song of the week 31: breed

Breed” by Nirvana

  • Genre: Grunge/Punk Rock
  • Single Release Date: Album only September 1991
  • Album: “Nevermind

One of few fast and frenetic tracks on Nevermind this creates a jolt of energy when listening to the album in sequence. Although “Smells Like Teen Spirit” gets the attention from this album this is equally as good. It was originally titled “Immodium” for an album that never happened and then re-recorded and renamed for Nevermind.

Lyrics

I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care, care if it’s old
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind
I don’t mind, mind, don’t have a mind

Get away, get away, get away
Get away, away, away from your home
I’m afraid, I’m afraid, I’m afraid
I’m afraid, afraid, ghost

Even if you have, even if you need
I don’t mean to stare, we don’t have to breed
We could plant a house, we could build a tree
I don’t even care, we could have all three

She said, she said
She said, she said
She said, she said
She said, she said

I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care
I don’t care, care, care if it’s old
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind
I don’t mind, mind, don’t have a mind

Get away, get away, get away
Get away, away, away from your home
I’m afraid, I’m afraid, I’m afraid
I’m afraid, afraid, ghost

Even if you have, even if you need
I don’t mean to stare, we don’t have to breed
We can plant a house, we can build a tree
I don’t even care, we could have all three

She said, she said
She said, she said
She said, she said
She said, she said

Even if you have, even if you need
I don’t mean to stare, we don’t have to breed
We can plant a house, we can build a tree
I don’t even care, we could have all three

She said, she said
She said, she said
She said, she said
She said, she said
She said

Said, good
