The freakiest video Nivana ever made. Much better when you don't have to see a little girl in a ku klux klan running around and a guy in a santa hat being crucified. Was originally Heart shaped coffin.
Instant trauma, see heart shaped box!

Song writen by Kurt Cobain of the grunge band Nirvana.

Song Meaning- Love, romance, marriage, heroin addictions, and artistic mockery and titled after a gift Kurt Cobain received from Courtney Love.
She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I was drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn back
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel's hair and baby's breath
Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can
Climb right back

A great Nirvana song

The song's name came from a heart-shaped box Love had given Cobain. However, Cobain had originally titled the song "Heart-Shaped Coffin"
I love you, here' a "Heart Shaped Box"

The song by Nirvana was through the eyes of an aborted fetus-- Or, at least, that is one of the interpretations. The Heart-Shaped Box in this case could be a name for the uterus.

Courtney Love gave Kurt Cobain an actual box shaped like a heart, containing love letters, the head of a baby doll and other things symbolic in their relationship. Therefore, the title of the song has a double-meaning.
Heart-Shaped Box could either mean a uterus or Kurt's gift from Courtney.

a uterus often referred as the origin of the "heart" symbol.
Nirvana wrote a song about it while his wife was pregnant with his child.

..If you look at a photo of a uterus and draw a semi-circle at the beginning of the fallopian tubes and a "V" near the cervex it makes a "heart"
"What is a heart shaped box?"
"It's a uterus bro"
