"Here She Comes Now"/"Venus in Furs" is a split single from the American rock bands Nirvana and The Melvins. It was released in 1991 and includes the songs "Here She Comes Now" performed by Nirvana, and "Venus in Furs" performed by The Melvins. Both songs are cover versions of Velvet Underground songs.

The single was limited to 1000 copies and was available in up to 20 different colors.[1] The cover art resembles the albums where each of the songs first appeared: the cover of The Melvins side resembles the cover of 1967 album The Velvet Underground & Nico while the cover of the Nirvana side resembles White Light/White Heat.

Nirvana's cover later appeared on the Velvet Underground tribute album Heaven & Hell – A Tribute to The Velvet Underground, and on the 2004 Nirvana box set, With the Lights Out. This version also appears on the 2011 Nevermind 20th Anniversary Deluxe edition.[2][3] While on their European tour in November 1991, they recorded an acoustic rendition for Dutch station VPRO which remains unreleased but appears on bootlegs and in trader's circles.[citation needed]
