
Cherry flavored antacids

I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty

In fairness it was replacing this sort of thing...

Swingin' on the front porch
Swingin' on the lawn
Swingin' where we want
'Cause there ain't nobody home
Swingin' to the left
And swingin' to the right
If I think about baseball
I'll swing all night yea

Swingin' in the living room
Swingin' in the kitchen
Most folks don't 'cause
They're too busy bitchin'
Swingin' in there 'cause
She wanted me to feed her
So I mixed up the batter
And she licked the beater

I scream you scream
We all scream for her
Don't even try 'cause
You can't ignore her

She's my cherry pie
Cool drink of water
Such a sweet surprise
Tastes so good
Make a grown man cry
Sweet cherry pie oh yea
She's my cherry pie
Put a smile on your face
Ten miles wide
Looks so good
Bring a tear to your eye
Sweet cherry pie

Swingin' to the drums
Swingin' to guitar
Swingin' to the bass
In the back of my car
Ain't got money
Ain't got no gas
But we'll get where
We're goin' if we
Swing real fast

I scream you scream
We all scream for her
Don't even try 'cause
You can't ignore her

She's my cherry pie
Cool drink of water
Such a sweet surprise
Tastes so good
Make a grown man cry
Sweet cherry pie oh yea
She's my cherry pie
Put a smile on your face
Ten miles wide
Looks so good
Bring a tear to your eye
Sweet cherry pie, yeah, pie

Swing it! All night long,
Swing it!
Swingin the bathroom
Swingin' on the floor
Swingin' so hard
We forgot to lock the door
In walks her daddy
Standin' six foot four
He said you ain't gonna swing
With my daughter no more

She's my cherry pie
Cool drink of water
Such a sweet surprise
Tastes so good
Make a grown man cry
Sweet cherry pie oh yea
She's my cherry pie
Put a smile on your face
Ten miles wide
Looks so good
Bring a tear to your eye
Sweet cherry pie
Sweet cherry pie

such a well produced album too.. the guitar sounds great and the drums sound amazing! Albini did his thing..

the sound reminds me a little of the surfer rosa album by the pixies it has like a raw refined sound to it that is very loud and powerful
again could not agree more....this album in more ways than one set in stone my musical preference as far as rock music is concerned

yeah that was me at 17 ....i can honestly say that the first Nirvana song i ever heard was the B side to Smells Like Teen Spirit....Even In His Youth

i think it's kind of unfortunate all of this stuff was released on the box set a few years back....save the live show

personally not much of a collector anymore but this makes a great gift for a friend of mine

@Urban - Which is an improvement, but why depression, I guess is what I'm saying.


@bob. - I was into it, but I was about 11 at the time it came out and I honestly didn't listen to the words. I always assumed bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam were enjoyed by everyone, but they were never anyone's "favorite" band. Don't know why I assumed that, I guess they just didn't inspire a godless passion in me.

I don't know, all these years later the whole time period seems weird to me. OK soda, music videos, Bevis & Butthead, Clueless, baggy clothes...the 90's were one big, failed experiment.

Speaking from a U.S. perspective, even the country seemed to be all over the place. Our politics were insane, riots were all over the place, television became dominated by day-time talk shows, rap went from becoming super-hardcore to selling out about as fast and as hard as any genre to date, the OJ Simpson trial was eternal, and being super depressed was the coolest **** in the world.

@Big3

lol i agree, depression was popular in the 90's but it wasn't that bad
and Grunge wasn't the only music around, Green day, No doubt, The Foo fighters, The breeders, all these bands were around in the 90's and they weren't depressive in fact they were the alternative to depressive grunge bands

and speaking of beavis and butthead, did you ever hear this song?

Nirvana - 1993 - I Hate Myself & I Want to Die [Beavis And Butt-head] [vinyl] [HQ Audio] - YouTube

This cd is one of those that my friend had a hard time tracking but thankfully he did and that's why i know this song

supposedly there is an opposite ver called 'I love myself i want to live' but i never heard it i think it was just a myth

I love prog rock but miss those days a lot. I wonder if I genuinely consider the 90s to have been a marvellous decade or if it is that I'm getting older, hence nostalgic; though I seriously do miss that time and will drink a toast to this album on the spot. What would Kurt be doing nowadays if he was here with all of us?

He'd be dead.

Greetings all, signed up on here a while back but hadn't posted at all.
First post!

When In Utero came out I was 22 and in college. After Nevermind, I wondered how they would top that. Then I started hearing all the 'buzz' about this one before it was released and it was all, "oh, it's a huge departure from Nevermind/Kurt wanted to distance himself from all of the success of that one/the record company didn't like it/blah blah blah."

Once I picked it up, I was floored. It WAS hugely different from Nevermind, but THAT's what made it all the more better. Loved the heaviness of it and the furious/rapid vocals, right along with the mournful voice on tracks like Pennyroyal Tea and whatnot.

Definitely one of my favorite albums and in my opinion one of the very few great albums from the so-called 'grunge' area, though I never considered them in that category.

I'm glad they're doing the 20th Anniversary thing on this. I picked up the Nevermind super deluxe version and the Bleach deluxe version when those came out.

Initially I had been interested in the super deluxe as well for this one, but have decided to only pick up the deluxe. Don't need the extra 'live' cd and would much rather have the dvd in its own case. With the Nevermind super, I never really listed to the live cd and it's a bit annoying to take out the entire set just to grab the dvd. Yeah, minor nitpicks, but the $$$ was a factor too.

Anyway, just checked Amazon (though I'm going to pick them up in-store) and checked the deluxe version (about $21) has two discs, which were the only ones I am interested in, and those contain all the tracks on the first two cds of the SUPER deluxe. I'll pick up the Live and Loud dvd with this, and I'll be set. Oh, and the Live and Loud has been on my 'get this damn thing out already' for ages. So spending about $40 on both of these is way better than $120-$140 (whatever the price range will be).
