about

Our interpretive homage to Kurt Cobain and Nirvana who played such a pivotal role in our musical character, formation, and lives in general. Respectfully, we hope this arrangement finds his fans gaining a new insight to how his emotion and words retain their power even when they're not presented over the familiar, and much loved music we've known for 25 years. And that this will bring people who see it back to revisit the original with fresh ears. Thanks for taking the time to give this a chance.

lyrics

Load up on guns, bring your friends. It's fun to lose and to pretend. She's over-bored and self-assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word.
Hello, hello, hello, how low. Hello, hello, hello, how low. Hello, hello, hello, how low. Hello, hello, hello
With the lights out, it's less dangerous. Here we are now, entertain us.
I feel stupid and contagious. Here we are now, entertain us.
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido. Yeah. Hey, yay.
I'm worse at what I do best. And for this gift I feel blessed. Our little group has always been . And always will until the end
Hello, hello, hello, how low. Hello, hello, hello, how low. Hello, hello, hello, how low. Hello, hello, hello
With the lights out, it's less dangerous. Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious. Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido. Yeah! Hey, yay.
And I forget just why I taste. Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile.
I found it hard, was hard to find. Oh well, whatever, never mind
Hello, hello, hello, how low. Hello, hello, hello, how low. Hello, hello, hello, how low. Hello, hello, hello
With the lights out, it's less dangerous. Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious. Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido.
A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial
A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial
