Kurt Cobain Quotes

I thought I would try to be gay for a while, but I'm just more sexually attracted to women. But I'm really glad that I found a few gay friends, because it totally saved me from becoming a monk or something.

Thought Quotes, Women Quotes

Throughout my life, I've always been really close with girls and made friends with girls. And I've always been a really sickly, feminine person anyhow, so I thought I was gay for a while because I didn't find any of the girls in my high school attractive at all.

Life Quotes, Thought Quotes

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.

Freedom Quotes, Pain Quotes, Music Quotes, Suffering Quotes

 

I didn't know how to deal with success. If there was a Rock Star 101, I would have liked to take it. It might have helped me.

Success Quotes

Drugs are a waste of time. They destroy your memory and your self-respect and everything that goes along with with your self-esteem. They're no good at all.

I've never considered musical equipment very sacred.

Music Quotes, Sacred Quotes

My songs have always been frustrating themes, relationships that I've had. And now that I'm in love, I expect it to be really happy, or at least there won't be half as much anger as there was.

Love Quotes, Anger Quotes, Relationship Quotes

I've had this terrible stomach problem for years, and that has made touring difficult. People would see me sitting in the corner by myself looking sick and gloomy. The reason is that I was trying to fight against the stomach pain, trying to hold my food down. People looked me and assumed I was some kind of addict.

Food Quotes, Pain Quotes

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.

Anger Quotes, Pain Quotes, Music Quotes

I like to have strong opinions with nothing to back them up with besides my primal sincerity. I like sincerity. I lack sincerity.

Opinion Quotes

We have no right to express an opinion until we know all of the answers.

Opinion Quotes

I never listen to 'Nevermind.' I haven't listened to it since we put it out. That says something.

Mind Quotes

Looking back on the production of 'Nevermind,' I'm embarrassed by it now. It's closer to a Motley Crue record than it is a punk rock record.

Mind Quotes

When I listen to 'Nevermind,' I hate the production, but there's something about it that almost makes me cry at times.

Time Quotes, Mind Quotes

I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.

Love Quotes

There's nothing better than having a baby. I've always loved children. I used to work summers at the YMCA and be in charge of, like, 30 preschool kids. I knew that when I had a child, I'd be overwhelmed, and it's true... I can't tell you how much my attitude has changed since we've got Frances. Holding my baby is the best drug in the world.

If I wouldn't have found Courtney, I probably would have carried on with a bisexual lifestyle.

Life Quotes

I really haven't had that exciting of a life. There are a lot of things I wish I would have done, instead of just sitting around and complaining about having a boring life. So I pretty much like to make it up. I'd rather tell a story about somebody else.

Life Quotes, Complaining Quotes

I don't blame the average seventeen-year-old punk-rock kid for calling me a sellout. I understand that. And maybe when they grow up a little bit, they'll realize there's more things to life than living out your rock & roll identity so righteously.

Life Quotes, Blame Quotes, Identity Quotes

If you die you're completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on. I'm not afraid of dying. Total peace after death, becoming someone else is the best hope I've got.

Death Quotes, Hope Quotes

It's okay to eat fish because they don't have any feelings.

Feeling Quotes

Every time I see documentaries or infomercials about little kids with cancer, I just freak out. It affects me on the highest emotional level... Anytime I think about it, it makes me sadder than anything I can think of.

Time Quotes, Emotion Quotes

I've never been a very prolific person, so when creativity flows, it flows. I find myself scribbling on little notepads and pieces of loose paper, which results in a very small portion of my writings to ever show up in true form.

Creativity Quotes

My mother encouraged me to be artistic. It was written in a contract at an early age that I would be an artist.

Age Quotes, Courage Quotes

I'm too busy acting like I'm not Naive. I've seen it all, I was here first.

Busy Quotes

Ever since the beginning of rock and roll, there's been an Axl Rose. And it's just boring. It's totally boring to me.

Beginning Quotes

I was looking for something a lot heavier, yet melodic at the same time. Something different from heavy metal, a different attitude.

Attitude Quotes, Time Quotes

I wanted to have the adoration of John Lennon but have the anonymity of Ringo Starr. I didn't want to be a frontman. I just wanted to be back there and still be a rock and roll star at the same time.

Time Quotes

I'm a spokesman for myself. It just so happens that there's a bunch of people that are concerned with what I have to say. I find that frightening at times because I'm just as confused as most people. I don't have the answers for anything.

Time Quotes

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.

Time Quotes

Important Quotes

The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.

Challenge Quotes

I definitely feel closer to the feminine side of the human being than I do the male - or the American idea of what a male is supposed to be. Just watch a beer commercial and you'll see what I mean.

American Quotes

I like to make people feel happy and superior in their reaction towards my appearance.

4 Top Kurt Cobain quotes about Music

I get a thrill meeting kids who are into alternative music.

Music Quotes

I have to admit I've found myself doing the same things that a lot of other rock stars do or are forced to do. Which is not being able to respond to mail, not being able to keep up on current music, and I'm pretty much locked away a lot. The outside world is pretty foreign to me.

Music Quotes

Music Quotes

Rap music is the only vital form of music introduced since punk rock.
