iTunes Review

With the explosive, unexpected success of Nirvana’s Nevermind, the band and its record label issued a set of frequently bootlegged material while Nirvana toured and worked up the songs for what would become In Utero. Nirvana had enough outtakes, limited-edition early singles, and live BBC radio recordings to assemble Incesticide, a collection truer to the band’s free spirit than its official studio albums. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” had introduced a well-produced alternative rock band with vague punk roots, but here two Vaselines covers (“Molly’s Lips,” “Son of a Gun”) and a Devo cover (“Turnaround”) were more Nirvana's style. The early single “Sliver” was a key track—as catchy as anything Cobain would ever write—while the version of “(New Wave) Polly” furthered the band's loose ends. “Been a Son” and “Aneurysm” stick closer to Nirvana's punk-pop side, while “Mexican Seafood,” “Hairspray Queen,” and “Aero Zeppelin” experiment toward the harder extremes. 

Customer Reviews

my mom made me get rid of this album.... 1992; I was 14. I tried to tell her it was a typo: "It was supposed to be 'Insecticide', Mom!" Yeah, that didn't work....

In 1992, this album and a whole lot of other stuff like the Dead Kennedys and the Circle Jerks led me into the gigantic world of underground music. It made me stop listening to G n' R and Poison.

(But my Mom helped with that too. "....why would you want to listen to a group of men who dress like women?! Look at these high heels and their lipstick!")

Now was that so hard

I can't believe it after like a bazillion years itunes finally got the idea from all the reviews and the emails that maybe we wanted incesticide on itunes. Now the public only needs kurt's demo tapes before nirvana and we be all set.


Mickey.1972... You should really educate yourself on this band before you bash this recording. After all Nirvana was initially a very raw post-punk band. Bleach was their first album in 89'(you must not of heard that one) and Nevermind was their "sophmore" recording that came out in 91'. This is a collection of B-sides that they decided to release for real fans in 92'. If you don't like it, that's okay, but you probably should have kept your comment to yourself because you sound like an idiot!


Formed: 1987 in Aberdeen, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s

Prior to Nirvana, alternative music was consigned to specialty sections of record stores, and major labels considered it to be, at the very most, a tax write-off. After the band's second album, 1991's Nevermind, nothing was ever quite the same, for better and for worse. Nirvana popularized punk, post-punk, and indie rock, unintentionally bringing them into the American mainstream like no other band to date. While their sound was equal parts Black Sabbath (as learned by fellow Washington underground...
