Jim Carrey Praises ‘Breed’ By Nirvana, ‘One Of The Most Kick-Ass Tracks Ever In History’
Famous actor Jim Carrey revealed his daily listening habits during his latest interview with Fox 5’s film critic and reporter Kevin McCarthy. The artist credited an iconic Nirvana song by expressing his thoughts about it with some details.
Nirvana released their second studio album, ‘Nevermind’ on September 24, 1991, which became one of their most popular and commercially successful records worldwide. The album produced the band’s best hits, such as ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit,’ ‘Come As You Are,’ and ‘In Bloom,’ also fans’ favorites. However, Jim Carrey’s music taste differs from the others since his pick for the best track isn’t among those.
Kurt Cobain wrote one of the album’s tracks, ‘Breed’ in 1989, a song usually neglected by their fans. Music critics saw it as a teenage apathy and fear of the middle class. It’s not the kind of song that people say when somebody asks them about their favorite Nirvana song. Still, according to the actor, it is ‘the most kick-ass tracks ever in history’ by defining it as an underrated work overshadowed by the other hits on ‘Nevermind.’
Furthermore, Carrey went on to say that his musical taste is very crazy; he can listen to Count Basie one day or start the morning with Gregorian chants even though they are very different from each other. Then, suddenly, when he feels chaotic and masculine, he prefers Pantera or Nirvana’s ‘Breed’ due to its in-your-face style. Therefore, the Hollywood actor is open to listening to and discovering various genres, whether rock, metal, or jazz.
Carrey said in his interview that:
“When I get up in the morning, my musical taste is so all over the spectrum; it’s crazy. I can go, Count Basie, one day, I can go rap another day, and then I can go. Most mornings, I’ll wake up, grab my coffee, sit on the back porch, and listen to Gregorian chants. Because it brings the birds to life, it brings the whole world to life, and suddenly I feel like I’m not just in the body, but I’m the whole yard.
If I get into a certain mood, I need to get chaotic or crazy sometimes, something like a Pantera, which challenges the world on a masculine, in-your-face level. Or ‘Breed’ by Nirvana. ‘Breed’ is one of the greatest, unsung. It’s an unsung piece; it’s overshadowed by other hits they had, but ‘Breed’ is one of the most kick-ass tracks ever in history. It’s wonderful.”
