In Utero – Nirvana Disco Completo

Tras mucho tiempo sin analizar discos, vuelvo a relanzar la sección para ver si tiene acogida o no.

El disco que hoy nos ocupa definió a Nirvana como el grupo que fue, dando un duro golpe a la industria musical del momento, los cuales esperaban y deseaban hacer dinero con aquella nueva banda.
Con este disco, el grupo se reivindicó y dejo claro a la industria que no volverían a olvidar sus orígenes.

Hoy voy a hablar de un álbum que levantó polémica y ampollas en distintos focos de la sociedad, es un disco rudo pero directo, que volvió a elevar a la banda a lo más alto si, pero que esta vez no se olvido de sus primeros seguidores.

El álbum incluye una foto de un ángel anatómico embarazado en la portada (con alas de ángel agregadas posteriormente por Cobain), un collage de flores, fetos plásticos y caparazones de tortuga en la contraportada, junto con varios símbolos griegos de la fertilidad esparcidos en los 4 extremos de la contraportada.

     – Introducción

In Utero fue lanzado al mercado en 1993, en septiembre. Su anterior disco, el segundo tras su debut con Bleach fue un auténtico éxito mundial tanto en ventas como en ganancias, convirtiendo a los componentes de la banda en millonarios en pocos días, llegando a vender más de 10 millones de copias, un éxito rotundo en aquella época.

Sin embargo, la banda fue muy criticada por sus primeros seguidores, amantes del Nirvana inicial y no del de Nevermind, acusándoles de haber abandonado sus orígenes en pos de mayores ganancias y vendiéndose a la industria.

Tras esto la banda decide volver a sus orígenes y hacer caso a sus mayores seguidores, fruto de esto surge In Utero, disco que también alcanzó el éxito. Con este trabajo, Nirvana da la espalda a la industria, que ya trataba de aprovecharse de ellos y se frotaba las amnos viendo el provecho que podían obtener, y recompensa a sus mayores fans.

El disco levantó gran revuelo y repercusión por la acidez de sus letras y su crítica malinterpretasa según Cobain, el cual se definía: "Estoy cansado de tomarme esta banda tan seriamente y de que la gente intente leer entre líneas. Básicamente nuestras canciones son sobre confusión, odio a mí mismo y el no querer vivir; creo que es lo más apropiado…´

Pero el disco desató las iras de las feministas por la canción Rape Me (Viólame) , de la cual Cobain decía que era una crítica a la violencia. Todo ese revuelo convirtió a Cobain en un genio incomprendido, según se dice, aunque con su posterior disco se demostró que al final no queda otro remedio que seguir a la industria.

Lejos de tantas contradiciones, recomiendo In Utero, un gran disco de una gran banda.

– Canciones del disco

1) Serve The Servants

Teenage angst has paid off well 
Now I’m bored and old 
Self-Appointed judges judge 
More than they have sold 

If she floats than she is not 
A witch like we had thought 
A down payment on another 
One at salem’s lot 

Serve the servants – Oh no 
That legendary divorce is such a bore 

As my bones grew they did hurt 
They hurt really bad 
I tried hard to have a father 

But instead I had a dad 

I just want you to know that I 
Don’t hate you anymore 
there is nothing I could say 
that I haven’t thought before 

Serve the servants – oh no 
That legendary divorce is such a bore.


2) Scentless Apprentice

Like most babies smell like butter 
his smell smelled like no other 
he was born scentless and senseless 
he was born a scentless apprentice 

Go away – get away, get away, get a-way 
every wet nurse refused to feed him 
electrolytes smell like semen 

I promise not to sell your perfumed secrets 
there are countless formulas for pressing flowers 

I lie in the soll and fertilize mushrooms 
Leaking out gas fumes are made into perfume 

You can’t fire me because I quit 
Throw me in the fire and I won’t throw a fit.

3) Heart-Shaped Box


She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak 
I’ve been locked inside your Heart-Shaped box for a week 
I was drawn into your magnet tar pit trap 
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn back 

Hey 
Wait 
I’ve got a new conplaint 
Forever in debt to your priceless advice 
Hate 
Haight 
I’ve got a new complaint 
Forever in debt to your prieless advice 
Hey 
Wait 
I’ve got a new complaint 
Forever in debt to your priceless advice 

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet 
Cut myself angel’s hair and baby’s breath 
Broken hymen of your highness I’m left black 
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

4) Rape Me


Rape me 
Rape me my friend, 
Rape me, 
Rape me again. 

I’m not the only one 

Hate me, 
Do it, and do it again. 

Waste me, 
Rape me, my friend. 

My favorite inside source, 
I’ll kiss your open sores, 
Appreciate your concern 
You’ll always, stink, and burn.

5) Farmer Will Have Her Revenge


It’s so relieving to know that you’re leaving as soon as you get paid 
It’s so relaxing to hear you’re asking wherever you get your way 
I’s so soothing to know that you’ll sue me 
This is starting to sound the same 
I miss the comfort in being sad 

In her false withness, we hope you’re still with us 
To see if they gloar or drown 
Our favorite paitent, A display of patience, 
Disease-covered Puget Sound 
She’ll come back as fire, to burn all the liars, 
And leave a blanket of ash on the ground.

6) Dumb


I’m not like them 
But I can pretend 
The sun is gone 
But I have a light 
The day is done 
But I’m having fun 

I think I’m dumb 
or maybe just happy 
Think I’m just happy 
my heart is broke 
But I have some glue 
help me inhale 
And mend it with you 
We’ll float around] 
And hang out on clouds 
Then we’ll come down 
And I have a hangover…Have a hangover 

Skin the sun 
Fall asleep 
Wish away 
The soul is cheap 
Lesson learnedd 
Wish me luck 
Soothe the burn 
Wake me up.

7) Very Ape


I am buried up to my neck in 
Contradictionary lies 
I take pride as the kind of illiterature 
I’m very ape and very nice 

If you ever need anything please don’t hesitate 
to ask someone else first 
I’m too busy acting like I’m not naive. 
I’ve seen it all I was here first 

Out of the ground 
Into the sky 
Out of the sky 
Into the dirt.

8) Milk It


I am my own parasite 

I don’t need a host to live 
We feed off of each other 
We can share our endorphns 

Doll steak, test meat 

I own my own pet virus 
I get to pet and name her 
Her milk is my shit 
My shit is her milk 

Doll steak, test meat 

Look on the bright side is suicide 
Lost eyesight I’m on your side 
Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing 
Lack of iron and/or sleeping 
Protector of the kennel 
Ecto-plasma 
Ecto-Skeletal 
Obituary birthday 
Your scent is still here in my place of recovery.

9) Pennyroyal Tea


I’m on my time with everyone 
I have very bad posture 
Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea 
Distill the life that’s inside of me 
Sit and drink Pennyroyal tea 
I’m anem
ic royalty 
Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld 
So I can sigh enternally 
I’m so tired I can’t sleep 
I’m a liar and a thief 

Sit and drink pennyroyal Tea 
I’m anemic royalty 
I’m on warm milk and laxatives 
Cherry-flavored antacids.

10) Radio Friendly Unit Shifter

Use just once and destroy 
Invasion of our piracy 
Afterbirth of a nation 
Starve without your skeleton key 

I love you for what I am not 
I do not want what I have got 
A blanket acne’ed with ciggarette burns 
Speak at once while taking turns 
Second-rate third defree burns 

What is wrong with me 
What is what I need 
What do I think I think 

This had nothing to do with what you think 
If you ever think at all 
Bi-polar opposites attract 
All of a sudden my water broke 

Hate, hate your enemies 
Save, save your friends 
Find, find your place 
Speak, speak the truth.


11) Tourettes´s


May day, every day, my day 
Could’ve had a heart attack, my heart 
We don’t know anything, my heart. 
We all want something fair, my heart. 
Hey! 
Hey! 
Heyyyyyyy! Heyyyyy! Heyyyyy! 
Out of town, out of sight (fire), is my heart. 
Queen of lies, today, my heart 
One more on the phone, my heart 
One more at the door of my heart. 
Hey! 
Hey! 
Heyyyyyyyyyyy! 

Mean heart, cold heart, cold heart, cold heart 
Cold heart, cold heart, cold heart, cold heart — uhhhhhhh! 

Moderate Rock… 
It’s your enemy, no way! 
Get out all the time of my heart 
There’s no enemy in my heart 
Well I’m sick–a path in my heart (–of what I’ve found in my heart) 
All the time I’ve been fucked–it’s my heart 
We’re all also dead in my heart 
Oh no! It’s the fault of my heart 
Oh no! It’s the fault of my heart 
We are…Tourette.

12) All Apologies


What else should I be 
All apologies 
What else should I say 
Everyone is gay 
What else could I write 
I don’t have the right 
What else should I be 
All apologies 

In the sun 
In the sun I feed as one 
In the sun 
In the sun 
I’m married 
buried 

I wish I was like you 
Easily amused 
Find my nest of salt 
Everything is my fault 
I’ll take all the blame 
Aqua seafoam shame 
Sunburn with freezerburn 
Choking on the ashes of her enemy 
All in all we all are.

13) Gallons of Rubbing Alcohol Flow..


It hurts when you have to press that dull little thing 
that you’re only supposed to use once and then discard. 
Where do you put it? In the garbage can, my honest friend. 
My shyness, pet her flow. 

She’s only been five months late, 
even though we haven’t had sex for a week. 

A mil a day, a mil, I say. (meal) 
And my heart’s made my…. 

Somebody else already used the word aurora borealis. 
She was tied up in chains, and Sam had helped her in the freezer. 

She’s only five weeks late, 
and I haven’t had a date forever.. . 
ever…ever…forever! 

Wish I had more…more opportunity, 
more chances to remember some things 
so I couldn’t have so much pressure on my… 
on my…on my, um…ah, on my…um…um…head. 

We’d have so much more diversity, 
and so much more input, so much more creative flow, 
if we had someone in school, a (GIT)… 

GIT…geeks…in…town. 
Ha!…Come on, Dave, think of one… 
(Dave: inaudible) 
It should be GIC, geeks with Charvels 
No, GWC 

Fuck, man, this is a waste of time! 
(laughs) One more solo? Yeahhhhhhhhh! Yeaaaahhhhh! 

You’re personally responsible for… 
the entire strip…to be washed away…. 
cleansed…as if gallons of, um, rubbing alcohol 
flowed through the strip and were set on fire . 

It didn’t just singe the hair, it made it straight. 

And then Perry Ellis came along with his broom, 
and his…silk… 
and he…he erected a beautiful city… 
a city of stars.

Hasta aquí el aporte de hoy, espero que lo hayáis disfrutado.
