“Blew” is the title of a song and EP released by American rock band Nirvana.
“Blew” was written in 1988 by Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain. The song was recorded in December 1988 and initially appeared as the first track on Nirvana’s 1989 debut album Bleach. Blew remained one of the only songs from the Bleach era that remained on Nirvana’s live setlist throughout their entire performance history. Even on the band’s final show on March 1st, 1994 in Munich, Germany, it was performed during the encore, giving it the distinction of being the second to last song ever performed by the band. In addition to the song “Blew”, the release also includes “Love Buzz”. This mix of “Love Buzz” is the Bleach version, as opposed to the 7″ Sub Pop Singles version mix. The version of “Been a Son” that was recorded for the EP is hailed as the “definitive take” of that song as it encompasses Nirvana’s thrashing signature sound as well as Krist Novoselic’s bass guitar solo being much more pronounced in the mix. “Stain” features both dual vocal and dual guitar tracks.
