Nirvana's Darkest Song

Right in the middle of Nirvana's best-selling, industry-changing album Nevermind is the song "Polly". With just Kurt Cobain and an acoustic guitar, the song is one of the darkest in Nirvana's catalog of dark music. Based on a true story, it details the abduction, rape, and torture of a young girl — from the perspective of the rapist. Despite the song's uncomfortable subject, it's also one Nirvana's most powerful — and a testament to Cobain's willingness to confront the stark demons in society, himself, and his support for equality.
