The performance of the band's 1992 hit single "Lithium" was previously released on the home video Live! Tonight! Sold Out!! in 1994. The performance of "Tourette's" was previously released on the live compilation From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah in 1996.
Sliver: The Best of the Box was the fifth Nirvana album to be released following the death of lead singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain in April 1994. It contains 19 tracks pulled from the band's 2004 box set, With the Lights Out, as well as three previously unreleased recordings: "Spank Thru," from the 1985 "Fecal Matter" demo, a 1990 studio recording of "Sappy", and a 1991 boombox demo of "Come as You Are". The Fecal Matter version of "Spank Thru" is arguably the most historically significant of the previously unreleased tracks, since it was apparently the recording which convinced Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic to form a band with Cobain.
With the Lights Out is a rarities box set, containing 3 CDs and 1 DVD, from the American grunge band Nirvana. It was released in November 2004. The title refers to the line "with the lights out, it's less dangerous" from the successful "Smells Like Teen Spirit" single. "With the Lights Out" set a new record for the most sells in a single week of any box set, with 105,760 units sold. As of 2007, "With the Lights Out" has sold over 925,000 units in the United States alone, according to Nielson SoundScan . "With the Lights Out" has also been certified platinum by the R.I.A.A.
Nirvana was the third Nirvana album to be released following the death of singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain in April 1994, and the first to feature studio material. It contains the previously unreleased "You Know You're Right", a song recorded during the band's final studio session from January 1994. The album also includes a selection of the band's more popular songs, pulled mostly from 1991's Nevermind and 1993's In Utero, but also contains three pre-Nevermind songs and two songs recorded during the band's MTV Unplugged set in late 1993. Nirvana opened at #3 on the Billboard 200 and it sold more than 3,471,000 copies worldwide(except ASIA) until November of 2003. Currently, the album has sold more than 6 million copies worldwide, and has sold nearly 2.2 million copies in the U.S. alone according to Soundscan.
Four of the songs on Hormoaning are covers which had not been released previously. The remaining two songs are Nirvana originals which previously appeared as b-sides to singles for Nevermind.
"Aneurysm" and "Even in His Youth", two Nirvana originals produced and engineered by Craig Montgomery, also appear as b-sides on the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" single. This version of Aneurysm also appears on disc two of With the Lights Out and is different from the version released on Incesticide.
The other four songs are from a Peel Session, recorded for BBC Radio on October 21, 1990.
"Turnaround" (originally by Devo), "Son of a Gun" and "Molly's Lips" (originally by The Vaselines) appear on the Incesticide album.
"D-7" is a cover of The Wipers song and appears on the UK version of the "Lithium" single and later on disc 2 of With the Lights Out in 2004, the song also appeared in the "Live at Reading" album.
