    • Same thing happened in the Punk Movement in the late 70's. It's like, major labels were signing punk bands right after the band's first gig, y'know, a punk band would start, play one gig, and get signed to a major label right away, 'cause it's a trend.

    • Kurt Cobain often ridiculed rival Pearl Jam, arguing that it lacked the underground purity of Nirvana - that it was simply an old-line commercial rock band in grunge clothing. But Cobain, who was 27 when he died, liked Vedder personally, and that made him feel guilty about the put-downs. 'I'm not going to do that anymore,' he said in a 1992 interview. 'It hurts Eddie and he's a good guy'; L.A. Times 5/1/94, 'He Didn't Ask for All This' (Cobain about Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam)

    • I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.
    • I remember Kurt for what he was, caring, generous and sweet.
    • I still dream about Kurt. Every time I see him in a dream, I'll be amazed and I get this feeling that everyone else thinks he's dead. It always feels totally real, probably because I'm a very vivid dreamer. But, in my dreams, Kurt's usually been hiding - we'll get together and I'll end up asking him, 'God, where have you been?'
    • He really didn't care about a lot of things that you're supposed to care about in the public arena. He really just didn't care.
    • In his way, he was the closest equivalent this decade and this generation of rock fans had to a John Lennon, and I don't make that comparison easily or impulsively.
    • I think one of the reasons so many people connected to him is they could tell his music was really pure and instinctual.
    • He said, 'Man, I just escaped from Exodus' [a treatment facility]. I didn't have any foresight that the guy was going to do what he did. I could tell he was bummed out, and I'd been that way before. We were at baggage claim, and I thought I'd ask him to come stay at my house. I turned around and he was gone... What if. Only if. A lot of my friends have died. If only he'd...
    • He had an amazing ear for melody.
    • Lyrically I thought Kurt's writing was sort of cynical and that his words meant more than even he realized.
    • I cried, I don't know why:.I don't like his music or anything:.you know it's awful about his baby I just::I don't want to talk about that:..I just don't think he has very many guts::I just don't see why he wouldn't want to see his daughter grow up:you know:that he wouldn't be excited enough about that to not think of himself::people just start thinking of themselves too much. I don't think it's so much that they become conscious of the world of video and the world of this and that and a world of fame, they just think of themselves and no matter who you are and whether you're a rock star or a garbage man, if you're thinking of yourself all the time you're not gonna be very good at what you do. With a baby you can tell them funny jokes when they're two and they'll love it, you can teach them about how everyone's an idiot and they'll love it:..but you know:..it doesn't occur to a lot of people how intense that is:..how beautiful it is.
    • I remember watching Kurt come through and thinking, 'God, this music is nuclear', This is really splitting the atom. They raised the temperature for everybody. Manufactured pop never looked so cold as when that heat was around. Nirvana made everything else look silly.
    • In 1991 there was a kind of shift in rock music in America - it was shifting away from all the hair bands in LA. And with Kurt Cobain you felt you were connecting to the real person, not to a perception of who he was - you were not connecting to an image or a manufactured cut-out. You felt that between you and him there was nothing; it was heart-to-heart. There are very few people who have that ability. I never met him but our guitarist Kirk Hammett had a relationship with him. We were doing this tour with Guns N' Roses in the US in 1992 and we wanted Nirvana to come out and join us. Kirk asked Kurt, but while Cobain said he would play with Metallica anywhere in the world, at any time, on any stage, he would not step up on the same stage as Guns N' Roses - obviously he felt that Axl was the antithesis to what he was. As I said, I never met Kurt, and he's probably the only guy in rock'n'roll that I have never met that I really wanted to - other than Bon Scott maybe. What a sad thing we can't hear the fourth Nirvana album. It would have been so great to be able to see how that would have evolved.
    • Most kings get driven so insane that they try to hit the same vein Kurt Cobain did
    • I remember the first time I saw him. I was 14 years old. I saw the 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' video and instantly fell in love with him, even though I couldn't see his face. I just wanted to see his face so much. After weeks of finding out anything I could about Nirvana, I saw his face - and he had a face like an angel. I loved him. He was my platonic love.
    • He had a touch most guitarists would kill for.
    • I only met Kurt once...I was touched by him. He seemed a little shell shocked as though he felt yet another show might drop at any time.
    • You know, I always thought I'd go first. I don't know why I thought that, it just seemed like I would. I mean, I didn't know him on a daily basis - far from it. But, in a way, I don't even feel right being here without him. It's so difficult to really believe he's gone. I still talk about him like he's still here, you know. I can't figure it out. It doesn't make any sense.
    • I meet him a few times. He was an pretty cool guy.
    • In twenty years from now, when people will look back at the 90's, they wont remember the commercial giants like Ace of Base or Backstreet Boys, they will remember the artistic bands and artists like Kurt Cobain and Nirvana.
    • I think one of Kurt's strengths was his simplicity. He knew how to write really catchy songs that said a lot without doing too much.
    • The only person I have any respect for as a songwriter over the last 10 years is Kurt Cobain. He was the perfect cross between Lennon and McCartney...but he was a miserable fuck at the same time.
    • Cobain was a marvelous singer...I heard his unplugged version of that Leadbelly song and it was such a perfect vocal that I was really moved.
    • He had a wonderful balance of raw, dangerous anger, but also he was this delicate, fun person...He was brilliant, but he played dumb. And you know, Kurt was funny as shit.
    • Kurt chewed bubblegum in his soul.
    • Kurt Cobain was one of the best of our time
    • I dont think there's any better expression for that era (the 90s) then Kurt Cobain and Nirvana.
    • Rage and aggression were elements for Kurt to play with as an artist, but he was profoundly gentle and intelligent.
    • He had life figured out really young. He knew life wasn't always fair.
    • [He] was very talented, but he was passive-aggressive, kind of a whiny white guy, basically.
    • [If he] applied the same brain to his music that he applied to his drug-infested life, its reasonable to think that his music may not have made much sense either.
    • I think Kurt was one of the deepest thinkers we've had in popular music over the last 20 years and if anyone deserves to have his songs dwelled upon it's him.
    • Kurt and I weren't the closest of friends, but I knew him well enough to be devastated by his death. For such a quiet person, he was so excited about having a child.
    • I mourn for Kurt. A once beautiful, then pathetic, lost and heroically stupid boy.
    • He really, really inspired me. He was so great. Wonderful. One of the best, but more than that. Kurt was one of the absolute best of all time for me.
    • There's something wrong with that boy. He frowns for no good reason.
    • That kid had heart.
    • I don't know why everyone on earth felt so close to that guy; he was beloved and endearing and inoffensive in some weird way. For all his screaming and all of his darkness, he was just lovable.

    • It's a shame about your future It's a crime about your past.

    • Don't feel like home. He's a little out And all this words elope. There's nothing like your poem A scratching voice all alone. There's nothing like your baritone It's nothing as it seems. The little that he needs. It's home The little that he sees is nothing he concedes. It's home
    • A truant finds home...and I wish to hold on... But theres a trapdoor in the sun...immortality...
    • There was this boy who played in a rock n' roll band And he wasn't half bad at saving the world She said he could do no right, so he took his life The story is true
    • First time I saw you, You were sitting backstage in a dress A perfect mess.
