“I’ve tried it,” Cobain said of “The Dreamer” in the video. “I dreamed about German shepherds and having sex with my stepfather and eating flowers and smoking potpourri….it’s really amazing, it really works.”

The interview happened at Hollywood Rock Brazil in 1993. In it, Cobain is messing around with a Taser and even pretends to shock the interviewer with it.

In addition to “The Dreamer” clip, MTV also unleashed a 38-minute unedited interview with Cobain. Parts of the interview were used to make MTV’s 1994 documentary “Nirvana: Past, Present and Future.” In the newly-released interview, Cobain discusses a wide range of issues, from his daughter Frances Bean Cobain to his chronic stomach pain.
