Members of Nirvana

Date/year: 1993
Musician: Nirvana
Genre: Grunge
Why I like this song: This song is an anti-rapping from the character's point of view as he was being "rape" by the media during his period as a singer. The song however is about a guy who was ended up in jail and being raped after he raped a girl. This song speaks out the perspective of a raped victim who call out for the anti-raping movement, and that has inspired me to like the song.
