    Oh, lordie. Lake of Fire is one of the worst songs on Unplugged. If you’re trying to be semi-originial, I would tap School, Pay to Play, Jesus Don’t Want Me For A Sunbeam, or Sappy. And If You Must is one of their underrated songs.

    Kurt Cobain was so fucking great, and his promotion of the Meat Puppets (Lake of Fire) is proof; agreed with no. 1 that it’s kind of a sucky version, but basically it’s Kurt saying to the Kirkwood brothers: “you guys were heroes to me, I’m going to set you up for life.” (Thanks to the royalty checks.)
