  • Alex from Portland, OrI always thought this song was about quitting drugs
    "I'll never burn again!"
  • Chelsea from Fryeburd, MeJoe, that line is from a Neil Young song. Get with the program.
  • Kevin from Albany, OrOK, Joe, it's people like you who make me mad. Not every Foo Fighters song is about Kurt. (Or even any of them)
  • Joe from Lockport, IlThis has to be about Kurt Cobain or his suicide. One of the last lines in Kurt's note was "It's better to BURN out than to fade AWAY."
  • Mike from Guelph, Canadanot exactly the best song of theirs, or even close actually. none the less i got bored so i posted the lyrics, enjoy.
