|Lyrically, it’s vapid. And then on another level, it annoys me because, as someone who makes music and someone who admires Kurt Cobain as one of the greater songwriters and musicians of our time—to me, it’s the prime example of a musician feeding into or just being overly influenced by success, even if his knee-jerk reaction is to write a song like “Rape Me,” where it’s railing against his success. He probably wouldn’t have written the song if it wasn’t for becoming this unlikely icon. And so, clearly, he wrote the song to be a punk rock song about, like, “Fuck the fact that I’m a celebrity and screw the fact that the man has co-opted Nirvana.”|
So...He's giving him shit for writing about something that was bothering him politically and personally like all his other music while also praising all his other music that was pretty much the exact same thing?
Reading that whole thing he comes off as a complete moron. The further he tries to justify himself, the dumber he sounds. Like, it's okay to say, "I don't like the way the song sounds and despite the intention behind it, it makes me uncomfortable and I don't necessarily agree with it" and leave it at that.
