Thanks to Elvis and Kurt Cobain
The world will never be the same.
Cobain quotes
I mourn for Kurt. A once beautiful, then pathetic, lost and heroically stupid boy.
Cobain
I hang with John and Kurt and Jimi too
With Sandy, Jannie, Albert, Charlie, the whole departed crew.




Cobain Kurt Donald quotes
Blown away by fame
We could all feel the shotgun hit the floor.
Cobain Kurt Donald
So I watched pay per view and polished my shoes and my gun
Was diggin' on Kurt Cobain sing about lithium.
Kurt Donald Cobain quotes
I am not well read, but when I do read, I read well. [p. 124]
Kurt Donald Cobain
Yo, I blow your mind like Kurt Cobain.
Cobain Kurt Donald quotes
And if you save yourself
You will make him happy.
Cobain
I still dream about Kurt. Every time I see him in a dream, I値l be amazed and I get this feeling that everyone else thinks he痴 dead. It always feels totally real, probably because I知 a very vivid dreamer. But, in my dreams, Kurt痴 usually been hiding - we値l get together and I値l end up asking him, "God, where have you been"
Cobain Kurt Donald
Yeah the whole Byrd gang's in here, like Kurt Cobain was here.

In Aberdeen, I hated my best friends with a passion, because they were idiots.




Kurt Donald Cobain quotes
To be positive at all times is to ignore all that is important, sacred or valuable. To be negative at all times is to be threatened by ridiculousness and instant discredibility. [p. 18]
Kurt Donald Cobain
Y hoy me encuentro tan solo y triste
Cual hoja al viento
Quisiera llorar, quisiera morir,
Como Kurt Cobain, de sentimiento.
(And today I am so alone and sad
Like a leaf in the wind
I wish to cry, I wish to die
Like Kurt Cobain, of feeling.)
Cobain quotes
I was simply blown away when I found out that Kurt Cobain liked my work, and I always wanted to talk to him about his reasons for covering "Man Who Sold The World." It was a good straightforward rendition and sounded somehow very honest. It would have been nice to have worked with him, but just talking would have been real cool.
Cobain Kurt Donald
Music comes first; lyrics are secondary. Most of my lyrics are contradictions. I'll write a few sincere lines, and then I'll have to make fun of [them]. I don't like to make it too obvious, because if it is too obvious, it gets really stale. You shouldn't be in people's faces 100% all the time. We don't mean to be really cryptic or mysterious, but I just think that lyrics that are different and weird and spacey paint a nice picture. It's just the way I like art.
Cobain Kurt Donald quotes
Jocks have completely taken over music... And just to get back at them, I知 going to start playing basketball.
Kurt Donald Cobain
He's the most talented person I ever worked with because he was talented in so many different ways. He's a guitar player and a lead singer and he wrote all the songs. He did everything for Nirvana that it took Jimmy Page and Robert Plant to do for Led Zeppelin. Kurt also designed the album covers and wrote treatments for the videos. He even designed the t-shirts. He was really a comprehensive genius when it came to the art of rock and roll.
Kurt Donald Cobain quotes
Why in the hell do journalists insist on coming up with a second rate Freudian evaluation on my lyrics when 90% of the time they've transcribed the lyrics incorrectly? [p. 190]
Kurt Donald Cobain
Low budget hoes trynna knock ya game, like
Did Courtney Love kill Kurt Cobain, from close range
Turn his brain to shrimp lo mein?
Cobain Kurt Donald
Punk Rock (while still sacred to some) is, to me, dead and gone. We just wanted to pay tribute to something that helped us to feel as though we had crawled out of the dung heap of conformity.
