"So this young guy from Silverchair looks like my dead husband Kurt and sings like Eddie Vedder. How lame ” - Courtney Love
Interviewer: “‘Teen Spirit’ seems to be a song about the apathy of your generation, and a condemnation of sexism and racism. How do you feel about your peers? Are you trying to revive the ideals of the ’60s or find an equivalent for them in ’90s?”
Kurt Cobain: "I have no intentions to bring back any old ideas or to rehash anything really. That was an interview I did at 10 in the morning, hungover."
Interviewer: "What kind of statement were you making with the song?"
Kurt Cobain: "When I wrote the song, I had no idea what I was writing about. The majority of lyrics are just pieces of poetry I had written that I threw together."
