Cobain felt a constant tension between his desire to be heard and to remain true to his punk ideals. He sought not just to become part of the mainstream conversation but to elevate it. With each album he proved more adept at answering that challenge.

следующий концертный “Unplugged” может и нравится мне больше, но усталость и отчаяние “In Utero” бьет каждой песней:
