The first Nirvana track to be licensed for commercial use is 1991’s ‘Breed’.

The track from the band’s breakthrough album ‘Nevermind’ is to feature in an advert for TelCo in Austria, in the opening scene of new movie ‘Shoot Em Up’ and in sports videogame ‘Major League Baseball 2K7’.

The commercial use of the song comes about after Courtney Love sold 25% of her stake in the Nirvana catalogue to Primary Wave Music Publishing last year.

Nirvana frontman, and the song’s writer, Kurt Cobain originally said the song was about “Getting into Middle America. Marrying at age 18, getting pregnant, stuck with a baby – and not wanting it.”
