Nirvana - Something In the Way

Something In the Way by Nirvana Song Info

"Something in the Way" is a song by American rock band Nirvana, written by vocalist and guitarist Kurt Cobain. It is the twelfth and final song on their 1991 album "Nevermind" (not counting the secret track included on most CD editions of the album, "Endless, Nameless"). "Something in the Way" was originally believed to be based on a period when Cobain was supposedly homeless and slept underneath a bridge in his native town, Aberdeen, Washington. This myth, started by Cobain, was refuted in 2001 with the publication of the biography Heavier Than Heaven by Charles Cross, who pointed out that if Cobain really had spent nights underneath the bridge mentioned in the song, he would have been in danger of being swept away by the high tide waters of the Wishkah River. According to Heavier Than Heaven, Cobain was indeed homeless at times as a teenager, but spent this time sleeping at the houses of his friends, where he also left his possessions in cardboard boxes. He also allegedly slept in waiting rooms of hospitals in the town. However, Cobain did spend time under the bridge. In Heavier Than Heaven, both Novoselic and Kurt's sister Kim Cobain confirmed that while it was unlikely that Kurt slept there, it was a popular recreation area for local teenagers, probably including Kurt. Cobain himself suggested that the song wasn't necessarily autobiographical, telling Michael Azerrad that the song was "like if I was living under the bridge and I was dying of AIDS, if I was sick and I couldn't move and I was a total street person. That was kind of the fantasy of it". In Azzerad's 1993 biography Come as You Are: The Story of Nirvana, Cobain claimed that he used to fish from the Wishkah River, which may have inspired the lyric, 'Its okay to eat fish, 'cause they don't have any feelings'. In 2015, Rolling Stone listed the song at number five on their ranking of 102 Nirvana songs. In 2019, The Guardian placed it at number 12 in their list of Nirvana's 20 greatest songs. In 2017, to mark what would have been Kurt Cobain's 50th birthday, the Phonographic Performance Limited released a list of the top twenty most played Nirvana songs on the TV and radio in the UK in which "Something in the Way" was ranked at number seventeen. In 2020, the song was used in the trailer for "The Batman" and was also used in the film when it was released in 2022, with the song itself helping with the development of the character of Bruce Wayne in the film.

The Goat Woman: Crafty? Perhaps in more than one way... My favorite thing to make is food that sticks to your ribs, so you feel like you ate something afterwards. None of those prissy cakes from me. #char_roleplay #amwritingfantasy #WritingCommunity .


@nutnorms Someone asked me if I smoked on a dating site, in an overly direct almost rude way... so I decided to answer yes to see what the person would say. I was shocked that they were no longer interested in chatting after thinking I smoked, like I stepped on a kitten or something lol..


@SadBoyGloomyTTV Not a trap when I asked, but I guess I see now why not many responded lol. Maybe I'm the exception not the rule 😆, but when I post something like this it's because I genuinely want to know my followers better and support them in any way I can. It's also an attempt to save time..


I wonder if Ashihara was going for something here. It’s easy to take it to mean the people getting complacent, but the framing is never too critical of Border as an entire organization. Just the heads. In a way, Border provides a public good. .

@AlexBrundle I'd be VERY picky about the choice of donor car. It has to be something where the engine isn't central to the car’s character/interest. Porsche/Ferrari/Jaguar/Cobra? No way in hell. Citroën DS? Absolutely yes..

@jonathanvswan @ProjectLincoln I wonder if they will feel the same way after Kamala Harris is sworn in? Imagine Republicans' heads exploding if in 2024 she announced she's picking the electors, and the electors were voting for Hillary or AOC. Something tells me Republicans would be less keen on the idea then..

It’s the way non-Black people want to say the N-word to be down and “because it’s in a song”, but the second a Black person does something they don’t like, we’re hard R’s. Non-Black people don’t care that it sounds cool, they just want what we got, and always have..

God forbid something be fun on the side and maybe a person contributes to society in some other way outside of monetizing everything. I guess nobody should have a hobby ever because it's such a drain..

I feel like if Media Molecule were to actively differentiate play from creation in this way (or maybe something more elegant that I'm just not seeing/considering), we would not only see a rise in the number of plays each creation gets, but we'd also see a larger & more steady....

Now THIS is awesome... What a great way to utilize Mosaic Stadium in the winter months... would love to see something similar at Commonwealth Stadium. @doniveson @EdmFootballTeam #yeg .
