This song is probably about yeast infections. It also could be about food poisoning or other illnesses. It was released on Incesticide, a Nirvana compilation of B-sides, outtakes and other oddities.
Anonymousthe song is about his undiagnosed stomach pain. The line “cured by injection” is hinting towards heroin as he admitted that it was the only thing that stopped the constant pain he was in.
AnonymousDefinitely one of the most disgusting Nirvana songs, lyrics-wise. Kurt seemed to be obsessed with, or at least interested in, gross bodily functions and biology.
Zero from The Abyss, NjNope, it's on Incesticide.
Kyleigh from Belleville, OnI thought "Mexican Seafood" was on "In Utero"
Zero from Nowhere, NjI'm pretty sure the lyrics on this site are wrong. I think the chorus goes "it only hurts when I, hurts when I pee/It only hurts when I, hurts when I sing" I could be wrong though, I think at this point he was either making the words up as he was singing them or writing them just before he recorded them.
John from Richmond, VaThis could be a reference to Kurt Cobain's intense and ravaging stomach disease. Mexican seafood is notorious for food poisoning.
Tyler from Toronto, CanadaIncesticide is the best album.^^ Mr.Nirvana
Andreu from Homer, NyBy far one of my favorite Nirvana songs with crazy disguisting lyrics about yes a yeast infection, but with subject matter aside an amazing tune and one of the best on Insecticide (a very underrated album)along with Beeswax and Hairspray Queen.
