Retro Mixtape: Best of Non-Single Nirvana

Hey everyone, I've had a ridiculously busy day today, I was going to write my next album review, which is the soundtrack to the second series of True Blood, but my brain is nearly as exhausted as my body.

I have however just dug up another mixtape I did a good 4 years ago, this was a band mixtape, for Nirvana. A Mixtape is a playlist of a certain genre, band or era. The list is generally 80 minutes long, the same length of a blank CD, with further recommendations if some of the songs aren't to your taste. Remember kids, downloading is wrong! We all know of Nirvana's great singles, but they did some great work on all of their albums, which in some cases are actually better than their singles. I collected my favourite non-single Nirvana tracks and came up with this list. Remember this was 4 years ago, not that I'd change much of it now if I did it again anyway.
  1. Territorial Pissings (Nevermind)
  2. Very Ape (In Utero)
  3. Big Cheese (Bleach)
  4. Turnaround (Incesticide)
  5. Breed (Nevermind)
  6. Floyd the Barber (Bleach)
  7. Pennyroyal Tea (In Utero)
  8. Stay Away (Nevermind)
  9. Aneurysm (Incesticide)
  10. Serve the Servants (In Utero)
  11. Drain You (Nevermind)
  12. Negative Creep (Bleach)
  13. Dive (Incesticide)
  14. On a Plain (Nevermind)
  15. Radio Friendly Unit Shifter (In Utero)
  16. Downer (Bleach)
  17. Lounge Act (Nevermind)
  18. Scentless Apprentice (In Utero)
  19. Love Buzz (Bleach)
  20. Hairspray Queen (Incesticide)
  21. Milk It (In Utero)
  22. Endless Nameless (Nevermind) 
I usually have 5 extra songs that you can use as alternatives for the mixtape but for this list I've lost it unfortunately. Do you want to suggest me a mixtape theme? Let me know what you're interested in and I'll think about it.
