Lake Of Fire Lyrics - Nirvana

Review The Song (65)

Where do bad folks go when they die
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
Go to a lake of fire and fry
See them again 'till the Fourth of July

I knew a lady who came from Duluth
Bitten by a dog with a rabid tooth
She went to her grave just a little too soon
flew away howling on the yellow moon

Where do bad folks go when they die
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
Go to a lake of fire and fry
See them again 'till the Fourth of July

People cry and people moan
Look for a dry place to call their home
Try to find some place to rest their bones
Of an angels and the devils try to make 'em their own

Where do bad folks go when they die
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
Go to a lake of fire and fry
See them again 'till the Fourth of July

Horror | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/11/14

The Fourth of July is the end of the world when we all wont have time to recompense our sins and will FINALLY be one with those in eternal torment. God be with those who grasp that Hell is a real place as I could hear the most hellish sounds coming from deep inside an ac unit when I was living in an old hotel, like a portal... God is the opposite of horror and this song is the sermon on the mount... If you havent experienced horror in your life... Real Horror... then your just waiting for the end. I lie, but not about this....

4th of July | Reviewer: pickscanteleport | 1/17/14

I think the 4th of July is the people and patriots that will be remembered on the contributing freedom in the America but their actions need to be spilled with blood in order to achieve the freedom that we have today thus they are considered as bad because they broke one of the ten commandments which says thou shall not kill and therefore they are on the lake of fire and every once in a while they got remembered every 4th of July, Sorry for my grammar, english is not my native language.

Good Cover | Reviewer: Alex | 8/29/13

I've heard this song once in a great while, and it's always thought-provoking. I think that's why Kurt went to the trouble of covering it with Nirvana. I have to agree with the previous review in that seeing fireworks on the fourth would be like seeing a mirror image of the lake of fire because fireworks are often shot over lakes. But still, it doesn't make a lot of sense without an explanation from the Meat Puppets or the writer, Curt Kirkwood.

the 4th of july question | Reviewer: hungariangirl | 8/1/13

I have never wondered deep enough about this line; i always thought it's just some association. You may see those, who burn in the lake of fire in the flames of the fireworks on the 4th of july.

NIRVANA | Reviewer: Krazy4Nirvana625 | 5/22/13

Ok, yes Nirvana performed it and therefore they are the singers. Obviously they gave credit to the Meat Puppets at the and so... yeah.
And People at least spell Kurt's Name right...!

Meat Puppets | Reviewer: Yo Mismo | 2/22/13

Actually The Meat Puppets were invited to play this song with Kurt at the Nirvana Unplugged. So he doesn't give credits at the end, he says "That was The Meat Puppets". They got along just right so there's no need to argue about being fair or not.

What's this line? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/18/12

I don't care who wrote the song. I just want to know what the line "See them again 'til the Fourth of July" means. Looks like they just needed to put something there, and that's all they could come up with. They're supposed to come back from the dead on the 4th? It doesn't make any sense to me. Enlighten me.

Stop Hating | Reviewer: Cody | 5/5/12

To everyone who is saying "this song is by the Meat Puppets, dont give Nirvana credit", well stop complaining. This page says "Lake of Fire Lyrics, performed by Nirvana" which is 100% correct, and Nirvana gives the Meat Puppets credit at the end of the song. So stop complaining, thanks :).

Nirvana and The Meat Puppets | Reviewer: NIRVANA4LIFE | 12/30/11

God people YES The Meat Puppets made the song and YES Nirvana did a COVER of it at MTV Unpluged Live In New York in '94 WITH The Meat Puppets. So it is NOT WRONG to post Lake of Fire by Nirvana because if you searched it on youtube the Nirvana one and The Meat Puppets one, sound DIFFERENT obviously so enough of arguing about who its by

fuck off those hate NIRVANA | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/14/11

whomsoever this lyrics may belong to, NIRVANA made it popular and he has credited their name before the song so no one is losing anything .. we all want to listen to this song sung by Curt Cobain and no one else ...RIP Curt.. we will miss you :(

Fools | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/6/11

didn't read all of the comments nirvana did a cover song of this obviously and gave credit where credit was do to the original writers how ever the fucking nirvana song kicks ass way better then meat puppets ftw get over yourself

Meat Puppets | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/14/11

Yes, this song was by The Meat Puppets, but most people know it as a Nirvana song. If they googled these lyrics and saw it listed as The Meat Puppets-Lake of Fire lyrics, people would be like "What the hell? I want a song by Nirvana!"

Not a nirvana song... | Reviewer: Unicorn horn dust | 6/26/11

This song is by the meat puppets. I'm sure other people have posted that this song was by the meat puppets. I understand that nirvana is popular but don't give them credit for something they didn't do. I'm not mad but thats kinda annoying posting it as nirvana lyrics.

Alrightt | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/10/11

So I was reading the reviews, and its a frequent question in my mind... If you don't like something why would you take the time to look it up and hate on it? Why not avoid it and hate on it from a distance? If you are really that big of a bitch to hate on someone, you seriously need help. And a life. Fuck you haters, and thank you for giving me one of the most nagging questions of my life.

Great artist | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/28/11

Although Kurt was an addict it didn't define him. Many people live with deep depression and addiction and are really wonderful people. I deal with many people who were once active drug or alcohol users. most are very intelligent kind hearted people. addiction is a disease. depression is an illness. don't blame Kurt. he was very talented. rip
