Did you know?
The Man Who Sold The World: "The Man Who Sold the World" is a song written and performed originally by David Bowie.
Smells Like Teen Spirit: Cobain came up with the song's title when his friend Kathleen Hanna,
At the time the lead singer of the riot grrrl punk band Bikini Kill,
spray painted "Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit" on his wall.
Since they had been discussing anarchism, punk rock, and similar topics,
Cobain interpreted the slogan as having a revolutionary meaning.
What Hanna actually meant, was that Cobain smelled like the
deodorant Teen Spirit, which his then-girlfriend Tobi Vail wore.
Cobain later claimed that he was unaware that it was a brand of
Deodorant until months after the single was released.
Rape Me: Nirvana biographer Michael Azerrad stated that "Rape Me" seemed to
Deal with Cobain's distaste of the media's coverage on his personal life.
While Cobain said the song was written long before his troubles with drug
Addiction became public, he agreed that the song could be viewed in that light.
You Know You're Right: Kurt wrote this song as a sarcastic reference to his wife Courtney Love,
At a very turbulent time in their relationship (shortly before his suicide),
The title and predominant lyric: "you know your right" and also "nothing really bothers her,
She just wants to love herself", both refer to Kurt's frustration with Courtney.
