Friday Lyric Quiz, #440 (In Which Nirvana is Again Honored)

I’ve talked a bit about Nirvana this week, as last Saturday (9/24) marked two decades since the release of Nevermind.  Yawn, blurg, overrated, tortured a’hole, black Converse All-Stars, blah blah blah.  I’m writing the quiz, so bear with me. Today’s theme – as it was on the 15th (10th?) anniversary of Kurt’s death – is all things Nirvana.  Note that nearly every song is “early 90s,” because, clearly.

Serious fans will know instantly from the mere little snippets of lyrics.  Non-fans may take this opportunity to dive back into a little catalog we call BleachNevermindIn Utero.  Yeah folks, just three studio albums.  (Props to MTV Unplugged in New York as well). Whether a fan or not, you must admit that, at one point, Nirvana meant something to someone, and for that reason alone, they will be missed.
