Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
Originally titled Pay To Play, this song appears to be about many things, including annoyance ("stay away"), lack of popularity ("I'd rather be dead than cool"), and predictability in people ("every line ends in a rhyme"). (thanks, Matt - Millbrae, CA)
At the end of the song, while saying: "Stay away," at one moment Cobain says, "God is gay," which is something he spray painted on a classmate's car in high school as a way of pushing his buttons. Cobain had a gay friend in high school and at one point contemplated his own sexual orientation. The statement was to support gay rights, not against God. (thanks, ryan - St George, UT and Milan - Pancevo, Serbia)
