Using a chorus pedal to create an "underwater" guitar effect (also heard on 'Teen Spirit'), "Come As You Are" is an amphibious song, emerging slowly from a submerged state and surging toward its final chorus like some kind of ethereal swamp creature with a waterproof power amp. Directed by Kevin Kerslake, the video conjures that sound with an amniotic wash of lush, solarized images: layer upon layer of translucent impressions (of the band, of cells dividing, of an occasionally bipedal dog in a megaphone collar). After the sewage-toned palette and tiny $30,000 budget for 'Teen Spirit,' this was something far more lovely, more inscrutable, and more handsomely funded, to judge from the untold gallons of water coursing through the soundstage and the massive chandelier that Cobain swings around on. (Don't miss the cat watching the goldfish bowl around 3:21.)
