The song title refers to Tourette syndrome, a neurological disorder associated with tics like blinking, grimacing, sniffing and throat cleaning. In some cases, the tics can be inappropriate language; those cases are rare, but are often the focus of media attention.
Nirvana revealed this song to the public when they played it at the Reading Festival in Reading, England in 1992.
The song was initially titled "The Eagles Has Landed."
