Nirvana: You Know You’re Right

“You Know You’re Right” was the last song Nirvana ever recorded (Jan 30 1994). It was released posthumously by Geffen on October 8, 2002.

In this song, Cobain uses the word “right” in four different ways. He means right as in “correct.” He means right as in “right-eye.” He means right as in “right-wing.” And finally, he means right as in “rights.”

In a 1995 interview Courtney Love Cobain seemed to echo one of the lines in “You Know You’re Right”

“There is a major guilt left behind, and he’s got to have his dignity restored, and his true self. And he could be a real grumpy bastard, but that was part of his power…

I mean, he prayed every night. He taught our daughter how to pray, and one thing… that when I would… when we would verbally pray out loud… was for him to love himself.” (Courtney Love interview with Kurt Loder 08:58-09:55)
