-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Classic b-side track purportedly about Kurt Cobain's childhood cross dressing habit.
Either that, or Courtney's anthem for gay guys and drag queens, or maybe it's both.
Regardless, this song is really easy to play, but the deal is that I think the tabs on
here have the main riff slightly off. I've seen this played live and it looks like Riff 
B is
played most often, though you can sort of work your way around playing this several
different ways. This sounds more correct to me, though. There are two guitars, Courtney
would probably be playing Riff A clean, and Eric would come in with Riff B distorted. 
Not sure if the bridge is entirely correct, but it sounds close.
