Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some tracks can have several thousand ratings)

This track is rated in the top 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 87.7/100, a mean average of 86.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.9/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.0.

Irony doesn't come across clearly in song. Cobain was disappointed that Polly and About a Girl were not understood. So he wrote this as a blatant anti rape song, but these base repetitive lyrics are still open to interpretation.
Also the opening and other parts of the track owe too much to 'Smells', for it to be considered anything other than a 'good' Nirvana standard.
The earlier comment on McDonald's is thought provoking but probably not correct. Site rules apply

I used to think this was the best song on the album, until I discovered Serve The Servants and Very Ape. Either way, this is one awesome song.
