  • 33 1/3: Nirvana's In Utero


The songs expressed a heartfelt anguish that would later cause some to interpret the entire album as a cry for help, but even at the time of its release IN UTERO could easily be read as an album focused on physical and spiritual sickness. Rather than being overwhelmed by circumstances, however, Cobain's songs on In Utero show him - for the most part - still able and willing to fight back. As such, among Nirvana's recorded efforts, it stands as Cobain's most personal work. Gillian G. Gaar is the author of SHE'S A REBEL: THE HISTORY OF WOMEN IN ROCK'N'ROLL. She served as project consultant on the Nirvana box set WITH THE LIGHTS OUT. Keep up with 33 1/3 series news.
