They go to a lake of fire and fry...

I heard a song on the radio yesterday, I don't know anything about it, I don't know what it's called, who sings it, or even if it's a new song, or twenty years old. I've never heard it before, I know that, but at the same time, the lyrics seem vaguely familiar. Anyway, I'm asking you people for help. The only verse I can really remember is the chorus, if any of you know anything about the song, please tell me. I've had it stuck in my head ever since I heard it. And I really liked it, if I can find it I will probably download it. Here's the verse I remember:

Where do bad people go when they die
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
They go to a lake of fire and fry
Won't see them again till the 4th of July

UPDATE:

I decided to get off my lazy ass (figuratively), and search for the lyrics myself. Turns out it's a Nirvana song, called Lake of Fire. I've never heard of it before. Here's the complete lyrics:

Where do bad folks go when they die?
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
They go to the lake of fire and fry
Won't see them again 'till the fourth of July

I knew a lady who came from Duluth
She got bit by a dog with a rabid tooth
She went to her grave just a little too soon
And she flew away howling on the yellow moon

Where do bad folks go when they die?
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
They go down to the lake of fire and fry
Won't see them again 'till the fourth of July

Now the people cry and the people moan
And they look for a dry place to call their home
And try to find some place to rest their bones
While the angels and the devils try to make them their own

Where do bad folks go when they die?
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
They go down to the lake of fire and fry
Won't see them again 'till the fourth of July


And, yes, iTunes has it, and I am currently downloading it.
