About this Youtube video: Nobody for sure knows what this song is about but that is how Kurt would have wanted it. But here are some guesses facts reviews about All Apologies from songfacts.com This song is similar to Nirvana s Rape Me in that it s protest against the media tramping upon people. Another theory This song was meant to be a last note to Kurt Cobain s daughter Francis Bean apologizing for not being the father he should have been. This was a highlight of Nirvana s Unplugged In New York an acoustic album recorded for an MTV special. Nirvana recorded the Unplugged session November 18 1993 and it aired almost a month later. The album was released November 1 1994 in the US 7 months after Cobain s death. In that context it sounded like a goodbye message from Cobain. On some European versions of the album there is a hidden song 20 minutes after this ends called Gallons Of Rubbing Alcohol Flow Through The Strip. Albums with the hidden track contain a sticker that says Exclusive International Bonus Track. When Nirvana recorded In Utero in February 1993 they wanted to make a raw stripped down album that took them back to their roots after the polished and pop-influenced Nevermind. However the band succumbed to pressure to have further mixing done to Heart-Shaped Box All Apologies and Pennyroyal Tea. It is rumored that the entire album was mixed and did not resemble at all what Nirvana had wanted but the 3 members of the band vehemently denied this and stated that they were very pleased with the outcome. The Christian band DC Talk sometimes cover this at concerts. They change the line Everyone is gay to Jesus is the Way. Sinead O Connor covered this on her 1994 album Universal Mother..
