This was released a few months after Kurt Cobain died, and there is a reference to Nirvana's most popular song
in Snider's lyric, "I feel stupid and contagious." In his book I Never Met A Story I Didn't Like
, Snider explained: "People thought I may have been making fun of Kurt. I wasn't. In my mind, I was crowning him as the guy that all the douchebags from my generation were going to copy, and I was determined not to be one of those guys. When I heard his music, I knew it was great, and I knew I'd never measure up to him by attempting to do what he was doing."
