Review about Nirvana songs
Polly meaning | Reviewer: BB
    ------ About the song Polly performed by Nirvana

To Kurt this song was, probably, about a girl who got raped. To others it may mean that, or it can mean something else. That is the beauty in music, song meaning is what you think it is about. Especially in Nirvana songs you can't trap yourself in thinking what the writer had in mind. You have to think what it meant to you, and there is not only one solution, it can have infinite meanings.

The Beauty of Ambiguity | Reviewer: Louie
    ------ About the song On A Plain performed by Nirvana

"what the hell am I trying to say?" Not even he knew, Kurt has said in interviews that he was bothered by people trying to read deeply into the lyrics, and just enjoy the music.
But that certain ambiguity allows us to express our own creativity in his writing, thus creating something none of us could have on our own. Poetry is beautiful.

Polly is a pipe that talks | Reviewer: Thomas
    ------ About the song Polly performed by Nirvana

Polly is a crack pipe. When you are very high and hallucinate, your pipe may take on characteristics and tell you what to do. Cracker means another piece of crack. Its very clever. But I must get off her first.. means take a break and let the pipe cool a bit so the piece won't burn up and not turn into a hit. Many people use a blowtorch to light their hit.

Floyd the Barber | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Floyd The Barber performed by Nirvana

This is a classic tune that brings back lots of memories. The way I see it is Kurt is having a nightmare, probably after watching the Andy Griffith show before bed. How come nobody else thought of that?

You dumb fucks | Reviewer: Peter
    ------ About the song Mrs. Butterworth performed by Nirvana

This is not a song about himself, he's obviously mocking a certain type of person, taking the role of a miserable, probably middle-aged man whose life is so dull he's collecting worthless fast food glasses and talking about starting a business but never doing it. Which all sounds somewhat like a normal person you already know in your life, but Kurt makes it sound ridiculous which shows how he would have never have been able to stand living that type of life himself

Very Powerful | Reviewer: Layne Cobain
    ------ About the song Endless, Nameless performed by Nirvana

The recording on Nevermind is recorded without they really recording a song. they were jammin and Butch Vig just keep recording in case something was very good. As they progressed Kurt got more and more angry and that we hear in the song. Butch Vig told in an interview that he saw the frustration building up in Kurt and when the ended the song Kurt throwed his guitar and walked out of the studio. and the the other members and Butch looked at eachother and had no words for the intense session

A New Relationship | Reviewer: KimCobain
    ------ About the song Heart - Shaped Box performed by Nirvana

First, Kurt was a Pisces born on February 20th. Kurt was also heavily into H and quite possibly unmedicated Bipolar. Many of his song lyrics are not clear or defined - much the same as Kurt himself as he spiraled down further and further into his personal pain and misery. Sidebar: He was in rehab 6 times before taking his life on April 6, 1994. Sadly, no one could save Kurt from Kurt.

Ok, Heart Shaped Box...Courtney owned a heart shaped music/jewelry box. That was the inspiration to start this one. The song itself is about venturing into a new relationship where the territory is unknown and the parties are not sure of one another.

Kurt hid very little. | Reviewer: Chrismo8201
    ------ About the song Scentless Apprentice performed by Nirvana

I think the first review above is the right answer. Kurt responded to every meaning that his songs were about. He was all about hidden meaning as much as everyone contends. If he was asked about it he would answer it. I think why there is often disputes about his songs is that he wrote in a very vauge way. Mostly because I would have to believe he didn't take lyric writing very seriously at one point in his career. Then he realized that the vauge venacular he wrote with was what made him a very good lyric writer. Someone can write a song about whatever and it only gains substance when the person who hears or reads them comes up with their own perseived notions and feelings about what they mean to them. Take a song like Phil Collins in the air tonight. The lyrics are about something specific to him but we all hear what we relate to in it. Same with strawberry fields forever or hotel California or whatever. I again refer to jerads post at the very top. It's an adaptation of the book perfume which kurt liked. I know this because I heard him say it was. If he's lying I have no proof to the contrary so I will only take him at his word till I hear differently.

I think I'm dumb too.. | Reviewer: Casa
    ------ About the song Dumb performed by Nirvana

This song to me means once the day is done and the sun is gone and we are left alone, thats the time you feel the best, when your alone. When we feel pain and use drugs to make everything better, or have more fun. With or without someone it'll "help" mend those pains or pretending, then "we float around, hang out on clouds, when we come down" well obviously have a hangover. I think I'm dumb for feeling this way.. maybe this feeling is happiness.. idk.. but that's dumb anyway..

    ------ About the song Blew performed by Nirvana

...is blame, I first thought. I thought it's about relationships but it also be about the way he wants to live life
''...and you wouldn't mind I would like it blew''
I first thought it sounds like blue and it's exactly something he would say but the truth is, we can never know the reasons he wrote this song and it doesn't matter.
Let's just say he didn't want to make it obvious for a certain someone and that it means something else to each person, shall we?
