Grunge rock alternative Nirvana alternative rock


"Dumb" is a song by American rock band Nirvana. It is the sixth song on the band's third studio album In Utero, released in 1993. Kurt Cobain wrote "Dumb" in the summer of 1990 after he had begun to follow some of his own poppier instincts. Cobain debuted the song for Calvin Johnson of K Records on KAOS (FM) in the same year. The first version to be officially released was on the In Utero album in 1993 and Cobain said that he did not – as had been rumoured - want to drive fans of the Nevermind album away from the band with In Utero: "Let’s face it, we already sold out two and a half years ago. There’s no sense in trying to redeem yourself by putting out an abrasive album and pretending you’re a punk rocker again". Cobain also said of the song that using the word "happy" was a nice twist on the negative stuff that they had done before and that he wished he could have written more songs like “Dumb” and “All Apologies” on the other albums. Michael Azerrad in his Story of Nirvana described "Dumb" as "Beatlesque". The song was ranked at number 39 on WHFS's top 100 played songs of 1994, number 41 on KROQ-FM’s top 100 played songs of 1994, number 51 on Q101's top 100 played songs of 1994, and number 82 on 91X's top 100 played songs of 1994. The song was subsequently released on Nirvana’s two hits compilations, Nirvana in 2002 and Icon in 2010.

Dumb - Nirvana

Dumb

I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
And I have a light
The day is done
And I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Maybe just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy

My heart is broke
And I have some glue
Help me inhale
Mend it with you
We'll float around
Hang out on clouds
Then we'll come down
Have a hangover
Have a hangover
Have a hangover
Have a hangover

Skin the sun
Fall asleep
Wish away
Soul is cheap
Lesson learned
Wish me luck
Soothe the burn
Wake me up

I'm not like them
And I can pretend
The sun is gone
And I have a light
The day is done
And I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Maybe just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy

I think I'm dumb (x12)
