A Celebration of the Mind of Kurt Cobain

If you grew up in the early 90’s, like I did, Kurt Cobain is one of those rare musical talents we got exposed to that can only be described as an icon.

Nirvana was one of those bands like the Beatles that exploded onto the music scene in such a manner That the impact they left on the industry is permanent. Some bands are like footprints in sand. Nirvana was like a bootprint in wet concrete. And tragically, like too many artists of the ilk, Cobain left this mortal world way too soon. On Today, what would have been Cobain’s 50th birthday, we should celebrate the brilliance that he shared not only musically, but through his writings.

Below is a collection of quotes from his personal journals, interviews, and song lyrics. You will sorely be missed, Mr. Cobain.

“I’d rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.”

“Nobody dies a virgin… Life fucks us all.”

“Thank you for the tragedy. I need it for my art.”

“Birds scream at the top of their lungs in horrified hellish rage every morning at daybreak to warn us all of the truth, but sadly we don’t speak bird.”

“Practice makes perfect, but nobody’s perfect, so why practice?”

“If you’re really a mean person you’re going to come back as a fly and eat poop.”

“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of who you are”

“The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.”

“There’s good in all of us and I think I simply love people too much, so much that it makes me feel too fucking sad.”

“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.”

“I’m so happy. Cause today I found my friends.
They’re in my head.”

“Drugs are a waste of time. They destroy your memory and your self-respect and everything that goes along with your self esteem.”

“Rather be dead then cool”

“If my eyes could show my soul,everyone would cry when they saw me smile.”

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

“Before I die many will die with me and they’ll deserve it. See you in Hell. ”

“If it’s illegal to rock and roll, then throw my ass in jail.”

“I knew I was different. I thought that I might be gay or something because I couldn’t identify with any of the guys at all. None of them liked art or music. They just wanted to fight and get laid. It was many years ago but it gave me this real hatred for the average American macho male.”

“There are a lot of things I wish I would have done, instead of just sitting around and complaining about having a boring life.”

“I was tired of pretending that I was someone else just to get along with people, just for the sake of having friendships.”

“They laugh at me because I’m different; I laugh at them because they’re all the same.”

“I am not gay, although I wish I were, just to piss off homophobes.”

“Friends are nothing but a known enemy.”

“I mean I like to be passionate and sincere but I also like to have fun and act like a dork. Geeks unite.”

“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.”

“Rape is one of the most terrible crimes on earth and it happens every few minutes. The problem with groups who deal with rape is that they try to educate women about how to defend themselves. What really needs to be done is teaching men not to rape. Go to the source and start there.”

“I don’t care what you think unless it is about me.”

“I started to be really proud of the fact I was gay even though I wasn’t”

“I would like to get rid of the homophobes, sexists, and racists in our audience. I know they’re out there and it really bothers me.”

“The finest day I ever had was when tomorrow never came”
