Nirvana: Rape Me
Tuning: Drop "D" (D A D G B E)
Tabbed By: RHCPfan33
Tab Accuracy: 100%

This is one of Nirvana's greatest songs in the world.  Kurt Cobain was a genius to not
only create, like, 11 or 12 hits, but to invent an entire new type of music (grunge)
takes love, determination, and pain.

First off, Kurt did not invent grunge, there were many so called "grunge" bands before NIRVANA. Secondly, grunge is not a type of music, its a label MTV created to classify a general music category that basically consisted of bands coming out of Seattle.

Kurt is a musical genius though and his music deserves much more credit than it gets.

^ Idiot No NIRVANA didn't create grunge, yes there were grunge bands before NIRVANA. A bunch of bands that are considered as grunge weren't from seattle if you want to put it like that, punk and every other sub genre for rock such as punk metal screamo etc.. FUCKING HORRIBLE SHITTY ASS TAB!!!

Kurt is a musical genieous.
