RAPE ME - Nirvana Cover (Acapella)

in dsound •  last year

Those who know me well know that I grew up living off of music. Bands like Nirvana were gods to me. I remember when I was 14 years old, and where I was when I heard the news flashing all over MTV that Lead singer Kurt Cobain had committed suicide. I was absolutely crushed. I never could have imagined at the time I would be living my dream one day as a Singer and Songwriter myself, or how much later on down the road just how much his music would effect me and shape me in certain ways. A few years into my journey as a singer songwriter and collaborative recording artist I had been really getting in some tough understandings of how the music industry worked and how people were gonna start treating you soon as you starting trying to chase the true discovery of yourself. I have faced rejection over and over and watched dreams fall right into the dirt many times, I have been taken advantage of and used for my kindness, and my free spirited nature. I been misled and made to believe I was fucked up and broken. Even though i still live in heavy moments of the stale of things past, I know more than ever who I am and what I am and am not willing to do. The idea of success from fame and fortune can be a poison to an artist. Music is my journey this is who I am and nothing will take that away as long as I dont let it. I will make music now and for the rest of my days. I am blessed to live in an age where I can share my talents and my heart more freely than ever before. I covered this song and wanted to do it Acapella with a multi layer vocal to pull out the emotion of the track.

the meaning of this for me was to say, I finally understand something I didnt before, something I didnt understand when I was young. Today I am aware. I am aware of myself and I am aware of what many people want from me, I am aware of my abilities and my short comings, and I am no longer a person who will allow people to use me for there own ends, then try to pull me down when I wont comply.
This song is about the media and chatterous tongues! yes I made up the word chatterous!!

"Rape Me" is a song by American rock band Nirvana, written by frontman Kurt Cobain. The song was released as the second single from Nirvana's third album In Utero in 1993, packaged as a double A-side along with "All Apologies". The single reached number 32 on the UK Singles Chart.

awesome love all the reverb and echoes like a stadium of harmony and voices pretty sik

As you mentioned "Kurt Cobain had committed suicide." What was the reason of suicide? Professional life is very challenging and particularly for artists because people are jealous. You will be more famous in near future. Thanks for your support to us. I really appreciates your work and your kind nature.

That is my favorite song from Nirvana. And I'm sure I'm not the only one :)!

NIRWANA... beautifull music.. and my favorite grup band.

Yes many music artists sell out for fame and success. It is enticing when you are young. In my 20's I could see that side of the music business and how cut throat it was. For some it is a drug. You get taken advantage of by the power hungry money makers and compromises are made. It becomes a money driven business and the songwriter/ musician is a mere pawn at each beckon call of their ruler. Their values, beliefs and music itself gets raped. Artistic credibility gets shoved to the curb for record sales and the musician only walks away with a small token of their real worth. Sad but true. I am proud that you did not resort or compromise what you hold dear and true. values and music artistry should trump any money motivator that is dangled in the attempted rape of the music or musician. Again thanks for sounding the alarm as Kurt Cobain did. He i s no longer able to sound that alarm as he is no linger with us. You are and you have done it admirably. Good song and great post!
