“Closing Time” (also referred to as “Drunk in Rio” and, incorrectly, “It’s Closing Soon”) is a song by American alternative rock band Hole, written by vocalist/rhythm guitarist Courtney Love, drummer Patty Schemel and Love’s husband, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.
The song’s origins are obscure due to lack of official information, however, the earliest known recording of the song dates back to January 1993, at which time Hole were writing new material for their second studio album, Live Through This (1994). The in-studio performance was recorded in Studio B at BMG Ariola Ltda., a recording facility in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on January 21, 1993. The session was a pre-production studio session, produced by Craig Montgomery, for Nirvana for their forthcoming album, In Utero (1993) and lasted for three days. On the third and final day of the session, Love and Schemel joined the band in-studio and were given the opportunity to practice and record new Hole material during Nirvana’s session breaks. At least three other Hole songs are known to have been recorded; “Miss World,” which featured Cobain on bass, “Softer, Softest,” “She Walks on Me” and “I Think That I Would Die,” which featured Nirvana touring guitarist Big John Duncan on bass. Towards the end of the session “Closing Time” was recorded. This recording, circulating unofficially in bootleg trading circles, featured Love on vocals and lead guitar, Cobain on bass and Schemel on drums and lead to the song being referred to as “Drunk in Rio,” due to fact that all three musicians were intoxicated when recording.
