WENNNerdist.com, West, who played dimwitted feline Stimpson J. Cat on the cult show, said a young Cobain strolled into the offices of Spumco, the company behind the show, and offered up a track.
Unfortunately, the show's producers were less than impressed, and the future icon's work was dismissed.
West says, "One day, this scraggly kid came in and said he wanted to write a song for 'Ren & Stimpy' ... and it was Kurt Cobain. [The TV execs] said, 'Yeah, that's great', and they threw it in the wastebasket."
