"Sometimes I just fall asleep. I was hyperactive as a child and they gave me speed to counteract that, and it supposedly brought on the narcolepsy, because I started getting it after that. It comes and goes. I mean, if I’m lying in bed and it happens, I’ll just sleep for a few hours. It’s only happened in the middle of a live show a couple of times. I just passed out. I can wake up within a couple of seconds. I’ve fallen down a lot of times." - Kurt Cobain, 1992.
“You Know You’re Right" was written in 1993, making it one of the last known Kurt Cobain compositions. A studio version of the song was recorded at Nirvana’s final session, on January 30, 1994, at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle, Washington, but remained locked away from fans for years following Cobain’s death. This recording become the object of much legal wrangling between Courtney Love and surviving Nirvana bandmates Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. The song was eventually released as a promo single in 2002.
The song was performed by Hole as “You’ve Got No Right” during their MTV Unplugged appearance on February 14, 1995. The band’s lead singer and Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love, introduced it as “a song that Kurt wrote; the last song, almost.”
