Nirvana - “Lithium” (Live)
I’m posting a performance of this song in honor of Kurt Cobain’s birthday today. This is easily one of my all-time favorite Nirvana songs. It’s just flawless.
And this has got to be my favorite performance of it. The energy level is awesome and you can really see that Kurt and the rest of the band are having a blast singing it live.
I just absolutely love the chorus when Kurt uses his “scream” voice. Just gets me every time. It is so powerful and angry and bitter, I just can listen to it for hours on end. And it is definitely better live than in the studio.
So, yeah, happy birthday, Kurt. I’ll be listening to your music and thinking of you today.
