"Candy/Molly's Lips" is a vinyl-only split-single from the American grunge bands The Fluid and Nirvana. It was released in January 1991, and includes the songs "Candy," by The Fluid, and "Molly's Lips," by Nirvana.
"Molly's Lips" was recorded live on February 9, 1990, at the Pine Street Theatre in Portland, Oregon. It was written by the Scottish band the Vaselines about Molly Weir, according to band member Eugene Kelly, presumably because her Rentaghost television character Hazel McWitch typically appeared in whiteface with emphatic red lips. According to Michael Azerrad's 1993 Nirvana biography Come as You Are: The Story of Nirvana, the band's singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain was opposed to the release of the track, feeling that this version was not strong. However, the single constituted part of the band's buyout deal from their former record label, Sub Pop Records. "Candy/Molly's Lips" was Nirvana's final release on Sub Pop Records. The word "Later" is etched into the single's run-out groove.
Apart from the limited edition single released in 1990 Nirvana performed "Molly's Lips" several other times in concert from 1989 to 1993. On August 23, 1991, it was performed live with its author, the Vaselines' Eugene Kelly, at the 1991 Reading Festival in Reading, Berkshire. It was again performed live with Kelly on December 5, 1991 in London, England. On both occasions, Kelly and Cobain shared vocal duties.
A studio version, recorded on BBC Radio 1 for John Peel in October 1990 in London, England, appears on the 1992 tour EP Hormoaning, and also on the 1992 "odds-and-sods" compilation album Incesticide. This version was released as a 12" vinyl promotional single in Brazil, to promote Incesticide.
