Definitely interesting - thanks for posting.

Things like this make me think about how fascinating it would have been to watch Cobain evolve as an artist as he got older and what that would have looked like. Obviously a pretty selfish thought and I’m sure he would hate that there’s a shit load of people that think that.

fat, old and woke Kurt would be be much worse than he already was.

He did his legacy a favor eating the shotgun round

Listened to that song hundreds of times. Had no idea. Will never listen the same.

Damn. Thanks OP. Had no idea.
Same, it just popped up as a recommended video on YouTube. Normally I try not to click on that shit to validate their algorithms, but this one was worth the click

Went down a rabbit hole watching some of that guy's other videos - he's got some really good stuff.

Also has some political videos I don't necessarily agree with but find interesting nonetheless - particularly how he analyzes the use of language by different people (much like he does with Cobain's lyrics in Polly).

Wife is massive Nirvana fan. I just never understand the appeal of music but especially that brand.

Sad story about the girl tho and appreciate you sharing.

This. I listed to nirvana in the 90s like everyone else, but the music didn’t age well imo. I immediately turn it off now if it comes on the radio.

Cliffs for those that can't listen?
The song Polly was written from the perspective of a man that raped and tortured a 14 year old girl (based on a true story).

...

Polly wants a cracker
I think I should get off her first
I think she wants some water
To put out the blow torch
Isn't me, have a seed
Let me clip your dirty wings
Let me take a ride, cut yourself
Want some help, please myself
Got some rope, haven't told
Promise you, have been true
Let me take a ride, cut yourself
Want some help, please myself
Polly wants a cracker
Maybe she would like some food
She asked me to untie her
A chase would be nice for a few
Isn't me, have a seed
Let me clip your dirty wings
Let me take a ride, cut yourself
Want some help, please myself
Got some rope, haven't told
Promise you, have been true
Let me take a ride, cut yourself
Want some help, please myself
Polly said
Polly says her back hurts
She's just as bored as me
She caught me off my guard
Amazes me the will of instinct
Isn't me, have a seed
Let me clip your dirty wings
Let me take a ride, cut yourself
Want some help, please myself
Got some rope, haven't told
Promise you, have been true
Let me take a ride, cut yourself
Want some help, please myself
