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 90.5/100, a mean average of 89.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.3.

Probably an unpopular opinion here, but I think it's one of the low points of the record. Don't get me wrong, It's a good song and I like it, but I think it's place on the tracklist doesn't do it any good (it's after 4 of my fav tracks and before one of my absolute favorites as well, Polly). Also, I'm not really a fan of the "Yeah" chorus, it just feels like a very forced way to make a song catchy, as if Kurt couldn't come up with words that'd fit the song and just left it solely because of the fact that it's catchy. Anyhow, the verses are great and Kurt's vocal delivery is on point, I just think the song (and especially the chorus) pales in comparison to the tracks that preceded it and the one that comes after.

Without a doubt the best song on Nevermind and maybe in Nirvana's discography. The bass and guitar compliment each other so well throughout the entire song and the bass line in the chorus is well written. Cobain's vocals are spot on and it's as catchy as it is repetitive and is one of the highlights of that working in Nirvana's favor.

The best lyrics on the album are here! Plus, the additions of five-star production and great vocals and drumming make this the second best Nirvana song ever.
