Music Video[edit | edit source]

A music video was made for "Sliver" as a promotion for Incesticide in March 1993. Directed by Kevin Kerslake, the video starts with Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean Cobain (who was an infant at the time) dancing to the opening bassline and the band in a small, cramped, junk room playing their instruments. Kurt sings to the camera and his movements change with the music, with Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl (though not having played drums during the recording session) in the background of the room. In between shots, there are scenes of the baby and a Chim-Chim toy that had been given to Kurt by Shonen Knife as a present.

 At 01:42 of the video, an image of young Michael Jackson appeared.
