On the Billboard charts, You Know You're Right was able to peak at #1 on the Mainstream Rock,[1] #1 on the Alternative Songs,[2] and #45 on the Hot 100 charts.[3]

There was a legal battle between Cobain's widow Courtney Love and Nirvana bandmates Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. Both Grohl and Novoselic wanted to use the song for a Nirvana box-set that was planned but Love did not allow this and blocked it from being released. Love said that the song would have been "wasted" by using for a box set, and said that it would be better-suited for a single-disc collection.[4] The lawsuit was settled in September 2002 and it announced that "You Know You're Right" would arrive on "a one-CD history of the band" called Nirvana later that year.[5]
