Kurt Cobain Sings About Not Selling Records & Smoking Hash In New Punk Rocker

Edited by Brett Buchanan

Kurt Cobain’s Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings will be released next month, and it features an unreleased song called “Rehash.” “Rehash” sounds like Henry Rollins era Black Flag thrash-style with a heavy guitar riff and heavy screams, while the chorus (Rehash, Rehash) doesn’t sound at all like Cobain’s regular vocals. It’s clearly an in-development idea, as Cobain recites where he wants the solo, by orally saying: “Solo” as he plays the riff, over and over again. While the sound quality makes it hard to guarantee that all of these lyrics are correct, this is my stab at them from what I heard, with some missing.

“Rehash” lyrics:

I tried out for the high school band
then I tried to join the crowd
My records didn’t sell
Now I keep them very healthy in my cellar what do you want?
????
????
????
????

Chorus:

Rehash x 15

Post Chorus/ Bridge( ?) :

Playin’ in a Bar Band
Playin in a bar band
Playin in a bar band
Thank God I’m not bland
Playin in a bar band
playing in a bar band
Thank God I’m not bland
Playin’ in a bar band

Rehash x 15
OH!!!

Kurt’s speaking voice: “Solo”

“Solo”

“Solo”
“Solo”
“Solo”

“Chorus”
“Chorus”

Rehash x13
“Smoke hash”

About Osty Gale

A first year student attending Cape Breton University, working towards his BA in Journalism, Osty has publications in The New Waterford Community Press as well as The Caper Times, the local university paper. He loves writing, reporting, and interviewing. Osty worked on a committee for the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (C.B.R.M), to help bring back youth events in the area. (Youth events were cancelled for a period of time because of excessive violence and underage drinking.) The committee presented the solution to council on July 5, 2012. Fun facts: I was one pound 5 ounces when I was born. Two short stories I wrote were featured in a book called “Friends Forever.” “Ki-Na Na”, a song I wrote, was aired at the local station “The Coast” 89.7 in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. I like a vast array of music from American folk music all the way up the spectrum to heavy metal music.

    Boy, these songs are going to be lost gems! You can tell Kurt put his heart and soul into this holy grail of his bottomless talent.

    “Playin’ in a bar band…playin’ in a bar band…OH!!!…Solo…Solo…Solo…Chorus…Solo!…Rehash! Rehash! Rehash! Smoke Hash!”

    Eat your heart out, ‘Tourettes’. Thank God we have Frances to understand how badly these torch songs need to be heard. And at a reasonable price, no less.

    • Corndog

      I’m thinking she needs the money so her mom can continue to pay for the silence of the veritable army that must have been required to cover up Cobain’s suicide. Sorry, i mean’t murder. So easy to mix those two up…

      • Felonious Punk

        Right? I mean, all the police and forensic evidence has CLEARLY proven that a murder took place in that greenhouse ???? I guess they’re just waiting until the 25th anniversary to roll out the super deluxe version prosecution case.

    • JohnnyCaustic

      Whereas you remain anonymous.

      • Felonious Punk

        It’s the Internet, you doofus. That’s the ENTIRE point. All you’re doing here is speaking for yourself, as well.

        • JohnnyCaustic

          No, the ‘entire’ point of the internet was not so people could comment anonymously as you appear to think. I say ‘appear’ because I can’t tell: you are anonymous.

          • Felonious Punk

            So “Johnny Caustic” is your real name then? You’re not posting anonymously in any way, shape or form?

            I can live with being anonymous. That’s the whole point of the Internet.

      those lyrics are what are called “fill in” lyrics to put a melody to the chords and song writing he was developing. I am sure you are not a musician so would be clueless to that fact. that is why although interesting to hear more from the genius known as Kurt Cobain, these are rough drafts and unfinished songs being put out to the world, not finished products. I am just a bit leery that some money grubbing hands are making some side cash on his legacy. Not only that but these were recorded in his last months, when he was being spiritually beat down by that evil witch. his mind was gone, he was trying to get clean from H and get away from the witch. all three song lyrics say something, especially the first two, this third song lyrics are clearly “fill in” material for melody to accompany chords as the song was forming. DO NOT INSULT HIS ARTISTIC GENIUS OF WHICH YOU HAVE NONE.

      • pixiestix

        Well said. I agree.

        • Felonious Punk

          Haha I agree, too: you Cobain murder conspiracy trolls are a bunch of misguided morons.

      • Felonious Punk

        Lololololol you Cobain fanatics sure get your Nirvana underoos in a twist over this stuff, huh? Apparently in your blind rage, you missed the sarcasm AND the intent of my remark. It’s obviously NOT directed at Kurt’s talent and even more obviously of Frances’ and UMG’s decision to make some blood money off of Kurt’s bedroom demos.

        But thank you showing your hand as a complete tool by explaining things that are already painfully obvious.

        • JohnnyCaustic

          We missed your sarcasm because you’re anonymous.

          • Felonious Punk

            How did you know it was sarcasm then?

    • cb

      I find it no coincidence that your avatar is a pink teddy bear.

      • Corndog

        What exactly is that supposed to mean? Think carefully about your response buddy. You can spout your whack job conspiracy shit all you like, but if you start getting personal with other regular posters then i’m going to blacklist your ass.

        • Felonious Punk

          No need for that. I mean, do what you see fit of course, but the Cobain murder conspiracy squad never hang around for longer than a day or two anyway. It’s much more entertaining to just hand them their ass on a platter and send them scampering off of their own volition.

          • Corndog

            That was only a warning. I’ve just banned that fellowwarrior knob, and one a day is my limit:)

          • Felonious Punk

            LoL more like Fallenwarrior now

          • http://eatdickcunt.com Rick

            You guys are cancer

      • Felonious Punk

        And your point is?

  • Felonious Punk

    Almost forgot…here’s my most hilarious Kurt Cobain joke yet…

    Q: What was Kurt’s last wish before he killed himself?

    A: He didn’t kill himself. He was murdered, you idiot.

    • Corndog

      Man, you’re on fire:)

    • cb

      your Kurt death jokes will earn you some bad karma.

      • Felonious Punk

        Already been there and done that, hoss. Why don’t you just let me go to hell in my own way?

    • cb

      yeah, you have no life, every article (3 articles thus far) on the songs coming out on this MOH release you post your stupid, callous idiotic posts about a man that was murdered.

      • Corndog

        Except he wasn’t murdered. He shot himself in the face.

        • cb

          you have no critical thinking and analysis abilities. all evidence shows he was set up and murdered. you are about something else as to why you hold that smoke and mirrors LIE. Kurt was murdered because he wanted a divorce. trust me, I read and researched EVERYTHING about this subject. I am wagering to bet you have not and hold the tired world view that it was suicide. it was murder and we know who was the one to make the phone calls and who was coerced to do it. connect the God damned dots man, think man. Jesus Christ ppl are so dense about this.

          • Corndog

            Wow, you got me. How dense we all must be to, you know, go with the findings of the professional law enforcement and medical folks instead of putting all our faith in an internet conspiracy theorist. Oh but somehow Courtney was in control of the entire police force, the medical responders, the coroner (her buddy no less) the district attorney, probably hundreds of people, all under her control…..for some unbeknownst reason and still under her control as they’re still keeping her secret to this day. Obviously reading a bunch of stuff online designed to support your crazy conspiracy theory makes your opinion much more reliable than theirs. Clearly you’re the expert, not them…..

            Do you even hear yourself? Let it go. He killed himself. Get over it. He was not the messiah. He was a troubled junkie that blew his head off and abandoned his daughter.

            Did you know we didn’t really land on the moon either?

          • Felonious Punk

            Well said. I completely agree!

          • Go Hiomlán Mandelbrotmenge Imi

            Well spoken. Maybe the should read that one instead: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias

          • Corndog

            Are you saying that i’m doing that, or the other guy is?

          • Go Hiomlán Mandelbrotmenge Imi

            That “cb” guy should read it. The one who thinks Courtney Love is some kind of magic Witch that was able to control everyone involved in KC’s life and was able to figure out a complex plot to have him killed. Courtney, she is sometimes barely able to walk (but I still find her cool). And what kind of plane is it to geht Kurt Cobain to fly to LA, then let him fly back, then have someone give him drugs and shoot him and then hiring a private investigator to find him? Nothing about the murder theory makes any sense at all.

            And hey, I believe Tom Grant is a greedy old guy who never got over the fact that he was not able to track down one of the most famous persons of the western hemisphere for 6 days in which he killed himself. It must hurt him that he was even in the house, right next to the greenhouse and did manage to find anything or anyone. An he is a greedy asshole.

          • Corndog

            Ok, thanks for clarifying:)

          • Felonious Punk

            “Jesus Christ ppl are so dense about this.”

            Speaking for yourself, obviously.

      • pixiestix

        My thoughts exactly.

        • Felonious Punk

          Pixiesticks + cb = the same poster, no doubt ????

          cb: Cobain was murdered!

          Pixiesticks: I agree!

          cb: If you don’t agree with my opinions, you people are dense!

          pixiesticks: I agree! My thoughts exactly!

          cb: Pee pee poo poo

          Pixiesticks: Yes! Most definitely pee pee poo poo!

          Booooring. I’ll bet your tinfoil hats had a lot of creativity put into them tho

          • pixiestix

            Haha what a massive douche you are. But I’m sure you’ve heard that more than a time or two in your life. Are you stroking out right now? I bet your blood pressure is off the charts. Hey, here’s an idea, maybe get a job, that way you’re not a 50 year old man playing around on the internet all day everyday????

          • Felonious Punk

            Nope, never been called that before. You’re definitely the first!

            And what’s wrong with 50 year old men who post on the Internet? You’re telling me you’ll never get there one day? I can’t see how that’s any worse than being some conspiracy moron who makes multiple Discus handles just to agree with himself

          • pixiestix

            What’s wrong with that is, a person in their 50’s should be above internet shit-talking to people you don’t even know just because their opinions are different from yours. And I have only one disqus handle, and this is it. So according to you, if more than one person disagrees with you, it must be the same person with multiple handles? Don’t flatter yourself. In fact, if you’re so quick to think that of other people, you are probably the one who has multiple handles.

          • Felonious Punk

            Thank goodness I’m nowhere even close to 50 then. So I wouldn’t cry foul about the multiple username jab if you’re going to go right for the putdown about a person’s age

            And speaking of which, aren’t you a little old to be duped by bogus conspiracy theories and then waste god knows how much time online trying to say that forensic evidence and police investigations are wrong while some crack shot theory from an inept private eye is correct?

      • Felonious Punk

        Except he wasn’t murdered. He shot himself. In the face. With a shotgun.

        And do you know what was the last thing Kurt said before he shot himself?

        “Heads up!”
