This song was originally written and recorded by Dave Grohl in 1990. It appeared as "Color Pictures of a Marigold" on his 1992 release Pocketwatch
, an out of print cassette on the Simple Machines label. He used the band name Late!
Nirvana recorded another version of the song, which would end up as the b-side on the "Heart-Shaped Box
, in 1993 during the In Utero
sessions. Grohl sang vocals and played drums.
