Sulk (3:43)

Cover of The Bends

From The Bends and 7 other releases

One of Thom’s earliest creations, this song was inspired by a ruthless and unexplained killing spree conducted by a lone gunman in Hungerford, England, in 1987. Although its original concluding lyrics were “just shoot your gun,” these were changed when the song was recorded in late 1994. This was because the death of Kurt Cobain was still weighing heavily on people’s minds while the Hungerford killings were not; Thom chose to change the lyrics so that no one would think the song was about the late NIrvana leader. “Sulk” is rarely heard live: the band played it in concert a few times in 1994, even less often in 1995, and never again after that.
