"At certain times when the house lights come on during certain parts of the songs I can see everyone. I think "Lithium" is a good example because when we break into the distortion part, the lights all come on and I can see everyone jump up and down and I realize it’s not only just the front part that I can see, it’s the whole audience. And it’s great. There’s nothing better than that much of a capacity of people in tune with the band and giving off that much energy, which is kind of neat." - Kurt Cobain, 1993.

MTV: "So Kurt, when you fell, you didn’t really jump that hard, you just sort of like lay down into them. What happened to you?"

Kurt: "They immediately just started grabbing for me, trying to rip my flesh off for souvenirs. ‘Oh I have a piece of Kurt’s forearm… frame it… ‘"

on that unplugged setlist what does that say? something about a piano?

The idea, I believe from MTV at the time, was to have Tori Amos make a special guest appearance sort of like the Meat Puppets and play ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ on piano with Kurt’s vocals.
