V. A euphemism for the word "Rape" made up by Wal-Mart, (and later adopted in K-Mart stores as well),in order to sell a Nirvana album. The album featured a song called "Rape Me", which most likely expressed the band's feelings about the music industry. Being the profiteers they are, Wal-Mart changed the name of the song, however most other text referring to the song remained the same.
