Unreleased Nirvana Song Leaked to Radio / Web

09-24-02 antiGUY
Los Angeles radio station KROQ got their hands on the studio version of Nirvana's “You Know You're Right” and began playing it over the air Monday night. Apparently the track was first leaked to the web and that was how the station got their hands on it. 

The song has reached an almost legendary status that is comparable to the rumored “lost last recording” of blues great Robert Johnson. It is said to be one of the last songs written by Kurt Cobain before he took his own life in 1994. A live recording of the song has been a hot item with Nirvana bootleggers but up until now the studio version of the track had been kept under wraps and was originally scheduled to appear as part of the Nirvana box-set, a collection that was ultimately nixed by Cobain’s widow Courtney Love who felt according to Launch Media that the, “Nirvana legacy would be better served by the release of a single-disc greatest-hits set before a boxed-set release.”

As we reported last week, the Nirvana greatest hits album is scheduled to be released before Christmas according to what Courtney Love sold radio shock-jock, Howard Stern. However, Launch is reporting the Interscope/Geffen has said that the inclusion of the disc on their release schedule for November 19th was a mistake and have yet to announce an official release date.
