I'll be glad to proclaim:  this must have been ahead of its time, because it has never sounded so good to me as it does now. Powerful!

Not really.  Perhaps it's you who underrates them.

Humour because there should be no praise or adoration for anyone who takes their own life.   'tis a chickens way out and just causes great pain to everyone else.    I understand depression more than I'd like to.

A mistake, this song was all about wall of sound guitars and screaming angst...

I think Kurt was more than that but got overhyped partly because he was a symbol of a generation. No idea if that role played with his artistic choices as it did with Elvis and John Lennon. 

I don't know if musical styles like grunge and punk that that deliberately use a messy, low-fi sound age well. It'd be interesting to see how Kurt's music would have evolved if he hadn't killed himself.

I have to admit that at the time, my friends and I were disappointed with this phase compared to the previous one. I liked it, but it was rather bleak and too dark; maybe too deeply self-involved, to the point of being an ugly portrait of the tortured artist. However, it has aged so well!

This was the first CD I purchased.  I think I was 12 or 13 years old.  Great collection of songs.

I've always thought that one of the measures of a good song is if it still holds up when done in a different style.  This one does, as well as everything from this album.  Love 'em or hate 'em as you will, but I'm not embarrassed to say that this is fantastic. 
 
I couldn't agree more. This was the first version of this song that I heard, and I've loved it ever since. Never gets old. It's a nugget of songwriting and performing perfection. I like the original amped-up version of this song too, but this unplugged version really trumps it.
