Like" Yes The Raven on Facebook here http://www.facebook.com/yestheraven http://www.yestheraven.com/ ORIGINAL SONG VIDEOS HERE http://www.youtube.com/user/YesTheRaven "Come as You Are" is a song by the American grunge band Nirvana, written by frontman Kurt Cobain and released as the second single from the band's second studio album Nevermind in 1992. It was the band's second American Top 40 hit, and second UK top 10 hit, reaching number thirty-two on the Billboard Hot 100, and number nine on the UK Singles Chart. The music video for "Come as You Are" was directed by Kevin Kerslake, who drew inspiration for it from the cover artwork of Nevermind. In 2004, Rolling Stone named it at #445 on its "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list and placed it at #452 in the 2010 reissue.
"Come as You Are" was one of the few songs Nirvana recorded onto the rehearsal tape the group sent to producer Butch Vig prior to the recording of Nevermind in 1991. The group recorded the song with Vig during album sessions at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California, in early 1991. Cobain recorded his guitar solo in two takes, as well as three takes of vocals, of which the first was used. Vig then asked Cobain to double track his vocals throughout the entire song. During the harmony overdub session, Cobain accidentally sang the phrase "And I don't have a gun" too early, appearing the fourth time he sings the word "memoria" after the guitar solo. He decided to keep the mistake in the final recording. Vig sampled Cobain singing "memoria" from the middle of the song and placed it in the background of the song near the end twice.
