Review about Nirvana songs
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..

Another word that rhymes with shame | Reviewer: Natalie
    ------ About the song Blew performed by Nirvana 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?

whatever | Reviewer: nirvana fan
    ------ About the song Heart - Shaped Box performed by Nirvana

Even if this song is about courtney's vagina (which i doubt), she could have just kept it for herself right? Because this information wasn't really necessary and after she said this, loads of people won't be able to listen to this song the same way ever again. So, thank you courtney for ruining heart-shaped box. But whatever.
It's my belief that maybe part of the song is about her vagina, but not all of it. Whatever. That's a pretty stupid thing to argue about.

GUYS | Reviewer: 13 year old nirvana girl
    ------ About the song Milk It performed by Nirvana

Please can you please stop arguing about what the song is about or how Kurt died??? Just enjoy the song people!

Everyone interpretates lyrics in different ways, there isn't only one way, so if you think the song means something OK, fine, but don't say that it's the only real meaning of the song because that's madness guys! Do you think kurt would have wanted his fans to argue because of his songs?? He probably just wanted us to enjoy it.

this song breaks my heart | Reviewer: kid hayabusa
    ------ About the song Verse Chorus Verse performed by Nirvana

i recently read love and death and courtney love blatantly had kurt killed, she planted a suicide trail, read the book its obvious, also when kurt asked for those flowers for unplugged and the producer said like a funeral? and kurt said yeah like a funeral he meant this as a funeral for nirvana as he had already decided to quit, not a funeral for himself as most people think, i love nirvana and always thought kurt had killed himself but reading the love and death book has opened my eyes, if your a fan of kurt or his music give the book a read and make your own mind up, thank you tom grant

over rated | Reviewer: Mike
    ------ About the song Dumb performed by Nirvana

I don't mind Nirvana but to me they were the worst band outa seattle...AIC was way more talented and so wasn't PJ...I don't think Soundgarden was as talented as a whole but Cornell himself blows Cobain outa the water

*** | Reviewer: Bri
    ------ About the song Come As You Are performed by Nirvana

I think it's about the drugs. Sometimes it's a friend, sometimes it's an enemy, sometimes it's just a drug. "Mud or bleach" (heroine or cocaine, referring to the colour of it). This is song about relationship with drugs, and he swears for them, that he doesn't have a gun, because gun would separate them apart, i mean, he and drugs, his friend.

Stop arguing | Reviewer: Maria
    ------ About the song Come As You Are performed by Nirvana

I always thought he was saying Maria in Come As you are,but it's not and so quit trying to figure Kurdts lyrics out and have a good life. He would just laugh at all this B.S. You guys are acting like someone is trying to take your toys out of the sand box. Grow Up!
