If you die you're completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on. I'm not afraid of dying. Total peace after death, becoming someone else is the best hope I've got.
By definition pop is extremely catchy, whether you like it or not, Cobain says. There are some pop songs I hate but I can't get them out of my head. Our songs also have the standard pop format Verse, chorus, verse, chorus, solo, bad solo. All in all, I think we sound like The Knack and the Bay City Rollers being molested by Black Flag and Black Sabbath.
We're so trendy we can't even escape ourselves.

Frances and Courtney, I'll be at your altar. Please keep going, Courtney, for Frances, for her life will be so much happier without me. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU. Suicide note.
for the last nine months we have had the pleasure to take Chad-Drums under our wings and develop what we are now and always will be NIRVANA

I wanted to move to Seattle, sell my ass, and be a punk rocker, but I was too afraid.
I'm disgusted with having to deal with the commercial side of our band at the moment and as a reaction, I'm becoming more uptight and complaining more. And it feels like I'm adapting a rock star attitude.
I hate it when people take the things I say and turn them into something sexual. Just because it's funny to them, doesn't mean everyone is going to take it that way. And I don't.
My mother died every night...it's safe to say, don't quote me on that.
I don't know why I do it. You know, dresses and wear lipstick. Gives me some sort of comfort. Some kind of satisfaction. And people call me a queer for it. Since I was eleven. But that's alright. I'm not so new to ridicule. Out of all things, I hate rape and perversion. Rape the action, perversion the words. Maybe some people just don't have a heart.
My generation's apathy. I'm disgusted with it. I'm disgusted with my own apathy too, for being spineless and not always standing up against racism, sexism and all those other -isms the counterculture has been whinning about for years.
Rather be dead than cool.

Thought the sun is gone, I have a light.
It amazes the will of Instinct.
I really haven't had that exciting of a life. There are a lot of things I wish I would have done, instead of just sitting around and complaining about having a boring life. So I pretty much like to make it up. I'd rather tell a story about somebody else.

If you're a sexist, racist, homophobe, or basically an arsehole, don't buy this CD. I don't care if you like me, I hate you.
I bought a gun and chose drugs instead.
My lyrics are a big pile of contradictions. They're split between very sincere opinions and feelings that I have, and sarcastic opinions and feelings that I have, and sarcastic and hopeful, humorous rebuttles towards cliche, bohemian ideals that have been exhausted for years. I meean, I like to be passionate and sincere, but I also like to have fun and act like a dork... Geeks Unite.
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.
I'm too busy acting like I'm not Naive. I've seen it all, I was here first.
We were just amazed we were putting out a record. We were, and are, still learning. But we've never cared much for professionalism as long as the energy was there.

That's not on purpose or because we don't care, we're just musically and rhythmically retarded and we play so hard that we can't tune our guitars fast enough.

I'm so happy because today I found my friends - they're in my head.
Punk is musical freedom. It's saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster's terms, 'nirvana' means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that's pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.
Don't expect me to cry for all the reasons you had to die.
