According to Butch Vig, who worked as a producer on Nevermind, Kurt used this pedal on Lithium. However, it is important to note that whenever he played live, he would either use a Boss DS-1 or a DS-2 distortion pedal instead.

We used an Electro- Harmonix Big Muff fuzz box through a Fender Bassman on ‘Lithium’ to get that thumpier, darker sound.
