"Feminism means women controlling their own lives, and me not standing in their way by being a male. It’s not so much of an ideal as a sense. It doesn’t seem like there’s such a thing as a recognizable feminist movement like there was during the seventies, more a collective awareness. It’s in the way you live your life. Being aware of not offending women, but not so you become paranoid that you can’t feel comfortable in a woman’s presence. Sexist jokes are harmless as long as you’re aware of them. I kind of respect people who go out of their way to act like an asshole when they’re really intelligent though, it’s a nihilistic statement, like they’re saying there’s no point in trying to be a human anymore because things have gotten so out of hand. It’s a very Punk Rock attitude. I’m not talking about sexism, but that kind of negative attitude when you’re no longer able to appreciate passion or beauty." - Kurt Cobain, 1992.

Nirvana - Radio Friendly Unit Shifter [Studio Demo]

January 1st, 1991 - Nirvana in the Music Source Studios performing an early take of “Radio Friendly Unit Shifter.”

"When I heard ‘In Utero’ it was like, "Oh, THAT song! We did that!" I guess between that time (‘93) and the time they recorded ‘Nevermind’, Kurt wrote some more songs that he liked better; I think when the time came to record ‘In Utero’, he didn’t have a lot of ideas and so he went back to earlier material." - Craig Montgomery [producer]

Digging through the archives and ran across this gem. Jesus Christ.. "Six Degrees of Nirvana" from March, 1999 out of ‘New Music Monthly’ magazine.

Kurt on Rock music, 1993:

"Nirvana will put out a couple of more brilliant albums on their own terms and then become frustrated with being so close to general public acceptance and so financially in debt, that they will eventually result in releasing spineless dance music like Gang of Four."
