"I’ve heard industry women talking about how horrible L7 are, I’ve heard industry women talking about how unattractive PJ Harvey is, which is ridiculous… I just think these powerful women have this real competitive, jealous nature which manifests itself like this. And when I married Kurt, they went into overload." - Courtney Love.

Interviewer: "Was Kurt Cobain a friend of yours? How did his death affect you?"
Layne Staley: "……Kurt and I weren’t the closest of friends, but we ran into each other at shows and hung out a lot. I knew him well enough to be devastated by his death. I just don’t understand it at all. The last time I saw him, he gave me a ride from QFC on Broadway to a friend’s house, the whole way there, which was about a fifteen minute drive, he talked about his daughter. For such a quiet person, he was so excited about having a child, he really loved that little girl. About a month later I saw on the news, that he was dead."

Well it’s named as a compilation album, so you could use both terms. At the time of its release in 1992, it was very exciting for Nirvana fans. This was the first album release since the band’s previous ‘Nevermind’ that featured brand new songs that were previously unreleased with material dating back to 1988. Nirvana recorded so much material in the studios, various versions of different songs from different sessions in different years.
Mexican Seafood was released in 1989 on a Teriyaki Asthma compilation.
Beeswax was released in 1991 on a ‘Kill Rock Stars’ compilation album.
Turnaround, Son Of A Gun and Molly’s Lips were all released on the Japan/Australian 1992 exclusive ‘Hormoaning’ EP.
Dive and Sliver were released on the ‘Sliver’ single in 1990.
Stain was one of the first releases by the band on the ‘Blew’ EP in 1989.
Been A Son. (this song was released in 1989 on the ‘Blew’ EP. Only on ‘Incesticide’ it features a brand new version, unheard of at the time.)
Aneurysm. (this song was released earlier in 1992 on ‘Hormoaning’ and even earlier in 1991 on the ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ single but this particular version was brand new.)
Big Long Now.
Polly [New Wave].
Downer. (most people forget that when ‘Bleach’ was originally released in 1989, this track wasn’t included until 1990-92 when Sub Pop re-issued the album to CD, cassette and vinyl. Even though the song was technically already released earlier in 1992, it was still very new.)
