“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.” (Kurt Cobain)


“If you ever need anything please don’t hesitate to ask someone else first.” (Kurt Cobain)


“Rather be dead than cool.” (Kurt Cobain)


“My body is damaged from music in two ways. I have a red irritation in my stomach. It’s psychosomatic, caused by all the anger and the screaming. I have scoliosis, where the curvature of your spine is bent, and the weight of my guitar has made it worse. I’m always in pain, and that adds to the anger in our music.” (Kurt Cobain)


“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.” (Kurt Cobain)
