Hear a Rare Kurt Cobain Demo of Nirvana’s ‘Been a Son’

The forthcoming release of the Montage of Heck companion album will flood the Internet with a bevy of “new” old Kurt Cobain music, and today the filmmakers have shared an 80-second demo of Nirvana’s “Been a Son,” another version of which appears on Incesticide.  It’s an understandably raw and stripped-down snippet of music, but it’s a telling, intimate showcase of Cobain’s voice and process. Check it out at Rolling Stone, and look for Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings on November 13.
