In 1990, before Kurt Cobain hit it big with his band, Nirvana, he was a struggling, starving musician. One of his many stabs at fame was penning a theme song for the famous cartoon, Ren and Stimpy.

Cobain recorded the song on the cheap but felt proud of it. Studio executives at Nickelodeon heard the song, thought it was awful, and then threw it out. After Nirvana had become famous with their 1991 album, Nevermind, the executives considered this decision to be a mistake.

While it has been confirmed that a couple of copies may still exist, the song has never found its way as a release to the general public. The version Nickelodeon had was trashed, so none of the executives holds a copy. Cobain's estate is yet to comment on the matter. Many Ren and Stimpy fans who are also Nirvana fans are saddened by this.

I'm pretty sure this is fake, considering that every source only points to Billy West and no one else. If it were true, why hasn't anyone come forward to verify it by now? Even John K hasn't said anything regarding this subject.

maybe, but it's interesting to speculate.

Perhaps an audio copy still exists somewhere among Mr. Cobain's belongings, but the holders of his effects have decided not to comment on it to preserve his wishes.

I honestly think Cobain wanted to keep it secret once it got rejected by Nickelodeon. I guess once he died, his family members kept its existence under wraps.
