Return to Smells Like Teen Spirit (thing)
|Kurt even admits that they were trying to rip off [The Pixies]. (Really, who can blame them.) |
"I was trying to write the ultimate pop song. I was basically trying to rip off the Pixies. I have to admit it (smiles). When I heard the Pixies for the first time, I connected with that band so heavily I should have been in that band - or at least in a Pixies [cover band]. We used their sense of [dynamics], being soft and quiet and then loud and hard."
[Kurt Cobain] about how he wrote "Smells Like Teen Spirit", from a [Rolling Stone] interview by David Fricke, 01-27-94
Even though, I still think its a great song.
